The 7 Pound Loan

By
Mortgage and Lending with Mortgage Magic

We used to talk about big loans in terms of loan amount. One time I wrote an $8,000,000 first mortgage with a $500,000 second for the same client. Back as far as 1979 I wrote a $1,000,000 second mortgage loan. But today when I say I wrote I big loan, I either measure the loan or weigh it.

I just wrote my biggest loan. It is just over 7 pounds. I thought that was a record but when I mentioned the loan to a loan officer in my office; Tom Tran- he told me that he just wrote a 7 pound loan. For the record Tom's loan came in at 7.2 pounds and mine came in at 7.4. These are BIG loans.

 Here is a video clip of the loans http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qZir7G9xC5M

The loan files are definitely thicker these days.  We have self-employed borrower to thank for most of that.  Those tax returns can really take up space.

Doug: Do you think loans are going to get heavier or lighter in the future?
