Eagle Referral Partner Success Tips…

TIP ONE: Focus on profitable, high probability loans that close…

  • 80% of commercial loans that close are multifamily and residential rental loans.
  • Refinances and cash-outs 15 times more likely to close than purchases
    1. Owners are serious borrowers who want to:
      • Cash-out
      • Refinance maturing loans
      • Find better terms
      • Stabilize low occupancy properties
      • Rehab rundown properties to qualify for long-term financing
    2. Purchasers often lack experience, liquidity, signed purchase agreements or commitment.

TIP TWO: Non-bankable borrowers need your help. Please click the blue links below for more information and likely terms about each loan program…

TIP THREE:  Better Terms Available for Your FHA-HUD Multifamily Loans? | Free Analysis with Property Addresses: Better Terms for Your FHA-HUD Multifamily Loans?| Free Analysis with Property Addresses

TIP FOUR:  Don’t waste time with:

  • Property types not listed on loan program links
  • Rural properties
  • Loan amounts below our minimums
  • Loans we don’t fund
  • Shoppers
  • People who don’t:
    1. Return your phone calls, emails and texts
    2. Return loan docs and underwriting items
    3. Meet loan program requirements
  • In the “Gambler”, Kenny Rogers sang: “you have to know when to hold them, know when to fold them, know when to walk away and know when to run.”
  • Avoid low probability loans unlikely to close. You only earn referral fees for loans that close.

TIP FIVE: Ask your clients, referral sources and prospects for completed Eagle REO schedule (Real Estate Owned)

  • Confirms borrower experience
  • Potential list of other properties to refi or cash-out
  • Offer free analysis of FHA-HUD multifamily loans; all we need are property addresses

TIP SIX: Avoid these property types:

  • Rural  
  • Properties outside the 50 USA States
  • Restaurants
  • Bed and breakfasts
  • Hotels
  • Entertainment venues
  • Resorts
  • Big box retail
  • Shopping malls
  • Hair salons
  • Gyms
  • Camp grounds and RV parks
  • Owner occupied residential
  • Vacant or low occupancy properties
  • Tenants not current with their rents or hurt by the pandemic…
