Q: What is portfolio lending?

A:  Portfolio mortgage lending provides financing solutions to help those who do not qualify for the well-known traditional loan programs such as Fannie Mae, Freddie Mac, and the FHA. Therefore, portfolio loans offer greater flexibility to those with unique situations, which may or may not have contributed to their loan being denied per conventional market standard guidelines. As a portfolio lender, Eastern Savings Bank offers flexible, in-house underwriting with direct communication throughout every step of the process  - and best of all - when your loan closes with us, we maintain the servicing; in other words, we don't sell your loan!

A: If at any point the borrower or co-borrower forgets their username or password, they can click the Forgot Username? or Forgot Password? links from the login page.


Q: What are the rates at Eastern Savings Bank?

A: Because we offer financing solutions to help clients with unique situations, each loan scenario will be very different due to one or many factors involved (and not all factors being within yours or the Bank's control). As a result, our rates will vary and are subject to change. To see what you can expect based on some of your personal factors, speak to a loan specialist today: 800.787.LOAN. 


Q: What If the borrower and co-borrower share the same email address ?

A: They will still need to create individual accounts.  For each request they will receive only one email. They will both use the same link, but log in with their individual username and password.
