Doing Due Diligence Right: Why It’s Critical in Today’s Housing Market


Join Five Star and Selene Diligence for an exclusive, complimentary webinar on the topic of new origination due diligence in the mortgage market. For a growing segment of the population, non-QM loans are the perfect fit for these “out-of-the-box" borrower scenarios. 

Our panel of experts will discuss the importance of compliance in the non-QM space, how proper diligence is key to getting these borrowers into the home of their dreams, current challenges faced by rate increases and inflation, and how due diligence can help prevent negative impacts on the secondary market.
