NOTE FROM THE FOUNDER

This evening I am driving over to a potential client’s house to discuss their options for getting out of an oppressive mortgage that is slowly drowning them (and their ARM hasn’t even recalculated yet). I know from talking with them over the phone that they are underwater in their current mortgage and there is not even a one percent chance they will qualify for a new mortgage. You may be asking yourself “then why go over there if you know they won’t qualify?” My answer is that not only is this the right thing to do, but these folks need sound advice and help figuring out their options. I may be able to refer them to one of many reputable business partners I have aligned myself with in this struggling market. I mention this story because in this issue of TNR we have many articles related to helping you, the loan originator, offer potential clients those different options. Leslie Petersen, who has over 30 years experience in mortgage lending and also writes for MortgageCurrentcy.com, is back with our feature article on FHASecure. The media and government are touting the new Hope for Homeowners (H4H) program as the savior to this foreclosure mess, however, Leslie firmly disagrees and she will tell you why. We also have Raymond Bartreau, President of Best Rate Referrals and a nationally recognized marketing consultant, writing on the topic of building multiple relationships with reputable professionals who specialize in all of the following: credit repair, loan modification, short sales, debt settlement and Bankruptcy Law. I would like to take this opportunity to publicly thank VAMB, especially the Executive Director - Steve Baugher. We recently attended the 20th Annual Convention held in Virginia Beach. He and VAMB made us feel extremely welcomed and put on a great show. Steve/VAMB – Thank you, TNR looks forward to next year’s convention and will be here to help VAMB in any way we can. This month we are off to NAMB/West at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas Nevada (check out the TNR calendar for dates and details). The vendor lineup looks very well-rounded and I invite anyone attending to stop by and visit our booth, # 623. Look forward to seeing you there. Keep up the fight,

ethics: perspective of a felon Strive to be honest, diligent and consistent BY JEROME MAYNE

D

oes it come as a big surprise that a convicted felon— indeed, a white collar criminal—would have developed some thoughts about the topic of ethics? Probably not. Since my conviction, I have had plenty of time to ponder the idea of ethics, and I’ve conducted some research on my own about the subject. In doing so, I’ve received tons of advice. I must say, I wish I’d had this information at the beginning of my career. In 1999 I began serving a 21 month federal prison sentence for conspiracy to commit mail and wire fraud. The crime involved four real estate investors submitting fraudulent documentation in order to get approved for residential home loans. I was their loan officer. After the first few transactions, I knew in my heart that some of the documents I accepted were fakes. Over a nine month period I gradually started participating in the profits. I have been told by some people that my crime was “fraud lite.” Some have said that I was unlucky; wrong place at the wrong time. Well, there is no such thing as fraud lite, and luck has nothing do with making the right decisions. I committed a crime. I am not proud of it and I’m certainly no hero for talking about it now. However, there is an ethics lesson to be learned in all of this. Dictionary.com defines ethics as “a set of principles of right conduct.” My understanding of being ethical was that I base my decision to do or not to do something on the feeling I get

in my stomach. If that’s the case, how does someone teach “stomach feeling” to someone? Perhaps this logic is what led me astray. In a business’ Code of Ethics, one can’t possibly account for every situation. For every principle of correct conduct; for every “right” way to act in one situation, there is a different situation that follows, that may require yet a different “right” way to act. I was traveling in my car with my boys, four and seven years old. In the rear-view mirror I saw the older one punch the younger one on the arm. The young one howled, “aaahhhhhhhhooooooowwwww-auh!” I said, “Hey! Don’t punch your brother.” Immediately, the older one slapped his little brother in the arm. I said, “Don’t slap your brother either.” This was followed by a poke, which I followed with, “don’t poke.” A tickle – “Don’t tickle.” Then just a touch. Finally, I said, “keep your hands to yourself, period!” The instigator was reduced to leveling a taunting glare at his younger sibling. This could have gone on for hours. I finally gave them the ol’, “Don’t make me come back there!” (Which of course made no sense since, I was driving.) Doesn’t this example prove that there are simply too many variable situations in the real world? Yes, but through my experiences, I have learned that ethics isn’t about situations. It is about people and their behavior. Ethics doesn’t stand for “what to do.” It stands for “how to behave.” Finally understanding this made ethics less confusing for me. Not crystal clear, just less confusing. For employers and leaders, it is imperative that you

have a set of principles of right conduct. But to simply disseminate this information in printed format will not be enough. Ethics are best conveyed by example. Additionally, violations of ethical standards must be dealt with and not overlooked, or the unethical behavior will become business as usual. If you are a member of an organization that adopts a code of ethics, read the printed words and follow the examples of the leadership. Pay attention to the feelings in your stomach. They may not tell you exactly what to do, but it may serve as a red flag. Remember, justifying questionable behavior is nothing more than being dishonest with yourself.

