Products expand buying power of customers 

FORT WASHINGTON, PA – October 15, 2015 – Ditech Financial LLC (“Ditech”) today unveiled the new Closed End Home Equity product, available for the correspondent banking community. Ditech is one of the first non-banks to offer this product once only offered by banks.

The Closed End Home Equity product is best paired with a new first mortgage with Ditech. Together, the pairing allows borrowers – especially first time homebuyers who may not have a traditional 20 percent down payment – to avoid mortgage insurance premiums by keeping mortgage balances at or below conforming loan limits, and offering possible tax deductions and benefits.

“Ditech realizes that no two home buying experiences are alike, and therefore strives to tailor our options to the individual customer,” said John Davis, Senior Vice President, National Sales Manager for Correspondent Lending at Ditech. “This Home Equity product offers an excellent added layer to those options, rounding out a broad range of solutions with a first-rate delivery platform.”

Some features of this product include:

• Purchase money piggyback or credit only piggyback
• Single disbursements
• Loan amount in $100 increments
• Closed end, fixed rate and fully amortizing
• 10, 15 or 20 year terms
• Loan amounts as low as $20,000
• FICO as low as 680 permitted
• Debt ratio up to 43 percent allowed

Ditech is a trusted partner to financial institutions, providing mortgage and refinance loans to its customers. By removing many overlays, the company has made its products and services more competitive than ever, with a proven delivery platform. Additional features for the correspondent banking community include:

• The ability to price, lock and deliver individual loans through the Ditech website, including daily distribution of loan pricing with multiple lock windows;
