 Flexible Qualification

We control all underwriting, so we can tailor loans up to $2.5 million to a borrower’s unique income and asset circumstances.

 Faster Approvals

We underwrite the loan and make exceptions ourselves, so approval isn’t delayed by investors.

 Live Scenario Desk

Our lending specialists are on tap to quickly price scenarios and identify ways to qualify, making same-day exception decisions after loan submission.

 Competitive Rates

Even when borrowers have complicated credit situations, we strive to keep rates among the lowest in the market.

What kind of borrowers are well-suited for Sequoia Portfolio?

Sequoia is especially good for using asset depletion income – one of THE EASIEST calculation methods in the industry!

All kinds of borrowers are suitable for Sequoia, but you may find the most success with difficult-to-qualify borrowers like:

  • Those needing payment relief, so a 40-Yr Fixed, 10-Yr Interest-Only is the answer
  • Those with high ratios that can be alleviated by aggressive Asset Depletion guides
  • Conforming or Jumbo loan amounts
  • Full Doc or Bank Statement qualification

Borrowers should have strong credit and personal financial strength to qualify for the best rates.