Here are my theories: • Lead your ethics model by example. • Follow your ethics model with honesty. • Follow your instinct - it rarely tells you to do the wrong thing, first.

Take this convicted felon’s experiences and words for what they’re worth.. Strive to be honest, diligent, and consistent. Society, your company, your family, and your children need you to stay out of prison.

FHASecure What you need to know By leslie petersen

M

y original “assignment” was to write about how mortgage brokers can take advantage of FHA’s new Hope for Homeowners (fondly nicknamed H4H by HUD) to help their clients who are delinquent, underwater, or simply over their heads in mortgage debt. My assessment so far is that H4H “isn’t worth the paper it’s written on.” The better FHA option is FHASecure, an alternative program that works amazingly well for FHA approved brokers and their homeowner clients who are currently in trouble. A huge glitch is that the entire FHASecure program is currently scheduled to expire 12-31-08; whereas H4H is ongoing until 9-30-11. I strongly believe that FHASecure will be extended, mostly, because it looks so great politically – not to mention that it’s actually working. However, I sure can’t guarantee it.

Brief Overview, Hope for Homeowners (H4H) Before I entirely dismiss it, it’s only fair for me to tell you a little about Hope for Homeowners. H4H was legislated by the Home Economic & Recovery Act, and is being highly publicized by Washington as the program that will save the economy from foreclosures. I beg to differ. H4H became effective with HUD’s thirteen page Mortgagee Letter 2008-29, October 1, 2008. The parameters are quite complex and qualifying is difficult. It may take some time for pricing to settle down, but interest rates will likely


be the same or higher than those of delinquent FHASecure loans. The Upfront MIP (UFMIP) is three percent and the annual premium is a hefty one and a half percent. The nationwide loan limit is generous at $550,440; however, the maximum LTV including all payoffs, the three percent UFMIP, and all costs of the loan – is only 90 percent. Lenders are expected to waive their fees and cut their payoffs to make it work. There can be no secondary financing remaining. H4H borrowers must sign two additional promissory notes and mortgages with HUD, both recorded, which “share” (a) the current ten percent equity in the home (remember, it’s 90 percent LTV), and (b) any potential future appreciation. HUD will sometimes split some of their portion of the future appreciation with 2nd mortgage lenders, yet never with the 1st mortgage holders. Needless to say, this doesn’t sit well with first mortgage lenders. I can’t fail to mention that per legislative mandate, HUD won’t insure the new H4H loan if the borrower fails to make the first mortgage payment; another ouch for the lenders. Personally, I don’t think H4H is all that great a deal for homeowners or lenders, in trouble or not. My guess is that some of the larger lenders will use the program, but only as a last resort. Mortgage brokers most likely won’t get involved in H4H loans at all, which brings us back to FHASecure.

The FHASecure Program FHASecure has been around since August 2007, when it was established as a Presidential Initiative. Originally, it only helped homeowners who were delinquent as a direct result of a reset in their conventional ARM loan. On July 14, 2008, FHASecure was expanded to include all of the following: • Eligibility –rate and term refinances of conventional mortgages only • Loan amounts – from 97.15 percent to 98.75 percent of new value, up to the maximum allowable FHA loan limits in the area • Full borrower qualifying – with eligibility leniencies • CLTV Options for Insufficient Equity – unlimited CLTV to accommodate work-outs with current lenders • Non-delinquent FHASecure – standard FHA rates

and MIP for borrowers who need to get out of a conventional loan yet are not currently delinquent • Delinquent FHASecure – borrowers who are currently delinquent on a conventional ARM loan with many leniencies for prior and current mortgage delinquencies The point is to assist homeowners out of any conventional mortgage that they need, and into a nice, safe, FHA loan.

