Several Web sites help mortgage brokers shop multiple wholesale lenders for nonprime loan programs.

On Mar. 25, La Quinta, Calif.-based ONESTOPLENDERAPPS.COM launched a site that offers over 250 different lender options including wholesale and correspondent lenders, FHA program lenders, subprime, and other specialty lenders and warehouse banks, CEO Donna Beinfeld told in an e-mailed statement.

“A broker needs only answer just a few questions on 3 screens to generate an application package,” Beinfeld said. “They can ‘look’ at who they can do business with before they put in the information.”

After an initial five-question page that evaluates the broker’s situation (i.e. what states are they licensed in, etc.) the computer generates a list of available lenders for the broker to view, she explained.

Beinfeld said over 300 brokers registered in its database so far.

If a broker is not comfortable with the online process, Beinfeld said they could take the information over the phone and fill out the screen for them. “We have a software system that allows them to look at our computer as we put in the information.”

As for security, Beinfeld said when they “digitize the application, we are creating a hole in the form … they can continue typing the (confidential) information without being connected to our site.”

The cost for the service, Beinfeld said, is an annual flat rate of $250 with unlimited submissions. For brokers just looking for a one-time submission, the fee can be lowered, she added.

LenderLab says it also offers unlimited access to their online database for $49 per month and hosts “the mortgage industry’s most aggressive subprime, non-conforming, niche, and commercial loans.”

Wholesalers are invited to advertise their loan program free of charge, the site says.

The Salt Lake City, Utah-based company claims to offer 12,000 loan programs with 400 wholesalers in its searchable database that can be accessed after entering a few key criteria such as loan amount, loan purpose and property type.

WeirdLoan’s spokesperson Andras Malatinszky told that its loan search engine has over 1,200 lenders and about 80,000 – 90,000 registered brokers that utilize the site.

The site claims it is free to use for both brokers and wholesalers and offers a full range of loan programs.
