Every so often here in The Weekly Collaborative, we like to take a whirlwind around the world wide web, highlighting some of our favorite industry websites and links to relevant content ...
Let’s start with more reaction to the PHH/CFPB ruling. The two best links for analysis I’ve found are Dave Lykken’s interview of attorney Mitch Kider (who worked on the case) and Diehl & Associate’s Scott Weghorst’s thoughts on what it means for the industry.
Best current websites for daily news updates on our industry for my money are Housing Wire, Mortgage News Daily, and Mortgage Daily. Those three sites, MBA NewsLink, and Rob Chrisman’s daily email - and you’re not going to miss anything in this business.
Strangely, outside of some of the great blogs maintained by lenders and industry service providers, there are next to no good truly indepenent blogs or bloggers for the mortgage industry anymore. On exception is The Truth About Mortgage and they recently published a list of the top 40 residential lenders in America in 2015.
This election, you have to laugh (to keep from crying), and if you like to laugh - this spoof video of a Hillary Clinton/Ken Bone dance-off is one of the funnier election related internet productions of the fall. No truth to the rumors that the Cleveland Browns have signed Ken Bone to play quarterback for them though.
With much of the industry headed to Boston for the MBA Annual this weekend, here’s a great list of some off-the-radar things to do in Beantown if you have any down time.
Remember The Mortgage Implode-O-Meter? It’s still around! But (thankfully) with far fewer updates these days.
And finally - my Cleveland Indians!! Anyone that knows me knows that I have been on Cloud Nine these past few weeks and was crying sweet tears of joy last night. Game one of the World Series is next Tuesday night, and starts about an hour after the conclusion of TMC’s reception at McGreevy’s in Boston. We’re getting the Cleveland contingent together for a little watch party! Let us know if you’re interested! Enjoy the off-season Bautista! GO TRIBE!