FHASecure - Maximum Loan Amounts The maximum LTVs range from 97.15 percent to 98.75 percent, exclusive of upfront MIP, up to the maximum allowable statutory loan limit for the area. Effective January first, 2009, the new maximum LTV is expected to be 100 percent, inclusive of upfront MIP. (Final calculations are still being hammered out by HUD as of this writing.) FHASecure - Qualifying With the exception of credit “eligibility” leniencies as allowed by the program, all FHASecure borrowers must fully qualify for the new loan using FHA’s standard underwriting guidelines. FHA only wants borrowers who are truly able and willing to make their future house payments; a homebuyer jumping from one bad situation into another helps nobody. FHASecure - Insufficient Equity - Delinquent or Non-Delinquent For homeowners who owe more than 100 percent of the current value of their home, FHASecure encourages “work-outs” with the current lender(s) by allowing unlimited CLTVs for existing and for newly created subordinate financing. Examples of “work-outs” include: 1. Existing secondary financing can be re-subordinated or modified to add outstanding charges or to otherwise accommodate the transaction. 2. A new second mortgage can be created by the current lender (or other source) to • cover payoff shortages and past due fees and charges, sometimes including PITI arrearages; or • cover all amounts that exceed FHA’s current maximum loan limit for the area. 3. Funds for new financing can come from any TheNicheReport.com

Hedge your bet, win $23,000 cash! Enter our drawing to win $23,000, and cover your HVCC appraisal compliance risks with maximum flexibility.

Mercury Network: More important than ever The mortgage market has seen its share of ups and downs, and collateral value is at the core of lending once again. You need accurate, independent appraisals done in compliance with all of the existing and new regulations — especially with regards to the new HVCC (“Home Valuation Code of Conduct”), which is slated to take effect in early 2009. Of course, with a new regulator of Fannie and Freddie and all the market turmoil surrounding them, nobody even knows if the HVCC will actually take effect. So, you’re in a quandary. Do you outsource appraisals to an appraisal management company and take on the risks associated with abandoning appraisers with whom you’ve had a good working relationship

for years? Or do you manage them in-house and risk being accused of influencing values? Is there a way to hedge your bet and get the best of both worlds? You bet there is. Since 2002, our Mercury Network website has been used by more than 200,000 mortgage professionals to order and manage tens of millions of appraisals, at full fee to the appraiser. And with our new update to Version 3.0, you get all the “double blind” ordering and communications that protect your legal liability, without losing access to your existing appraisers and without alienating them by inserting an appraisal management company in the middle.

You use us already and don’t even know it Even if you aren’t using the Mercury Network website right now, you’re using our appraisers. That’s because over 50% of all the appraisers in the country connect to you using our desktop and web products right now. You might order an appraisal by phone, fax, or e-mail, but the report is likely prepared and delivered to you using our Mercury Network technology backbone. Look at the bottom of your delivered appraisals and you’ll see “a la mode” there over and over and over. So sign on today and start using the “other side” of the Mercury backbone. You’ll get an easyto-use website interface (that scales up to full

server-side XML integration if you’re a bigger originator), better appraisal management, full nationwide coverage, more flexibility in handling appraisal assignments, complete automated rule checking of appraisals, and of course 100% compliance with existing and upcoming regs. There is no larger system, no more robust system, no more flexible system for managing collateral valuation than the Mercury Network. You can be ordering and managing your first appraisals in minutes. Come see for yourself, today. You’ll never look back, unless it’s to admire that pile of $23,000 in cash behind you.

source, such as “rescue funds” which are becoming increasingly available through non-profits, states, and other government agencies. There are restrictions on the terms of the secondary financing that I haven’t covered (see ML 2008-13); even so, lenders are becoming more and more willing to negotiate as opposed to paying the costs of foreclosure. Although clients must always negotiate directly with the lender, the new FHASecure loan won’t come together without the oversight and assistance of an educated and resourceful loan originator. Note: If the subordinate financing is a new loan as opposed to re-subordination or modification of an existing loan – the lender will price the new FHASecure mortgage using “delinquent” pricing, regardless of whether or not the loan is delinquent.

FHASecure Non-Delinquent Non-delinquent FHASecure includes all conventionalto-FHA rate and term refinances that are not currently delinquent. What’s great is that interest rates along with FHA’s upfront and annual mortgage insurances are the same as regular 203(b) mortgages, with the exception in rates noted above. In addition to all of the CLTV options above, the FHASecure non-delinquent has some credit underwriting leniencies. For instance, ML 2008-13, page 7, suggests that clients who kept their mortgage current yet let other loans slide should be given favorable considerations. Also, DE underwriters are encouraged to allow prior mortgage delinquencies that were clearly caused by a reset. No matter, the ultimate decision is still up to the DE Underwriter and/or lender who often impose their own credit standards or minimum credit scores. FHASecure Delinquent “FHASecure delinquent” is for refinancing conventional ARM loans only, and only if they are currently delinquent. (Prior delinquencies fall under “non-delinquent” FHASecure.) The delinquency must either be (a) caused by a reset, or (b) the result of extenuating circumstances. Option (b) is not available for those refinancing from interest only (IO) or from Option ARM loans. FHA has very specific limitations on the amount of times that the current loan can be delinquent, and for some reason, they are much more tolerant when the loan is not

