PORTFOLIO LOANS

September 19, 2016

Regulations for conventional government-backed loans have loosened slightly over the past few years, but for those who are self-employed or still find themselves limited by a recession-induced blemish, a portfolio loan might be the quicker route to approval.

Unlike a typical mortgage that is sold after closing, portfolio loans are funded by your lender and (typically) stay in-house for the duration of the mortgage. Instead of conforming to the standard criteria, the lender has an internal process that can work around issues which might otherwise prevent a loan from getting approved.

Traditionally, portfolio loans were difficult to come by and made up a small percentage of banks total loans, but we recently met with a manager at Talmer Bank and it turns out over 30% of their loans are portfolio; for Chemical Bank, who Talmer is about to merge with, it’s over 60%.
