Correspondent lenders originate and fund loans in their own name and then sell the loan to the sponsor who services it or in turn sells the loan. Use this matrix to find the sponsor whose minimum requirements, programs and products fit your company's needs.

FHA/VA/Govt. lenders offer loan programs that are sponsored or backed by a government agency, excluding the government-sponsored enterprises now under conservatorship. Examples include loan programs offered by the Federal Housing Administration (FHA), U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) and U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) Rural Housing loans. LTVs are allowed up to 97 percent, FICO scores as low as 580 are allowed, as are bankruptcies/foreclosures, in some cases.
Hard Money wholesale mortgage lenders generally give more consideration to the value of the property/collateral rather than to credit history. LTV’s are usually under 65% and credit scores, if required, are under 500. They specialize in unique, hard-to-find mortgages. Hard Money lenders are sometimes referred to as Private lenders, Equity lenders or Portfolio lenders.
