Stratton Equities: Pioneering the Future of NON-QM Mortgages

PARSIPPANY, N.J.--()--In an ever-evolving mortgage lending landscape, NON-QM mortgage loans are emerging as the industry's future, providing opportunities for a wider range of borrowers to achieve their homeownership and investment goals. Stratton Equities, the Leading Nationwide Private Money and NON-QM Mortgage Lender, has been at the forefront of this revolution for the past six years, setting the pace for other companies to follow.

NON-QM mortgage loans, short for non-qualified mortgage loans, have gained significant traction in recent years as a viable alternative to traditional QM (qualified mortgage) mortgage loans, which come with stringent government regulations and eligibility criteria. Recent statistics reveal that only a small percentage of Americans qualify for QM loans due to these stringent requirements.

According to industry data, the demand for NON-QM mortgage loans has steadily increased yearly, with a notable surge in the past few years. In 2022 alone, NON-QM loans accounted for a significant portion of the mortgage market, surpassing expectations. It has been estimated that one in four loans will go NON-QM in the near future.

Stratton Equities recognized the potential of NON-QM loans six years ago, positioning themselves as pioneers in private money lending, specifically NON-QM mortgage loans. This early recognition of market trends has been the cornerstone of their continued success.

Michael Mikhail, CEO and Founder of Stratton Equities, emphasized their focus on generating NON-QM leads and their commitment to offering a wide range of lending programs, including NON-QM, DSCR, Hard Money, and No-Doc Loans. He stated, "Our aim has always been to provide solutions that cater to a broader spectrum of borrowers. Stratton Equities had the foresight six years ago to recognize the market's direction, which is why we were at the forefront of NON-QM mortgage lending. This serves as a foundation for our continued success."

NON-QM mortgage loans are designed to serve most Americans who do not meet the strict eligibility criteria of QM loans. These loans facilitate home ownership, second home ownership, and investment properties, allowing income generation and wealth building for a more diverse range of borrowers. Contrary to misconceptions, NON-QM mortgage loans often offer competitive rates, making them attractive.

Traditional lenders like banks and credit unions primarily offer QM loans for one-to-four-family investment properties. However, these loans have heavy documentation requirements and lower loan-to-value (LTV) ratios, typically capping at 70%. Stratton Equities stands out by providing NON-QM mortgage loans for such properties with easier qualifications, lower documentation requirements, and higher LTV ratios, currently at 80%.

Stratton Equities also recommends closing within an LLC for investment properties due to tax and security advantages. Despite some lingering stigma associated with NON-QM mortgage loans, they often result in lower rates, higher LTVs, and streamlined documentation, making them a practical choice for borrowers.

Educating borrowers about the advantages of NON-QM mortgage loans and dispelling misconceptions is vital. Stratton Equities is committed to leading the way in providing these beneficial lending options and believes in the potential for growth and success in this market. Their loan officers benefit from the advantages offered by the company, including a consistent stream of leads, as exemplified by recent hires who have quickly achieved success within the organization.