an IO or Option ARM. (Don’t ask me?) Originators and brokers must examine the homeowner’s prior mortgage credit history at the very first of the process to make sure they qualify. FHASecure “delinquents” have much higher pricing than regular 203(b) mortgages. The Upfront MIP is three percent, though the annual is only 0.55 percent. Any future refinance of a delinquent FHASecure must be full-qualifying, as they are not eligible for streamlined refinances. However, you can always look to these borrowers for future refinances at lower rates once their credit history improves.

Bottom Line Whenever I’m speaking to an industry group about FHA mortgages, I always review FHASecure as one of the many viable niche products available. It’s not unusual to have one or two originators say that they are never able to get FHASecure loan files through underwriting; while others in the same room have successfully originated FHASecure mortgages time and again. I’m pretty sure that the first category lacks the education and/or patience necessary to make this loan workable. For a copy of HUD’s ML 2008-13, go to www. hudclips.gov. Additional information and reference charts are also available through my website. In the end, FHASecure is not a save-all. It won’t help all of your clients who are experiencing difficulties making their payments, but still, HUD reports a total of 325,000 FHASecure mortgages made as of August 2008, only one year since inception of the program. H4H does not come close to replacing FHASecure. I’m not the only one who will be highly disappointed and shocked if the program isn’t extended.

MANAGING PEAKS AND VALLEYS Tips to help you manage cash flow BY Gretchen underwood

E

very small business owner can attest to the importance of cash flow. The amount of time it takes for a dollar to pass through your business from raw material purchases to the sale of finished goods to money in the bank is a critical factor in determining success. According to the latest edition of the PNC Economic Outlook survey, business owners are more pessimistic about their cash flow than they were six months ago: Only 42 percent expect cash flow to increase over the next six months, compared to 51 percent last fall. Regardless of your current cash flow situation, it is a good idea to occasionally take stock of the cash management tools at your disposal. Below are tips to help you and your commercial clients maximize cash flow and make the most of your money: Develop a Liquidity Plan: Does liquidity “just happen� or do you have a plan in place to manage your cash on hand? By creating a simple cash forecast to predict when payments will come in and go out, you can anticipate disruptions to your cash flow. Consider maintaining a line of credit to avoid fluctuations. And if you have significant, predictable payments that occur infrequently such as tax or insurance payments, consider a reserve fund that you grow on a consistent basis to neutralize the disruptions that these disbursements may cause. Take advantage of technologies: The innovative banks offer a variety of technologies that can help manage your cash flow. Traditional services like credit card processing speed up your collections. Corporate cards help to consolidate and track spending as well as make fewer, better timed disbursements. Remote deposit enables you to deposit checks from the convenience of

your office. Online payroll enables you to do your payroll online anywhere that Internet access is available. And automated (online) access to investment balances and lines of credit help keep your cash balance within a target range. Revisit your receivables strategy: Offering credit discounts to your customers may be a competitive requirement in your industry, but be sure to examine these practices closely. How much financing are you providing to your customers? Is every customer treated exactly the same? Are slow payers getting a free ride while you are searching for some liquidity relief of your own? When you look closely at this element of your business model, you can usually identify some opportunity to improve cash flow. Seek out inventory opportunities: According to the PNC survey, 61 percent of business owners expect the prices they pay their suppliers to increase. Assess your inventory needs carefully, evaluate your mix of suppliers and possibly renegotiate trade terms. Inventory always creates pressure on cash flow and now may be the time to reevaluate your practices. Managing cash flow is one the most important things small business owners can do. Poor cash flow is a leading cause of small business failure. By revisiting your contingency plans, leveraging technologies and managing the factors that create cash flow pressure, you are better able to protect your business through the good times and bad.

