What Is A Wholesale Mortgage Lender? Everything You Need To Know
A wholesale mortgage lender is one that offers home loans to a third party. For instance, wholesale mortgage lenders frequently partner with banks and credit unions to make their products available to consumers. Commonly, they offer loans exclusively through mortgage brokers. Unlike retail mortgages—which are marketed directly by lenders to consumers—you can’t apply for a loan from a wholesale mortgage lender on your own. You’ll need to work with one of the company’s third-party partners.

Understanding Different Types of Mortgage Lenders
“A mortgage lender is an entity, often a bank, credit union, or specialized mortgage company, that lends money specifically for a real estate acquisition, including residential property,” explains Carl Holman with A&D Mortgage. “Understanding the various types of mortgage lenders is crucial because each type offers distinct terms, rates, and services as well as specific pros and cons. Having this knowledge can empower you to better compare options and select the lender that best suits your financial situation, property type, and personal preferences.”

Fed Skips Rate Hike in January. Are Cuts on the Way in 2024?
The FOMC’s pause in hiking strategy coupled with those economic indicators signal they believe inflation and interest rates should gradually descend. “Markets had already priced in a ‘no-change’ from the Fed, but political pressure is mounting on the Federal Reserve to look to cut rates sooner than later. Unless they bend, we believe rates will begin to start to slowly pull back in the second half of this year, with many economists predicting a mortgage-positive outcome from the May meeting,” said A&D Mortgage CEO Max Slyusarchuk.

Fixed-rate vs. adjustable-rate mortgage: How to compare and choose
If you’re attracted to ARMs, consider a shorter initial fixed period, said Max Slyusarchuk, CEO of A&D Mortgage. Slyusarchuk recommended a 3/1 ARM over a 7/1 ARM in the near term because “the market thinks the Federal Reserve will start cutting rates as soon as [2024].” The interest rates offered for a 3-year and 7-year ARM are comparable, so “why wait seven years to be due a recalculation? The sooner you get to your recalculation, the better.”

One consequence of the interest rate hikes over the past few years is that some homeowners are staying put and tapping the equity in their homes. Given the rapid appreciation in the housing market, many homeowners have large amounts of equity in their homes. The average U.S. homeowner possessed an impressive $288,000 in equity at the midpoint of 2023, according to CoreLogic. This was a substantial increase from the $182,000 recorded prior to the COVID-19 pandemic. One popular way to access home equity is with a second mortgage.
