Carrington Mortgage Services Launches Mortgage Broker Marketing Portal
Online tool available exclusively to Carrington Approved Brokers provides easy access to marketing materials for a variety of loan products
The Wholesale Lending Division of Carrington Mortgage Services, LLC (Carrington) today announced the launch of www.CarringtonMarketingGenie.com, a mortgage broker marketing portal available exclusively to Carrington Approved Brokers as a value-added service. Carrington Approved Brokers can now market themselves to new and existing customers with professional, targeted materials covering the loan products most needed in their respective markets – regardless of whether or not Carrington currently offers those loan products.
From Carrington’s mortgage broker marketing portal, mortgage brokers can access, customize, order and purchase marketing materials covering a wide variety of loan types, including FHA Purchase and Refinance, VA Purchase and Refinance, USDA, Jumbo, Conventional, Low Down Payment, Co-op, and programs focused on the needs of first-time homebuyers. Having access to tools like this allows brokers to focus on other aspects of their business – most importantly, closing loans.
“Carrington’s broker network plays a significant role in our overall business strategy, and so we take the partnership we have with our brokers very seriously,” said Ray Brousseau, Executive Vice President of Carrington Mortgage Services, LLC’s Mortgage Lending Division. “By providing our brokers with access to effective tools to support their customers and grow their respective businesses, Carrington is able to further extend its reach to meet the unique needs of prospective borrowers – particularly those in the underserved market.”
Brokers who are new to Carrington or those interested in becoming approved should call (866) 288-1016, contact theirlocal Carrington account executive, or visit www.CarringtonWholesale.com for more information.
Carrington’s Commitment to Serving the Underserved Market
An estimated one in three consumers has a FICO credit score below 650 according to industry experts. For these consumers, obtaining access to appropriate financing options can be a challenge – one that Carrington is uniquely equipped to handle due to the company’s ability to both originate quality loans and appropriately service them after the fact. While Carrington will continue to provide a wide breadth of product and support to borrowers across all ranges of the credit spectrum, the company will increase its attention and focus on providing service to that underserved segment of the market where it can make the most impact – and where its core competencies are obviously needed. To accelerate and further enhance its ability to give this market the attention it deserves, Carrington has lowered its minimum credit requirement to a FICO score of 550, and expanded its guidelines on a number of FHA, VA and USDA loan programs, extending eligibility to more property types and reducing overlays.
As advocates of borrower education and in support of the company’s commitment to meeting the needs of the underserved market, Carrington developed MyLoanDetail™, a proprietary online loan review resource designed to improve the financial literacy of its customers by walking every customer through the details of their loan. This education initiative will help to ensure borrower understanding of loan terms and responsibilities. Carrington requires all borrowers with credit scores of 640 and below to successfully complete the MyLoanDetail online education program prior to funding.