Diversification When opportunities present themselves by Raymond Bartreau

T

his is no secret, times are tough for many in our changing industry. How do we all keep up? I recently wrote an article on the few forms of marketing still working. What happens when you exhaust all those efforts and have truly tapped into every outlet you have? Where do you go from there? I have the answer for you, “diversification”. I talk to a lot of folks that are currently successful in this market. Many of them have some variable of this same concept – diversification - in their business model, and therefore, able to offer many services to each and every potential client they run into. In order to provide quality financial services with phenomenal customer service you must have a wide array of options, in fact, the more options you have the better. In today’s market with current lending conditions, limited lenders, plummeting values, credit issues, failing banks etc… it is much harder to convert those 2 - 5 deals per month needed to maintain the same type of income generated in past years. What do you do with the folks you can’t refi? Some LOs are now doing loan modification referrals, some are also doing credit repair for their clients. My advice would be to network yourself with as many different people, from as many different areas of the financial services industry. Credit repair… as mentioned above, may be offered to clients by referring out to an agency. If you are not helping your clients find this option you are loosing money every day. Not only do most credit repair agencies pay referral fees but they also refer back to you the client once credit is restored enough to get the loan completed.

Find at least one company (preferably two or three) you can work with on this level. Loan modification… again, this one is mentioned above. Help your “turndown” clients who need it the most before they loose their home completely. Refer them to a loan modification company that will negotiate new terms on their current loan with their current lender. Most of these companies will pay you handsomely for these referrals, which is income on potential clients you normally would not be able to help. Short Sales… With values in the toilet nationwide there have never been a higher number of Short Sales. If you do loans in any of the value stricken areas of the country or if you work any ARM databases you will certainly run into folks that are upside down in their home, to the extent that a Short Sale may be their only option. Go and find an aggressive, reputable Realtor focusing only on Short Sales. Help your client get out of their mess and build yourself a solid relationship with a Realtor at the same time. Debt Settlement… Some home owners are having the most issues with their revolving debt. In years past, we would roll it into the new mortgage during a refi and move on, but in today’s market, it’s near impossible to find borrowers with enough equity to do so. If Refinancing is not an option, try and settle the debt for pennies on the dollar for your client. Refer them to a legitimate debt settlement company; take your referral fee if one exists, and move on to helping your next client. After their debt has been settled, you will most likely have a happy client that may use you in the future or even refer you business. Bankruptcy Lawyer… Unfortunately, some people

are to the point where they only have one option - and that is bankruptcy. Build relationships with lawyers that perform these Bankruptcies, they are an excellent source of income. They love referrals and don’t mind referring people back to you that may need your service. It’s always good to have a referral source to add to your menu. In my experience, through dealing with over 1200+ Loan officers every month, is that the successful ones have this network already built and is “fine tuning” this network day in and day out. While you are working your “day to day” marketing or advertising options, take your response and put them in the right hands for whatever service they may need. If you can’t help them refinance or meet their loan origination needs, help them and get paid in another way. Most loan officers strive to make 10k+ plus per month, this is still possible, even in this market, IF you diversify yourself and offer more to help your clients. From a consumers’ perspective, if you have all the answers for me, I will remember you over the next guy you can bank on that. People want full service, whether it is from the car wash or helping them obtain a mortgage,

and the more you can offer a client the more money you’ll make. Raymond Bartreau is the President of Best Rate Referrals and a nationally recognized marketing consultant.

Creating a 1800# call capture lead machine More contacts with less effort. BY Tom Ninness

T

he traditional loan officer has faced many obstacles and has been forced to utilize every tool available to reach the masses. Instead of relying on the basic face-to-face relationship with realtors, builders and past clients, new levels of innovation has elevated the loan officer to becoming a Mortgage Market Strategist. It means thinking ‘outside the box’ to gain clients. Call capture is a unique tool. For mortgage originators, the process records and tracks phone calls 24 hours a day from prospects. Call capture utilizes technology that allows more contacts with less effort. As a means of building relationships, call capture provides an opportunity to pass qualified leads to your best referral sources. Providing solid leads to those professionals with whom you align yourself will help build your sphere of influence. It creates a tool to offer your realtors, builders and “for sale by owners” (FSBO) prospects extended opportunities to touch your best clients. How Does it Work for Realtors? Agents will have the access to your call capture phone number that they may use on their marketing literature and are given specific extensions for each of their listed properties. These extensions are available for all of their marketing material, such as reports, consumer tips, and information on the property. Using the 1-800 technology has the capabilities of increasing the agents’ calls received by 400 percent and can save up to 50 percent in their marketing costs. The realtor has the responsibility of contacting the prospects, providing information, answering their questions and thanking them for their inquiry. Agents may use these extensions for all of their marketing material. As effective as this tool is, making it available to

