BOSTON, MA--(Marketwire - Mar 25, 2013) - National Family Mortgage (http://www.nationalfamilymortgage.com), America's leading online solution for peer-to-peer home loans between relatives, today announced that it has facilitated over $75 million in total loan volume since launching in late 2010. National Family Mortgage's safe and easy to use online documentation platform with automated payment processing allows consumers to invest in their own family members, entirely bypassing the broken banking system.
Eighty five percent of the company's loans are between parents and their adult children. With average annual returns of 3.25%, National Family Mortgage has helped keep over $34 million of interest payments within U.S. families. Lenders earn better returns than from traditional banking products, while borrowers save tens of thousands of dollars in interest payments and loan origination fees.
"National Family Mortgage is empowering families to build their own bank. We allow consumers to customize their own loan and use our technology to transfer wealth, prevent tax problems, and protect relationships," said National Family Mortgage CEO, Timothy Burke. "All of our loans are secured by registered mortgage liens -- the IRS standard for the home loan interest deduction."
How are families using National Family Mortgage?
Fifty four percent of borrowers report using their intra-family mortgage loan to help purchase a home. Typical use cases include: (A) down payment loans secured as second mortgages, (B) one hundred percent cash financing, and (C) seller financing.
Forty six percent of borrowers report using their low-interest family loan to either refinance an existing bank mortgage, or to complete a home improvement project.
What makes National Family Mortgage different?
Real estate loans and financial gifts with relatives can be a win-win for both sides, but should be documented properly.

Monthly loan payments can be automatically deducted from borrowers and credited to lenders -- expectations are clear, relationships are protected, and IRS tax reporting is simple.
Is it easy to setup a loan with National Family Mortgage?
