Several wholesale mortgage lenders have recently widened their offerings and expanded their customer bases. Among the new offerings are loans with special pricing, jumbo products and no-escrow programs.

A wholesale lending office was opened in July by Fairway Wholesale Lending. The facility is located in Denver.

The new office, which will handle mortgage brokers in Denver, Colorado Springs and other smaller markets, compliments wholesale centers in Naperville, Ill., and Plano, Texas.

The wholesaler, which operates online at, is a division of Sun Prairie, Wis.-based Fairway Independent Mortgage Corp.

In Santa Ana, Calif., Carrington Mortgage Services LLC said Wednesday that its wholesale lending division will now accept banks and credit unions as approved third-party originators. The new program promises to help financial institutions mitigate risk by avoiding the risks associated with primary lending on conventional and government mortgages.

Carrington noted that the expansion enables access to its 21-day loan closing program, which provides a $995 credit towards closing costs if the loan isn't submitted to underwriting within the 21-day deadline. Carrington's wholesale division is online at

A new aggressive pricing program dubbed Conforming Elite was announced in September by 360 Mortgage Group. The program was developed to expand broker business beyond Home Affordable Refinance Program originations and propel the wholesaler into a one-stop lender status.

Loans qualify for the new program as long as they are 15- or 30-year mortgages that don't exceed $417,000 or 80 percent loan-to-value. Financed properties must be owner-occupied or second-home single-family residences or planned-unit developments. Borrowers need a minimum FICO score of 720. Cashouts and subordinate financing aren't allowed.

A program that allows brokers to waive escrows on all conventional mortgages with LTV ratios of up to 90 percent and no mortgage insurance is available from United Wholesale Mortgage.

Troy, Mich.-based United Wholesale said qualified borrowers need a minimum FICO score of 720. Brokers can read more about the company's offerings at

United Wholesale said earlier this year that it is providing marketing support for broker clients in the form of pre-designed, customized flyers for borrower prospects.

A new wholesale-correspondent operation in Houston is expected to be a sedge way to clients in the rest of Texas for Affiliated Mortgage. The new third-party origination channel will be headed by Jerry Alred.

Monroe, La.-based Affiliated is a subsidiary of Benchmark Bank. The third-party origination website is at

A non-agency jumbo product line launched this past summer by Stonegate Mortgage Corp. is available to its more than 700 approved third-party originators in more than 32 states.

The 15- and 30-year loans range from $417,001 to $2 million and are available to finance owner-occupied one- and two-unit properties, according to the Indianapolis-based firm. Acceptable security also includes second homes, PUDs and rural properties with up to 10 acres. Stonegate's third-party lending website is online at

Rebate pricing is available on owner-occupied commercial mortgages from Avant Capital. The company recently said it expanded its bridge platform to include major markets throughout the country. More details are available at
