Mortgage broker Andre Hemmersbach presented a synopsis of the challenges and resolutions of some of his recent cases. To get a mortgage, a client must have sufficient equity and income, and must not be overburdened with debt. Each of the cases initially lacked at least one of these elements and he briefly showed how he restuctured the deal to achive the loan. He can typically be more successful than a bank in funding a loan because he is usually more experienced. He also has a greater range of funding sources, each with differing requirements. This gives him greater flexibility to match a loan with a client.
