Will a Sponsor Be Approved if They Pass These Thresholds?
Sponsor categories define minimum thresholds required for approval but do not guarantee approval.  Other factors including historical investment performance, short sales, foreclosures, bankruptcies, lawsuits and judgements will all be considered as part of the Sponsor Approval process.
