When traditional mortgage financing is not an option.

If you have circumstances that don't allow you to qualify for a conventional home loan, like a foreclosure, recent bankruptcy, or credit issues, a portfolio loan from NASB may be the solution. Our portfolio loans offer an alternative for qualifying requirements, looking at the entire picture of your income and assets. We have two portfolio loans to choose from, our Portfolio 1 and Portfolio 2, each with different considerations to match your situation.
