5 Things Brokers Should Think About

Our Broker Program is a fantastic way to build wealth and increase your income. Approved Brokers can earn up to 5 points per closed loan, which can really add up. In fact, one broker made $52k in just one month. Additionally, our Broker Program does not require licensing (except for in California), and offers a designated Account Executive, in-house processing, and free resources, among many other benefits. We welcome you to sign up and bring us buy and hold investors looking to grow their rental portfolios. As you look for potential borrowers, here are five key requirements to keep in mind:

Credit Score

  • Our minimum median credit score is 680. If you find a borrower with a lower credit score, we invite you to share our credit score resources to help them improve their score to meet and exceed our requirements.

Loan-to-Value (LTV)

  • Visio offers up to 75% LTV for purchases and 70% LTV for cash-out refinances. Check out our loan programs to see how LTV impacts rates and how it fits into your borrowers’ needs.

Property Condition and Value

  • Visio Lending only loans on rent-ready rental properties; no construction projects please. In general, our minimum property value is $75,000 with some exceptions based on location.

United States Citizens Only

  • Make sure your borrowers can prove that they are US citizens; we do not lend to foreign nationals.

LLC Members Listed

  • If your borrower is financing through an LLC, we need all the members listed on the loan application. It will save you time, and help your loan close faster if you get this information before coming to us.

This is just a small checklist to get you started.  Or Approved Brokers will get ample white paper materials, along with the assistance of an Account Executive to provide all the resources you need.
