Original entry - We have received word that Priority Funding Mortgage Bankers, dba "Priority Funding" of San Ramon California is closing it's doors effective immediately. There is no notice on their web site. Per their site, lending focus may have been focused on the ITIN market:

"With the use of an ITIN (individual tax identification number) and other alternative credit sources, we can fund a 88% LTV/100% CLTV purchase or refinance in as little two weeks."

Looking at their rate sheets, they appear to be primarily Alt A, licenced in 8 Western States. We will try to get more current information. Calls left on 10-22-07 morning were not returned at the time of this writing, although one source confirmed the AE's were told of the news this morning. If you have any information regarding this year's volume, or current number of employees, please let us know. We currently believe about 40 people may be affected by this closure.

We look forward to updating this news when more information becomes available from the company.

Important: This company is on our list of lending operations that have "imploded". However, please note that "imploded" is a somewhat subjective and does not necessarily mean operations are ceased permanently: it can mean bankruptcy filing, temporary but open-ended halting of major operations, or "firesale" acquisition. All information here is provisional, and may contain inaccuracies (especially newer information). If you are planning on doing business with this company or any other one listed on this site, you should inquire with them directly on whether they can still meet your needs. Many are still operating in some capacity.
