Mortgage Branch (Mortgage Net Branch) Options
In today�s tough lending environment, Brokers are finding themselves under an incredible amount of pressure. In fact, some state governments are discussing legislation that will greatly limit a broker�s earning potential. The prospect of that added to the reality that many of the federal agencies are creating ways to lower income while increasing the work load per file should cause brokers to look at the alternatives. The following alternatives have both advantages and disadvantages, and we can help you choose which will be the best choice for you:
OPTION #1. FULL TRANSITION:
There are a small number of brokers or smaller independent mortgage bankers that have the necessary capital on-hand to fully transition onto an independent mortgage banking platform and remain competitive against their peers. While many may think that the above is the only reasonable option, it may not be your best option in this current market. To execute this option well, a lender should have no less than $1,000,000 in liquid assets in their company name. It is preferable to have $2.5-$3 million.
OPTION #2. BECOME A LOAN OFFICER:
Another option is to go work for a larger company as a loan officer and if you love to write loans but don�t love the management chores, this may be perfect for you.
OPTION #3. BECOME A BRANCH:
What we believe may be the most intelligent option for brokers who do not have the necessary $1million liquid net worth to become an independent mortgage banker, yet still want to maintain a management role, is to transition into mortgage banking by becoming a branch of a company that has already done so.
Becoming a branch is not the last step for brokers with less than the $1million net worth. It is often the first step of many in positioning yourself to become independent. Joining as a branch can provide a secure safe haven for brokers transitioning into banking to learn the banking side of mortgage and build their net worth to a level that will allow them to become independent should they choose to do so.
What are the disadvantages of a Mortgage Net Branch?
If the mortgage net branch corporate entity doesn�t offer competitive programs to its branches, managers will end up brokering (if they�re allowed to) out most of their loans. This defeats the purpose of becoming a mortgage banker and re-instates the requirement to disclose yield spread premiums.
There are a number of new companies in this business. Accounting systems typically hit a meltdown and rebuild stage at a certain level of growth. If a company hasn�t been in the business more than a few years, or hasn�t grown beyond a certain scale/size, it�s virtually certain they haven�t yet reached and survived this event. Many branch offices die when this happens, as it invariably will. Another consideration is the transition time necessary to make the switch. Most mortgage net branch companies (excluding banks which are exempt from state licensing requirements) will not apply for your state license until you have �signed on the dotted line� and then the clock begins on waiting for a state regulatory agency to receive, review, investigate and (hopefully) approve your license. Then, the process (and fees) has to be repeated for each state in which you wish to operate.
