Industry Watch: Pricing updates at A&D, CCM turns pre-approvals into cash and more

A&D Mortgage has announced pricing improvements for 30-year fixed-rate conventional loans under $250,000. Key updates include reduced points across all loan tiers under $250,000, with rates starting as low as 12.5 basis points, as well as a “focused reduction” in points for New York loans.

LendSure has added a new bridge financing product, dubbed “BOOST” (Bridge Option Offering Seamless Transition). Through BOOST, borrowers can tap into the equity of their current home to make a non-contingent offer by getting cash out to use as a downpayment on the new home, instead of waiting for the sale of their current home to close. The BOOST loan pays off the existing mortgage, so no monthly payments are required for 12 months for owner-occupied properties (and six months for non-owner occupied properties) or until the property sells, whichever comes first. Because there are no payments, no debt-to-income (DTI) ratio is calculated on the existing property loan. That gives clients additional time to sell their departure residence and maximize the potential sales price.