everyone is not practical. As part of your business planning, clients should be broken into three categories. A, B and C will be used to delineate clients and the probability of purchasing a home. “C”s may be ready for purchase anywhere from 4 to 12 months in the future. They may be “lookie-lous” or serious buyers who just aren’t ready at this moment in time. Periodic email updates, with their permission, keeps your name in the forefront of their mind. Be available to answer questions, but don’t spend a lot of time pursuing their business. “B”s are more likely targets. There has been more consideration on the home buying front and they are serious contenders. Some additional attention should be offered to them, through email, mailings and personal phone calls. Their time frame is more likely 2 to 4 months away and educating them in pre-qualification and preapproval is appropriate. “A”s are the number one candidates. They are ready to buy today. Full attention should be given to their concerns. Frequent contact to these ready-to-buy clients keeps you in the picture, and confirms your dedication to customer service. This process of contact delineation is also appropriate for your professional referral sources. Every category of work relationships can be catagorized into A, B or C type prospects and will save you time and effort. It will also help in identifying who will be the best candidate for the 1-800 Call Capture marketing. “B” and “C” leads will make up 90 percent of your potential market. 75 percent of B & C’s will stay with the first contact that makes the time to educate them. 50 percent will buy from someone in the next 3 to 9 months. Call capture helps drive those potential clients to you. Those B’s and C’s are looking for product information, current rates, help with pre-qualification and pre-approvals TheNicheReport.com

and ways to improve their credit. Call Capture and the Prospect. Call capture listings pique the prospects’ interest; they see that the information is available 24 hours a day and they can listen to the information at their leisure. If they choose, the prospect can have the information faxed to them or they can be directed to the agent. The agent is notified directly about the interested property and the prospect’s contact information is emailed or text messaged to the agent, even if the phone number is unlisted. Working with Builders. 1-800 Call Captures allows sales coverage for a builder 24 hours a day, giving specific extensions on different models. It provides information, even before the sales trailer is up and running. Working with FSBO’S. Offering the FSBO the technology for prospects to learn about the home for sale also opens the possibility for assisting the home seller in his or her next purchase. All inquiries will be directed to you and allows you the chance to speak with the prospects, encourage pre-qualifying and make that important connection, even if the prospect doesn’t buy from the FSBO.

Although Call Capture costs a small amount per month, the marketing value and benefits for the loan officer is huge. Offering this service to realtors, builders and FSBO’s immediately creates a practical customer service oriented relationship at a minimal cost. As your clients learn to utilize the Call Capture features, it will elevate you and promote you as their lead loan originator. The following is a list of reports that the loan officer may use as a value-added feature for customer support: • For expired listings-“How to Guarantee you’ll get your Home Sold this Time! • For First Time Buyers-“Special Report-‘How to Buy Your First Home the Easy Way!” or Free Report-“How to Stop Paying Rent Forever…and Own a Home of Your Own!” • For Investors-“Avoid 12 Common Mistakes Made by Novice Investors and Guaranteed High Rates of Return! • For those looking for a mortgage in the future-“Secrets Lenders Don’t Want You to Know!

CENTER STAGE

CENTER STAGE WITH NETMORE AMERICA A sustainable future begins with the right relationsips BY THE NICHE REPORT

T

he Niche Report would like to introduce you to a new mortgage wholesale lender – NetMore America –who is building a next generation mortgage banker through the power of the right relationships. Mark Freedle, the CEO with the vision to start a mortgage business in Mark Freedle a very difficult environment, gave CEO us the opportunity to find out more about this fast growing Walla Walla, WA based mortgage lender with plans on expanding their footprint throughout the United States. Mark, what drove you to launch a mortgage company in such a difficult lending environment? Mark: Back in 2005 when the mortgage business was setting production records we saw the potential for a correction in residential lending as lenders stretched underwriting standards and non-prime ARM originations increased dramatically. In February of 2006, I began putting together a group of very senior mortgage professionals with strong underwriting and secondary marketing experience to start building out our platform to be ready for the opportunity. We officially launched NetMore in the third quarter of 2007 and funded our first loan at the end of October 2007. Today, we are the fastest growing mortgage company in the Northwest, with specific plans on expanding our footprint throughout the United States over the next two years. How big is NetMore today and where are you going in the future? Mark: Today, NetMore is focused on two lines of business; our wholesale lending channel and our

