Banking and wealth management focused on your unique wealth journey. Together we are the trusted advisor to individuals in the global innovation economy.

Residential Lending

Whether you are buying a house for the first time, looking to purchase a vacation residence, or investing in a rental property, we provide financing options to meet your unique borrowing needs.

Work with a Portfolio Lender

We typically retain mortgages in our portfolio rather than selling them in the secondary market. When you work with a portfolio lender, you’ll find greater flexibility, less complicated requirements, knowledgeable underwriting, and streamlined servicing.

Partner with a Lending Advisor

Our lending professionals act as an advisor, evaluating your needs and customizing your financing to fit your overall strategy. You’ll get a partner that will take the time to understand your objectives and guide you from experience.

For those experiencing financial difficulty as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, Boston Private is offering three months of payment deferment on residential mortgages. We encourage our clients experiencing this financial hardship to reach out to us for this assistance.

Expedited approval process to get you a pre-approved mortgage and help get you to closing faster.

Mortgage Programs

Jumbo Portfolio Mortgages

We specialize in jumbo and super jumbo mortgages for primary and secondary homes that offer competitive rates on both fixed and adjustable rate terms.

Conforming Loans

We offer a range of loan programs that conform to guidelines established by Government Sponsored Entities (GSE). These loans have limits on loan amounts set by county and state location.

Enjoy lower monthly payments while managing the timing of principal pay-downs. For borrowers whose income is heavily based on bonus or commission income, interest-only loans can be a convenient financial option.

Bridge Financing

Access equity in your current property or your investment portfolio in order to finance the purchase of a new, primary or second home.

Cash Out Financing

When markets move quickly and you purchase a property in cash, finance the property and regain access to cash and potential tax deductibility*.

Blanket Financing

Pool real estate assets and obtain one loan, collateralizing more than one residential properties.

New Condo Project/Non-Warrantable Loans

We offer mortgages on new and existing condo projects that are not approved for traditional financing.

Home Equity Lines of Credit

Tap the equity in your home to finance expenses and investments or to consolidate and manage debt.

Loans in Trust/LLC

Ability to hold mortgages in a trust (in CA and MA), or LLC (only in MA).

Community Homeowner Programs

We are committed to serving our entire community, including investing in low- and moderate-income people and neighborhoods.

Our lenders are skilled and knowledgeable. They work closely with potential borrowers to assist them through the complexities of purchasing or refinancing a home, providing one-on-one counseling, and helping borrowers to take advantage of resources that make owning a home more affordable through government and nonprofit agencies.

Our specialized loan programs and services are designed to assist low- and moderate-income families to attain and sustain homeownership.

These programs often offer reduced interest rates and reduced costs.
