FirstFunding’s warehouse funding enables traditional wholesale brokers/originators to become non-delegated lenders, and have “wholesale loan closing and sale experience in a correspondent environment.”

FirstFunding is ideal for brokers who desire to evolve their operations and step up to the rank of Mortgage Banker, while avoiding the added burden of staff management plus extra overhead. FirstFunding is perfect for originators who have or want strategic lending relationships as a contributory part of their business operation (i.e., home builders, realtors, etc.).

FirstFunding is a warehouse lender, which means we provide a line of credit to lenders who fund mortgage loans.

What is a Warehouse Lender?

A warehouse lender provides a line of credit to a lender to fund a mortgage loan for a borrower prior to the loan being purchased by an investor and then sold on the secondary market. There are other terms that can be used for the lender which include creditor, non-delegated correspondent lender, correspondent, mortgage banker and banker. A lender may also be a chartered or community bank or credit union.

Why Are Warehouse Lenders Important?

For a mortgage loan to exist, the lender has to have money to lend to the borrower.

In the case of a lender that is a chartered bank, the money comes from the depositors at that bank. If the lender is not a chartered bank, then the money has to either come from the lenders pocket or from a financing mechanism from a warehouse lender. The warehouse lender has a lien on the receivable that is the loan funded using the warehouse financing. The warehouse advance is repaid in most cases through the sale of the pledged loan to a mortgage investor in a secondary market transaction. Warehouse lending is by its nature a short-term financing. Without the ability to fund loans, a mortgage originator cannot be a mortgage banker or correspondent mortgage originator.

I am impressed with the FirstFunding team and our clients that use them are very pleased. They have a lot to offer beyond funds. Compliance is where all the issues are today and I believe they are on top of that game. Few are.
