Guide to Non-Qualified Mortgages, 2nd Edition

As originations of conforming refinance mortgages decline, some industry insiders predict that, for retail lenders, not having non-QM products to offer will be a competitive disadvantage.

Industry players who’ve already embraced non-qualified mortgages and other nonprime lending are seeing positive results … and with the market predicted to grow to as much as $100 billion or more in annual originations, there is plenty of room for others to join them.

Explore whether originations of nonprime loans would be a good fit for your company, and gather insight and feedback from three of the largest players in the space in IMF’s Guide to Non-Qualified Mortgages.
