What is a Portfolio Loan?
Portfolio loans or “In-House” Loans are loans that don’t fit in the “box” of a typical government or conventional loan program. They include bridge loans, swing loans, short-term loans as well as for borrower’s who may not qualify for typical programs for things such as being self-employed, etc. These are also loans that are not sold into the secondary market. In today’s world there are vast number of variables and situations that require a more customized to approach to borrowing. Everyone’s situation is always a little different and portfolio loans can often help in those scenarios. For instance, a portfolio loan might allow a borrower to use other real estate or other liquid assets as down payment to purchase real estate. They might include unique loan structures to coincide with a specific source of repayment. Finally, they may help borrowers such as self-employed borrowers, etc. who may not qualify under the typical conventional program. If you have a unique situation that requires a more customized approach and creative thinking, a portfolio loan may be right for you.
