Serving the Underserved Initiative Reaches 10,000 Borrowers

ANAHEIM, Calif., Aug. 4, 2015 /PRNewswire/ — Carrington Mortgage Services, LLC (Carrington) today announced that the company’s “Serving the Underserved” initiative launched in 2014 has now aided over 10,000 borrowers with their home financing. Driven by Carrington’s commitment to create a more transparent and manageable home loan process, the program offers simplified loan offerings for first-time home buyers, many of whom have a FICO credit score below 640. As of July 2015, Carrington has originated over $1.8 billion in home loans for borrowers with credit scores below 640. Fifty-seven percent of the home purchase loan originations were from first-time home buyers.  This growth aligns with a national trend reflected in the percentage of Federal Housing Administration loans originated for borrowers with credit scores below 640, which is up 125% in just two years.

“Our goal is to simplify the path to home ownership wherever feasible and demystify the complexity that often surrounds the loan process,” said Carrington Mortgage Services Mortgage Lending Division Executive Vice President Ray Brousseau. “Our tailored programs help those who do not have sufficient cash on hand or may feel like their credit score isn’t strong enough to fulfill their dream of homeownership.”   … Read More on Yahoo Finance

 

Carrington Introduces “The Carrington Loan” Through Its Wholesale Lending Division

Loan program eliminates 100% of closing costs, simplifying loan process for mortgage broker partners and their borrowers

 MAY 27, 2015 – SANTA ANA, CA – Carrington Mortgage Services, LLC (Carrington) today announced that beginning May 2015, it will make The Carrington Loan available through its national wholesale lending division. Developed in support of Carrington’s commitment to serve the “underserved” market and first time home buyers, The Carrington Loan offers borrowers a more transparent, simplified home loan process with no closing costs or upfront financing fees to facilitate home purchases.

“The Carrington Loan simplifies the loan process and improves the experience to help remove the anxiety often associated with a mortgage loan, particularly for those who do not have sufficient cash on hand to pay upfront financing fees, appraisal and closing costs,” said Carrington Mortgage Services- Mortgage Lending Division Executive Vice President, Ray Brousseau. “With The Carrington Loan, there is no need for a mortgage broker to modify the rate after it is presented to the borrower to offset loan costs and loan closing fees, and unexpected increases to estimated closing costs are not an issue. Removing these barriers simplifies the process for our mortgage broker partners and their borrowers who desire to fulfill their dream of homeownership.”

This initiative presents additional opportunities for purchase-focused brokers to work directly with real estate agents, consumers and investors to extend their purchase home loan offerings. In addition, mortgage brokers who specialize in refinance opportunities provide The Carrington Loan as an option for FHA/VA borrowers.  Carrington has started providing Carrington Loan training to its broker partners throughout the program’s launch period. Mortgage brokers can sign up for the company’s “Daily Rate Report” and view the webinar schedule at www.CarringtonWholesale.com or connect with a Carrington account executive for upcoming training dates and times.

The Carrington Loan is unique in that:

  • There are no closing costs, appraisal fees, or lender financing fees.
  • Carrington pays all eligible loan costs as lender credits.
  • If any unanticipated lender costs arise, Carrington will issue a credit to cover them. This may include additional title or escrow service charges from the title or settlement company.

According to industry experts, one in three consumers has a FICO credit score below 650. For these consumers, and the brokers and agents working with them, obtaining access to appropriate financing options can be a challenge – one that Carrington is uniquely equipped to handle. Last year, Carrington lowered its minimum credit score requirement to 550, and expanded its guidelines on 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 patent-pending MyLoanDetailTM, 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 of its customers to complete MyLoanDetail prior to funding.

To learn more about The Carrington Loan visit www.CarringtonWholesale.com. The Carrington Loan is a government insured loan program, and any upfront mortgage insurance or funding fee that may be required by a government agency may either be financed into the loan amount or paid by the borrower in cash at closing. Borrowers are responsible for any services requested by the borrower that are not required as part of the loan, including, but not limited to rate-lock extension fees, survey fees, and home warranty costs.

Carrington Mortgage Services Launches New On Time Closing Promise Program
Offering 15-Day Loan Closings Through Its Wholesale Lending Division

Program features expedited funding process, wider qualifications and fewer restrictions

 FEBRUARY 4, 2014 – SANTA ANA, CA – The Wholesale Lending Division of Carrington Mortgage Services, LLC (Carrington) today announced that it has expanded its successful Purchase Promise Program to offer 15-day loan closings to borrowers looking to purchase or refinance properties. The new On Time Closing Promise applies to the majority of Carrington’s loan programs and offers expanded guidelines for eligibility with fewer restrictions. Carrington commits to be ready to close any qualifying loan within 15 business days of appraisal receipt or the company will apply a $500 closing cost credit to the loan at the time of closing.

Carrington’s On Time Closing Promise provides consumers, brokers and their real estate partners a shorter, more predictable timeline to secure financing, giving them a competitive edge in a tight market. Having a Carrington loan provides buyers with the peace of mind that their loan can be cleared to close quickly when a seller is ready to move forward with a sale. Expedited processing allows brokers to be compensated faster and helps alleviate concern among real estate agents over sales lost due to a homebuyer’s inability to close in a timely manner.

“In an increasingly service-oriented and purchase-focused lending environment, being able to close quickly or on the buyer’s timeframe is a distinct competitive advantage among agents and brokers,” said Ray Brousseau, executive vice president of Carrington Mortgage Services, LLC’s Mortgage Lending Division. “Carrington’s On Time Closing Promise – the next evolution of Carrington’s service proposition – will allow mortgage brokers to provide a fast and predictable level of service with greater efficiency than any competitive program we’re aware of.”

Certain exclusions apply. For eligibility information and complete details on this and other programs currently offered through Carrington’s Wholesale Lending Division, please contact a Carrington account executive at (866) 453-2400 or visit www.CarringtonWholesale.com/CloseOnTime.

IMPORTANT:
When locking loans with submission dates of 1/10/2014 or later,  the CMS underwriting fee is now included in your QM points and fees test (3% Cap rule).  

If you wish to have the CMS underwriting fee excluded from your points and fees test, Carrington will apply a corresponding LLPA to the final price of the loan equal to the amount of the fee.  

To have the Underwriting Fee applied as an LLPA, please email the CMS lock desk at lockdesk@carringtonms.com at time of lock.  Subject line: Underwriting Fee. Indicate that you choose to have the underwriting fee applied as an LLPA to the final price.

Regarding Changes to Locked Loans:
If the loan has been locked and you wish to change your selection, contact your Account Manager or Account Executive immediately. CMS may need to re-disclose the loan to the borrower. 

Automating the UW Fee Selection:
CMS is working to automate the process in Pipeline Manager’s pricing engine. When completed we will notify you immediately.
