The Mortgage Business-Not How It Was

It’s been a 30 year ride for me in this business. I thought it was time to reflect where the industry has been and where it may go. It certainly is not a boring job. I find it an exciting challenge to daily talk to people and work with them towards their goal of buying a home.

The industry has been in the news a lot in the last 7-8 years and there has not been a dull moment. There have been a lot of changes in the rules and just keeping up with those has been a huge undertaking, but it just takes me back to when I first started out. We verify everything. It’s the way it should be.

I have been through real estate booms and busts, trends come and go and so do people I have worked with. The industry has done some weeding out and hopefully most of the bad apples are gone and hopefully industry standards are where they should be.

What remains the same is that Americans still want to own their homes. I find that people place an enormous amount of trust in my hands and I do everything I can to make their homeownership goal a reality. What has changed, though, is the difference about how a mortgage is originated. The online channel has grown and the mortgage industry has finally automated the process to an almost paperless process. Yea!! Gone are the file folders of 3-8 inch thick loan files and pdf versions of documents loaded into our processing system has make copying and faxing a near thing of the past.

What I still feel is important is the relationship of the quality referral to an experienced and trusted lender. Though online access is readily available, the referral to your mortgage lender is important because they are handling all of your personal information and the trust factor is imperative as to who has your information.

A home purchase is close to if not the largest personal purchase you will make. Take the time to find your trusted advisor in this process. It will make the experience a smoother one.
