Real estate agents are experts at finding clients, marketing homes, and negotiating transactions. But when it comes to in-depth knowledge of home financing – and especially non-QM loans – many realtors need help.
That knowledge gap is an opportunity for mortgage brokers. If you prove you can close deals, especially the more non-traditional loans, realtors are likely to keep sending you business.
LendSure wants to help you wow realtors, and to keep agents coming back with referrals. Here are 7 ways we can help you keep the referral pipeline open:
1) Provide a common sense approach to self-employed borrowers
Conforming lenders aren’t sure what to do with self-employed borrowers, even the creditworthy ones. LendSure meets this challenge by offering 12- and 24-month bank statement loans. Designed for the unique needs of self-employed borrowers, LendSure’s Bank Statement Mortgage program features flexible expense factors based on the individual business. LendSure’s programs come with extensive, common sense prequalifications, usually within 24 hours. You can say “YES” with confidence, knowing that LendSure has minimized surprises down the road.
2) Find more ways to say “yes”
Conforming underwriting often ends with a no; our underwriting looks for reasons to say yes. Designed for borrowers who don’t meet the W2-friendly guidelines of Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac, LendSure’s Super Prime/Alt-A Loan program helps get deals done. This program offers borrowers with excellent credit highly competitive rates, unsurpassed funding times, and loan options that are not available through conforming lenders.
3) Support house “flippers”
LendSure’s Fix & Flip program is designed for seasoned investors who want to buy distressed homes, repair them, and then sell them. This program offers the same common sense underwriting and service levels you expect with all LendSure loan programs.
4) Help the borrower submit a winning offer with Bridge Financing
Borrowers can gain a competitive advantage in a hot housing market by making a non-contingent offer on the new property. LendSure’s industry leading Bridge Financing loan empowers borrowers to access equity from their current home to purchase a new home, with no monthly payments on the bridge financing.
5) Offer comprehensive financing options for condos
The tragic collapse of an oceanfront condo building near Miami led Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac to further tighten the screws on condo lending. LendSure, on the other hand, continues to finance this property type through our Non-Warrantable Condo loan program. You can stop turning away business and offer borrowers financing for their non-warrantable condos – all with the program options and service levels that you’ve come to expect from LendSure. Many Realtors have been left frustrated by the tighter rules when trying to go the conforming route. Expand your network of real estate agents by offering these sought-after loan solutions.
6) Offer a mortgage approval that means something
In today’s mortgage market, every business opportunity is precious. That’s why when LendSure issues an approval, you can count on that commitment. In this time of market uncertainty, that’s not something all lenders can say.
While some loan originators write their approvals in pencil, you can count on our approvals, so you and your client don’t have to worry about LendSure finding excuses to say no to a deal that we had approved.
If another lender has backed out of your deal and left you stranded, bring the loan to LendSure. Our team of experienced Account Executives will work with you to get your deal funded.
7) Offer a Jumbo Prime mortgage
With home prices soaring, many of your clients are looking to borrow amounts well above the limits allowed by Fannie Mae, Freddie Mac and FHA. LendSure’s new Jumbo Prime program lets you meet that demand – while offering the exceptional service levels and expedited funding times you’ve come to expect from LendSure. LendSure promises to give you pricing in minutes, and to simplify your lives with a streamlined loan submission process.
