Sun West Mortgage Company, Inc. Named Million Dollar Lender by USDA Rural Development


CERRITOS, Calif. --- Sun West Mortgage Company, Inc. NMLS ID 3277 (Sun West) was selected as a 2014 Million Dollar Lender by the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) Rural Development for being one of the top private lenders offering USDA Rural Development's Guaranteed Rural Housing (GRH) program.

The award is given each year to lenders who have made significant contributions to supporting rural community development in Wisconsin by helping families establish homeownership through the GRH program. For fiscal year 2014, the USDA has recognized Sun West for its performance in utilizing the GRH program to help finance home purchases for moderate income families in Wisconsin.

By partnering with USDA Rural Development, Sun West is able to make homeownership more accessible to more Americans. The GRH program helps rural homebuyers by offering a zero down payment, 30-year fixed rate mortgage for up to 100 percent of a home's appraised value. USDA loans are financed through participating lenders and are guaranteed and backed by the USDA. Homebuyers also have the option of financing eligible home repairs and improvements as well as certain closing costs with the loan.

In last year alone, USDA Rural Development has helped nearly 9,000 families and businesses in over 100 communities, investing more than $571 million into rural Wisconsin through its various programs in affordable loans, loan guarantees, and grants.

For the second straight year, Sun West has received lender recognition from the USDA. "We are honored because the award firmly validates our hard work. Sun West is committed to helping diverse families finance their home purchases in more places, and the USDA loan program continues to be an integral part of our mission in making the dream of homeownership a reality for more hard-working Americans," said Chief Executive Officer of Sun West Pavan Agarwal.
