An old friend, on various occasions, was known to say, “I’ve been kicked out of better clubs than this before!”
The line never failed to get at least a chuckle from someone within ear shot. Frankly, I don’t know if it was a true statement for my friend, but the phrase often comes to mind when a prospective borrower applies at Evoque Lending after having been turned down for a loan from a “conventional” lender.
Banks and other mortgage providers give the thumbs down to a lot of great people. People, in fact, who pose very little risk for a loan. The problem is that these lenders fixate on a couple of things, one of which is the magical credit rating number. Also, they are often unable to really understand a borrower’s financial situation.
For example, sometimes borrowers can’t show a long enough income history or because they are small business owners, they (legally) find ways to reduce their income for income tax filing purposes. However, if you look deep enough and ask the right questions, you can see that the applicant does have the income to support the loan.
Frankly, as we come out of a pretty difficult economic downturn, it seems like more people than ever are having these kinds of problems. We think it’s wiser to examine current conditions and look toward the future than dwell on the past.
I can easily prove my point. For more than 15 years Evoque Lending has been making loans to borrowers who have been turned down by other lenders for loans on Los Angeles, Orange County and San Francisco area real estate. If the folks who came to us weren’t financially able to handle their payments, we would have been out of business years ago.
Are you part of this group? Do you know that you have the ability to handle your mortgage payments but couldn’t convince a conventional lender? Please don’t let the initial bad news get you down. There’s an excellent chance that Evoque Lending has some good news waiting for you.
