Portfolio Mortgage Lenders

A portfolio mortgage lender can be completely different than any other lender. All loan approvals are underwritten in-house seldomly require investor signature. A portfolio lender will identify a market niche and in-turn develop a portfolio of Qualified or Non-Qualified loan products specific and unique to the under-served market demographic with either a Qualified Mortgage (QM) loan program or a Non-Qualified Mortgage (Non-QM) loan program.
