A Message from NAIHP President Marc Savitt, to All Mortgage Brokers, oOriginators and NAMB - 02/20/11 07:01 PM
I’m writing you today, not as President of NAIHP, but as a 30 year veteran of the mortgage brokerage industry. On Saturday afternoon (February 19th), NAMB released a video by GA Chair Mike Anderson, where he stated, “The time has come to take the next step.” He was speaking specifically about the Fed’s rule on originator compensation. While I’m glad NAMB has finally come to this realization and caught up to the rest of the industry, I’m concerned they’ve decided to go it alone. On three separate occasions since February of 2010, industry professionals approached both NAIHP and NAMB, about working (0 comments)
Do you Have a Safe Home Listing? - 02/19/11 02:29 PM
Is your home lsiting with a real estate agency that does not care about your safety? I don't mean that the agents are terrorists, I am talking about how safe they make your home. Most home in this country and especially Center City Philadelphia where I am domiciled, agents throw a lock box on your tailing that has a code. There are agents that I know that I don't even need to call because I know their lock box codes. Now, don't you think the bad guys can figure it out? How about the fact that these lockboxes can be smashed (2 comments)
The Perfect Mortgage - 02/11/11 06:06 PM
HUD and the White House came out today with ideas on what to do about the future of mortgages in America. They give a few different ideas going forward and place into thought the idea of FHA and a guarantee from the government on a loan with a private funding pool for reinsurance. Now, the report goes to Congress for the whole thing to become a wrestling match taking who knows how long. I applaud all the work that has been getting done, but let me reiterate what I have been saying for years as the solution to how government can be involved (2 comments)
I’m Sorry, You Closing is Cancelled Right Here at the Table - 02/03/11 03:54 PM
Just imagine everything looking like it was going smooth. You sold your listing of 9 months, worked out the short sale on the first with Bank O ‘Merica and a second with Bumble Bee Savings and Loan after going through 3 cell phones, 2 email accounts for because of space and a heart transplant. Your seller, the buyer and their agent were very cool throughout the entire debacle even though the selling agent’s car was towed and the buyer was lost in East Africa for three weeks. So, finally at the closing table. All of you sitting there, you have the (2 comments)
