Your Partner in Condominium Mortgage Lending

The Pinnacle in Portland's Pearl District
We look at condos a little different. Perhaps it's because our Pearl District office is surrounded by them. Or the fact we have access to loan programs that match every type of borrower. So when they come to us, we have an appreciation and expertise in condominium financing that few others do. Here are some of the issues we deal with on an everyday basis:
  • Pre-sale issues (We can do the first sale.)
  • Occupancy issues (Non-owner, etc.)
  • HOA's in litigation (Non-warrantable, etc.)
  • Empty shells for buyer construction
  • Apartment to condo conversions
  • Reduced down and little down options
  • Fannie/Freddie project approvals
  • Non-warrantable stated and interest only
We also work with investors that ask for less documentation for non-owner occupied low loan-to-value transactions. Interest rates on these types of mortgages are typically higher than conventional financing. Recently we've been given the green light on non-warrantable condo financing, and we've been approached with high LTV for jumbo non-warrantable condos. We can get spot approval from a lender to fund almost any type of loan. In the end, your clients will be served by a professional that knows how to package and present their information. Contact us today to experience the Plum Tree difference.
