TROY, Mich., July 20, 2015 (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) -- United Wholesale Mortgage (UWM), one of the nation's largest and fastest-growing wholesale lenders, has announced an interest-only financing program available to qualified borrowers who utilize UWM's extensive broker network for their mortgage needs.

"We expect the program to be an incredibly popular option for well-informed borrowers, and in turn, a significant boom for mortgage originators," said United Wholesale Mortgage CEO Mat Ishbia. "The purpose of the program is not to enable a consumer to afford a larger house; it's for savvy borrowers who can regularly afford a house on a 30-year fixed mortgage, but choose the interest-only option to save additional discretionary income."

In addition to a required 20 percent down payment on the cost of a loan, UWM will only accept borrowers with minimum FICO scores of 720 and a 42 debt-to-income ratio to participate in the interest-only program. Borrowers will be required to begin paying down the principal of the loan after 10 years.

UWM is making interest-only financing more mainstream by broadening its reach to mortgage brokers, correspondents, small banks and local credit unions throughout the country. Large banking institutions have widely offered this option, but mostly restricted its availability to jumbo borrowers.

By making the interest-only financing option available to qualified borrowers through mortgage brokers, UWM continues to elevate the value that brokers provide in the mortgage industry and raise awareness of their benefit to borrowers. Further, the availability of alternative financing through the wholesale channel strengthens the ability of brokers to help a broad range of qualified borrowers achieve their dreams of home ownership.
