I'm looking at different income options right now and reverse mortgage origination looks very interesting to me.
I've been talking to a few different companies but now I just have a big headache. The brokers say they are better. The banks say they are better. Then there is net braching. Sooo confusing. I used to do non conforming loans 10 years ago but the industry has changed a lot.
Ideally I would like to be a reverse mortgage specialist. If I do other types of loans fine. If not fine. The ability to orginiate in many states would be nice too as I'm internet saavy and plan to blog.
So far, I've applied at Live Well (still waiting), Financial Freedom (probably bankrupt soon), Wells Fargo (waiting). Met Life (said no). What other players should I be looking at?
I emailed some friends and a few mortgage brokers emailed back. Those guys seem a lot more interested in doing FHA than messing with reverse.
Also, what books or courses should I be looking at? I know Sue Haviland has a reverse mortgage success course for $1000. How good is it? Any other ones better?
