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.

Carrington Mortgage Services Shifts its Focus to Concentrate on Meeting the Needs of the Underserved Market

Experience in credit management, underwriting and servicing make Carrington the go-to resource for credit-challenged borrowers – and the mortgage brokers and real estate agents who support them

MARCH 20, 2014 – SANTA ANA, CA Carrington Mortgage Services, LLC (Carrington) today announced plans to further sharpen its focus on reaching and serving “underserved” borrowers (typically those in the sub-640 FICO score range) – a sizable market that is largely ignored by today’s lenders.  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.

In addition to reducing its minimum FICO requirements, Carrington has added to and enhanced a number of its primary product offerings to further complement this strategy and increase its accessibility for the underserved market. Interested real estate industry professionals can contact their local Carrington branch or visit www.CarringtonHomeLoans.com/branch for details.  Brokers and banks can contact their Carrington account executive for information – or, to establish a wholesale lending relationship, visit www.CarringtonWholesale.com/become-approved or call (866) 453-2400.

An estimated one in three consumers has a FICO credit score below 650 according to industry experts. 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. While Carrington will continue to provide a wide breadth of product and support to borrowers across all ranges of the credit spectrum through its retail lending division, 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.

“Effectively meeting the needs of clients in the underserved market requires the ability to both originate quality loans and appropriately service them after the fact,” said Carrington Mortgage Services Mortgage Lending Division Executive Vice President Ray Brousseau. “While that combination of capabilities is atypical among most lenders, at Carrington, it’s in our DNA! Both Carrington’s lending platform and specialty servicing business were created to serve this particular market segment. That uniquely positions us as the lender of choice for this population of borrowers, and the mortgage brokers and real estate agents who work with them. Our message is clear: You can count on Carrington to serve the underserved and get the tough loans done right.”

Effective April 1, 2014, Carrington will eliminate conventional and jumbo loans from its wholesale product line and limit its acceptance of wholesale submissions with FICO scores above 680. However, Carrington will continue to serve veterans with VA loans across the credit spectrum.  The company feels strongly that this move is necessary for appropriately allocating its resources to provide optimum support to borrowers in the underserved market.

To enhance the company’s outreach to the underserved market and build awareness of Carrington’s ability to work effectively with these borrowers, the company has launched a robust, multi-faceted marketing strategy to inform consumers as well as industry professionals. A variety of initiatives – from Internet leads and online advertising to Webinars and community events – have been incorporated to increase brand recognition among these audiences and educate all key stakeholders about the company’s vision.

Empowering Borrowers Through Education

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 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.
