**Asset-based lending provides new opportunities for residential mortgage brokers.**


Many residential mortgage brokers have discovered that arranging investment and commercial property loans can significantly enhance their earning potential by servicing an entirely new client base to replace or supplement their home finance business as interest rates begin to rise.

In fact, many of Velocity’s broker clients have built a strong business from fulfilling the needs of under-served, independent real estate investors who find it difficult to obtain financing for their investments simply because they don’t fit the mold for a traditional bank loan.

Servicing that niche audience generates the potential for additional revenue and diversifies a broker’s business offering in the same way that a diversified stock portfolio protects investors from a market volatility.
