TROY, Mich., Dec. 18, 2014 (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) -- United Wholesale Mortgage (UWM), one of the nation's largest and fastest growing wholesale lenders, announced that it launched a product which offers conventional financing on up to 97 percent loan to value (LTV).
With Fannie Mae's newly released version of Desktop Underwriter(R) 9.2 (DU(R)), UWM was able to reintroduce standard conventional and MyCommunity Mortgage financing up to 97 percent LTV for first-time homebuyers with a DU(R) approval.
This program is significant because it opens up new business opportunities for both real estate agents and originators. Real estate agents will be able to help a broader range of perspective buyers and originators can offer their clients lower down payments and lower monthly payments. It also gives borrowers that are traditionally forced into government loans the opportunity to obtain conventional financing.
"Immediately after Fannie Mae released version 9.2 of DU(R), we had the opportunity to reintroduce this program given Fannie's changes, and we're the first wholesale lender in the country to make it available," stated Mat Ishbia, president and CEO of UWM. "We always strive to give our partners a competitive advantage. Being first to market allows UWM's partners to get many consumers into loans that are more affordable. Our robust technology and extensive training, in part, enables us to turn on a dime and continually expand our product offerings."
UWM's partners can already access the program by logging into its loan portal, EASE, to gain approvals. The program can also be accessed by UWM's award-winning UMobile application for Apple and Android Devices.
