New Line of Financial Products to Now Include Luxury Avian Accommodations
CHICAGO, March 30, 2023 /PRNewswire/ — Owning, an online mortgage lender, announced this week it will be expanding its loan offerings to include an array of products specifically designed to upgrade the living and working spaces of live poultry.
Sensing the need for free-range chickens to have the necessary space they require to live comfortably and be productive, and with the price of eggs on the rise for the third straight quarter, Owning’s financial offering is a variant of the existing Jumbo loan, “The Eggstravaganza.” This loan caters mainly to those egg farmers with particularly large flocks of egg-laying hens who need the extra space. Boasting a nonconforming threshold in excess of $1,090,890, this loan is ideal for luxury laying spaces over 40,000 square feet, whether spread out across a field or in one of the growing number of chicken ‘high rise’ buildings.
The second new loan type, dubbed the “Comfort Layer,” takes its foundation from the 30-year fixed mortgage, though an ARM version is also available. Meant for a more modest, intimate egg-laying experience for flocks of fowl of less than two hundred, it still delivers on the promise to significantly upscale the standard of living for the productive hens that continue to lay eggs for households, restaurants, and bakeries across the United States. As noted previously, the rising market value of eggs makes this loan particularly attractive to personal- and small-sized hatcheries as egg futures are currently seen as a lucrative investment by market pundits.
Next, Owning is proud to unveil the third loan in the new series, “The Re-Coop,” aimed at helping egg farmers renovate their existing spaces to bring them up to a level of livability and comfort for their chicken residents. Chicken coops saw extensive use during the pandemic. Consequently, this led to many structures deteriorating as continual labor and materials shortages only compounded the problem. With many of the supply chain issues now largely resolved, this loan is designed to not only restore the existing inventory of chicken coops to pre-pandemic levels but also raise the living standard while keeping the sensibilities of the modern gallus gallus domesticus in mind.
Topping off this program, Owning will now provide a full range of insurance policies to further help pioneering egg-laying aficionados protect their investments in their chickens’ futures. New protections include (but are not limited to) foxes, cryptids (both tenebrous and corporeal), and natural disasters, as well as a host of other scenarios common to the industry. These policies will have the option to be bundled with monthly mortgage payments for maximum customer convenience and value.
“We don’t just want it to be a hen house, but a hen home,” Owning’s Chief Growth Officer, Scott Stephen, said. “This program is Owning’s way of giving peace of mind to egg producers while ensuring that America’s hard-working hens finally have the special place they deserve.”
