Residential Mortgage Loans

SBEL has the resources and relationships to get your mortgage loan done when others can’t. We will work with you to identify the best alternative for your unique situation. This includes hard to prove income, high loan to value, too much existing debt, less-than-perfect credit, and bankruptcy or foreclosure. We are also your jumbo loan experts.

Refinancing & Debt Management

Refinancing and consolidating your debt with a South Bay Equity Lending loan can lower the total amount you pay out each month. You can even arrange to have extra cash. We’ll help you consolidate your high-interest debt, get extra cash for the things you’ve always wanted to do. You’ll get your money fast. We close loans in as little as 25 days.

Reverse Mortgage Loans

Are you a senior over 62 years of age? You may be eligible to convert part of your home equity into cash from loan proceeds. You can do this without having to sell your home or give up the title as long as property taxes and homeowner’s insurance are kept up to date. Instead of making monthly principal and interest payments to a lender, a reverse mortgage loan allows you to receive payments from the lender.

Client Testimonials

Hear what our happy clients are saying...
  • “Nancy was able to get me the BEST rate on the market and I will undoubtedly be referring her and South Bay Equity Lending to my family, friends, clients, and co-workers. Thank you Nancy for your incredible service, you’re a true professional!”

  • “After using South Bay Equity to purchase our home in 2013, we did not hesitate to reach out to them to refinance this past year. They gave us daily updates on the loan process, were easy to communicate with, and got us a great interest rate with a much lower monthly payment. Should any financing situation arise in the future, SBEL will be first on our list to call. We’d recommend them to anyone!”

  • “We were on the verge of losing our family’s fresh start in a new home near our family. Tom and Drew saved the day, and in record time! We love our new home and wouldn’t be here today without South Bay Equity.”

  • “It was very easy to work with John and SBEL. We have refinanced a couple of times in the past, and this was the easiest, quickest and least painful refi transaction we have experienced by far. John was very accommodating and flexible to meet our requests. The whole process was done fast and easily, in a friendly and easy-going environment. I would recommend anyone with a need for real estate financing to work with SBEL. The whole staff at SBEL are amazing!”

  • “Gabe took the time to understand our entire portfolio of properties, including the partnerships, the percentages and the equity. This took quite a bit of explanation and understanding.  He then took that information and helped the lenders understand the various LLC’s, the assets and equity held by each and ultimately brought the loan in for a landing. He was tenacious and detail oriented, making sense of request and documentation that we found confusing and unnecessary. We couldn’t have done it without Gabe.”
