Success Stories

City: Jacksonville, Florida

Builder/ Client: Toll Brothers

Scenario: Customer built $600k home, putting 20% down. Customer had 750 credit score, but when sold home 24 months prior, had a short payoff on the 2nd mortgage. Loan went for final approval at big bank and was turned down. AOHL closed it on a Portfolio Product in 26 days.

City: Atlanta, Georgia

Builder/ Client: Edward Andrews Homes

Scenario: Customer had a complicated income stream and was previously turned down by two lenders. Customer was putting 10% down and had great credit. Using a "common sense" approach to calculating his income we were able to qualify him. The loan closed on our Portfolio Select Program in 20 days.

City: Orlando, Florida

Builder/ Client: Beazer Homes

Scenario: Customer needed an FHA loan but had a 565 credit score due to some old medical collections. Angel Oak was the one preferred lender that will go down to a 500 FICO on FHA. We closed the transaction in 26 days on a Spec Home.

City: Atlanta, Georgia

Builder/Client: Paran Homes

Scenario: Borrower is needing to down size as she is elderly and can’t continue to go up and down her stairs. She was denied from the other preferred lender for a deed in lieu of foreclosure that she had 1 year ago. They advised that she needed to wait 3 years to qualify for FHA. She called Angel Oak and we were able to put her into the Home$ense program.

Also a majority of the down payment was a gift.
