As you already know, the market is continuing to intensify as the housing deficit increases. Steady job growth, an expanding economy, and a limited inventory of available homes are driving up median home prices across CA. This combination is expected to fuel increases in home prices for a foreseeable future. In response to these rising prices, lenders are easing their guidelines and qualification policies. Because of the strength of the economy and the regional real estate markets, we are noticing that lenders are becoming more creative with their qualification protocols.

The competition is fierce

We are always looking to partner with real estate agents. No matter if you are a veteran or new to the industry, we will follow your lead. Gloria and Curtis have led CenTek’s local team of in-house processors and underwriters for over 30 years, successfully closing more than 100,000 loans at all price points and complexities in almost every neighborhood of California. We can finance a full range of products in today’s market, including residential, commercial, apartment, investments and SBA lending. Our company specializes in an array of customized loan products and has tremendous flexibility regarding loan-to-value, cash-out concepts, mixed-use properties, etc.

CenTek can fund your client’s financing package, whether they are just entering the market as first-time homebuyers, transitioning up or down from one home to another, beginning to live off a fixed retirement income, or looking to diversify their financial portfolio with an investment property. With over 30+ years technical expertise in the residential and commercial financing industry, no loan is too complex.


Real estate agents have stated repeatedly, “If CenTek can’t do the loan, it’s simply not doable”


Are you tired of losing to a higher offer or all-cash buyers?

As we move into 2018, pre-approval and approval letters have shifted into a new dimension. Their weight is gaining more traction and our highly-regarded letters oftentimes compete against multiple bids and/or all-cash buyers.

CenTek’s newest strategy is to preemptively work with clients, even before they find their dream house. If necessary, our team will work with your client to maximize your tax returns, credit scores, and other financials to their fullest potential. Once we are familiar with their information, our in-house underwriters can write detailed pre-approval and approval letters customized towards both their financial profile and their desired property’s specifications. Many real estate agents across the state recognize our highly regarded letters and know we can close per-escrow terms.

Do you want another place to advertise your listings?

Every week, CenTek Capital Group distributes a “Market Update” to over 20,000 established clients, agents, CPA’s, attorneys, architects, and business managers.
