This cutting edge interactive monthly magazine that empowers actual funding through program matching rather than lender listing uses a proprietary technology system with an automated underwriting process that evaluates consumers' unique non-conventional loan request and their capacity to afford it. The proprietary decision-making technology is based on program matching, property eligibility, underwriting, ability to pay review, lender analytics, strategy and loan scenario modeling. The system will match the actual program that will fund a loan rather than give a list of numbers to call. To find out more or become a regular subscriber please visit
