temporary lender

Definition

A mortgage company that originates loans and sells them after a short period of time onto the secondary mortgage market, rather than holding them in a portfolio. Temporary lenders make money through origination fees, and through originating loans at higher-than-average interest rates that can then be sold at a premium.
