While your credit score will be factor, our primary concern is with the loan to value ratio of the property being used as collateral.
It's important for borrowers to have at least 25% down payment or equity in the property.
It’s in our best interest as the lender to have our borrowers succeed.
Therefore we will only lend money to borrowers we deem capable of making monthly interest payments and who are able to pay us back.
Everyday we encounter borrowers with unique loan requests.