professional branch system. We have approximately 150 employees and are licensed in 18 states. Our goal is to move east strategically and be a nationwide mortgage banker over the next two years. To help us mange our growth, we are continuing to hire and we project that during the next 12 months we will hire well over 100 new employees. We just made some key senior hires, such as Lisa Schreiber as our Chief Strategy Officer and Scott Holtz as our new Regional Vice President, Eastern Region. From a production perspective, we are projecting full year 2008 mortgage production to be well in excess of $500 million, compared to just $14 million in 2007. By early spring 2009 we are projecting approximately $250$300 million a month run rate. Our goal is to be a top 25 national lender in the next 24 to 36 months. Tell us a little about your senior management team? Mark: We have put together a very experienced group of mortgage professionals. Lisa Schreiber, our new Chief Strategy Officer, her background is in building a quality national lending platform that is both scalable and profitable. Julie Krause, NetMore’s Chief Operations Officer, has more than thirty years of experience in the mortgage industry and was one of the first individuals to get her Computerized Home Underwriting Management System (CHUMS) number in the Northwest. Dan Ferris, our SVP of Secondary Marketing, also has more than thirty years experience that includes a Master Certified Mortgage Banker (CMB) designation. This team with the full support of all of our employees has one goal; to build a sustainable company together. What do mean by “…a sustainable future begins with the right relationships?” Mark: NetMore wants to work with professionals TheNicheReport.com

that clearly understand what it means to do the right thing for their clients or partners day in and day out. We believe there is tangible value in character and it is the foundation of building a sustainable business. We want to make sure we are always working or partnering with the right people or organization that share our core values of integrity, respect, accountability, forward thinking and commitment to creating value. Through the power of the right relationships, we believe NetMore will become a leading next generation mortgage banker and build a sustainable national platform through responsible lending. Where are you seeing the opportunities in today’s mortgage market? Mark: There are many opportunities that we see in today’s market. First and foremost we see many talented professionals looking for work. This allows us to employ the “best of the best” in our Leadership, Account Executives and Operations staff. We have already seen the value of a great team and the service levels they can provide. Great employees in conjunction with great technology solutions create customer satisfaction and loyalty that we can build on. We also see a real void for the mortgage broker. Finding knowledgeable wholesale lenders that are focused on building their wholesale presence in a sustainable manner is key to their success. Our FHA expertise gives us a significant opportunity as many competitors are still struggling to gain FHA knowledge or hire DE underwriters. All of our underwriters have their DE and we feel this gives us a significant advantage in the marketplace. How is your sales team navigating the current market challenges? Mark: For one, our industry is under siege. When that happens, many people exit and even those that are still employed are reluctant to go out on the street and ask for new business. Surprisingly, we have hired new and very seasoned Account Executives that are telling us just that! By putting our program out there with knowledgeable Account Executives backed up by experienced and customer focused operations, we see a terrific opportunity to grow our market share.

November 2008

What makes NetMore different from other mortgage lenders in today’s market? Mark: Our objective is to enable our lending partners, mortgage brokers and our professional branch system, to operate efficiently and “friction free”— a model based on service, speed and sustainability. We believe we have a better understanding of the mortgage business and how to execute with a significant strength and expertise in secondary marketing, risk management, communication and a commitment to being a true partner. Explain to our readers what you mean by a “friction free” process? Mark: “Friction Free” means a lending platform that incorporates easy to access web-based portal, intuitive processes where workflows can be easily understood and delivered, and risk mitigation applications that are applied while still allowing the user to move forward in the process with our end product being a complete quality package for investor delivery. Through the use of current web-based technologies and education, we will focus on our adoption rates to provide the biggest lift to our organization. What advice would you give mortgage brokers trying to understand the FHA product segment? Mark: FHA loans are more important than ever and there are few mortgage banking operations that have NetMore’s experience in the FHA product platform. For many brokers, FHA was not a product that was in focus until ALT A went away last year. Many lenders and brokers alike are still scrambling to get FHA approval and even once approved, there is a learning curve that has to be addressed. Experienced FHA lenders, such as NetMore, are few and far between. It makes it essential for brokers to partner with a lender that understands the FHA origination process, has the right relationships, and is committed to providing best in class service. There have been some talk among brokers about how difficult FHA is to work with and that FHA loans take an extremely long time to process. Is this true? Mark: This simply is not the case. FHA has made significant changes to appraisal requirements and the work items that were typical in the past have all but gone away. Processing an FHA loan is no more time consuming


CENTER STAGE

than typical financing. You just need to have the proper upfront disclosures and order your FHA appraisal through the FHA Connection website. Here is where a broker’s partnership with the right lender, such as NetMore starts to become extremely helpful. As you learn some of the FHA nuances, the knowledge of your lender can help you navigate and make this process friction free for both the broker and their client. What is some advice you can offer mortgage brokers to be successful in today’s environment? The best advice anyone can give today is to evaluate your business model by asking some key questions; What is your origination strategy? Who are you partnering with to help you weather the storm? Is your business model focused on you or are you relying on a lender that might decide they don’t want to “play” anymore? Who can offer you both the education and deliver the service you need to keep your business on track? It’s all about relationships these days and the right ones will make or break your future!


