A Mortgage Professional is not a Mortgage Originator
A Mortgage Professional is a loan originator that can do a complete job in arranging financing for a customer. Some Mortgage Professionals work for themselves and others work with companies. They both do the same thing. They engage a customer who provides authorization to them to arrange for the financing of real property. With this authorization the Mortgage Professional will make all of the arrangements so that the mortgage proceeds will arrive in a title company’s checking account on a certain day. To accomplish this a large numbers of forms must be completed, explained to the customers and supported with proper documentation. Every form must be accurately completed and all required forms must be included. The numbers must be precise!
Some mortgage companies split the job of a Mortgage Professional into: “Originators”, “Processors”, “Underwriters”, “Closers” and because there is so many people involved they need to have “Auditors” and “Checkers” and “Quality Control Person”. Then the company sends the file to a wholesale third party lender who “Underwrites”, “Prepares for Closing”, “Closes” and “Audits” the same loan file with more forms.
This program trains experienced mortgage professionals on the best practices used to originate and close a loan by a single person.
- Develop a Client Base
- Take a complete Application
- Use Technology and not the other way around
- Pre-Qualify with Options
- Submit a Conditionless File
- Price and Lock Loans – Do you use Float-downs
- Clear to Close is the goal
- Keep your customer informed
A properly originated loan does not require changes and is a more profitable loan. A change of circumstances is one of the major contributing factors that cause errors on files. A properly originated loan requires an sound understanding of real estate transactions so that the proper questions can be asked during an initial interview. Information provided to a loan originator should be used by the originator to properly adjust the interview to the appropriate areas. A loan application taken by inexperienced originators use standard checklists and just accumulate information. It is not evaluated on the spot. During an quick telephone interview a Mortgage Professional can properly evaluate a caller and not only the determine if the prospect is a good customer but can also predict that a loan can be done. This is the part that separates a trained Mortgage Professional from others by using the initial interview to properly advise the customer.
Mortgage Professional Practices shows you what to do and how to do it.
A recent student summed up his evaluation of the course by stating, “My god this course is just insanely valuable. It’s a crime that I spent 18 years not understanding the hundreds of tax returns and the dozens of loans I lost because of not know this material.” Jeff K.