TIP OF THE MONTH

TIP OF THE MONTH Walking the thin line of Benefit BY STEWART MEDNICK

B

enefit to you? Or benefit to the customer? If you benefit, then you are paid well on a closing. If the customer benefits, you do not get paid so well. If you benefit, you need to close less loans in the month. If the customer benefits, you have to work harder and close more. If you benefit, your investors will like doing business with you and you can typically receive better yield spread or rates. If the customer benefits, you have to impress the investor with volume to hedge the less favorable yield spread. As you can tell, the tug-o-war of benefit is an ongoing issue. Many brokers and originators have a difficult time with the ethical issues of drawing the line of benefit to favor both themselves and the customers. The happy compromise is typically a very thin line that requires balance of a Cirque Du Soleil performer to walk it. Bottom line, the benefit should go to the customer. If you are in this business for the long haul, build a reputation now as the mortgage banker who gives good deals. Be the one who clients will refer. Build a lasting relationship based on ethical standards and quality customer service. I have written many articles on tips to provide the customer with a pleasant experience mostly based on personal interaction and amiable service. I have never talked about the monetary aspect of the business. I do not preach how to make a profit or which lender offers the best yield spread, quickest underwrite time, or lowest interest rate. Those are aspects of the industry that you can ascertain as part of your “OJT” and through

the rigor of diligent ‘lender-shopping.’ These are easily learned and easily executed procedures. However, good loans are fewer and fewer and making a healthy living on a third or a quarter of the typical business of three years ago is now the reality. One must maximize each deal just to pay the bills! Benefit, as I have written about in an article entitled “The Formula,” (May 2008 Tip of the Month) I define as anything the customer receives in an exchange as a result of the cost of doing business. The customer’s perceived benefit in the transaction is value. If there is no benefit, there is no value. Perhaps, the customer’s greatest perceived value is the benefit you offer of the lowest interest rates and the lowest closing costs. It may also be the friendliest service, frequent contact, or the fact you remembered the family pet’s name. I would be presumptuous to say that money is not the most important aspect of most mortgage transactions today. Everyone who wants a mortgage wants a good deal. The conundrum becomes the level of benefit that you offer and the level of value the customer perceives and is the two balanced to the satisfaction of yourself and the client? There is no perfect science to this dilemma. In fact, you may make some poor decisions and lose some deals as a result of the lack of benefit offered or executed. The interest rate may be too high, the closing costs are exorbitant, or you may not have called the customer frequently enough. So here is my tip to hedge future situations: Talk with authenticity about the expectations of the loan process, the fees and the interest rate, to your prospects during the initial conversation. Set the standard from the beginning. Cover

the two major aspects of benefit: cost of doing business, and the business of doing service. The customer will not only respect you for your candor, but will be relieved and feel secure that you are providing quality service during a time when the mortgage industry is highly scrutinized. Everyone is feeling a financial squeeze regardless of the profession they pursue. Unemployment, gas prices, food cost and heat for the house are all some of the issues weighing down on every home owner or potential home owner. How refreshing would it be to have “the mortgage guy (gal)” be the straight talker when we are bombarded with political smear ads, campaign propaganda and news about Wall Street executives’ golden parachutes and their collapsed businesses? Be the shining beacon of ethical business practices, authentic customer service, and quality value-added propositions in a current realm of uncertainty, fear, and financial collapse. Yes, you may not make as much as you had hoped on the recent closing, but the client was happy and that was the compromise necessary to get to the closing table. We all have felt the ‘pinch’ and had to check for coins in the sofa cushions just to eat lunch. But provide benefit to each customer and as the business becomes plentiful, you should be busy with repeat customers and referrals. Sometimes we take a cut in commission. I suggest not to cut benefit to the customer. Remember, this is a marathon, not a sprint. Stewart Mednick is a seasoned mortgage banker and published author.
