As part of the preparation for our Summer Lender Member Conference we recently surveyed our lender members on what is most top of mind for them right now, and what they want to see addressed on the agenda in Denver this August.
Three topics stood far above the rest in the feedback we received.
- Emerging Mortgage Technology
- Improving Operational Efficiency
- Creative Expansion & Growth Strategies
Our lender members are all focused on becoming more efficient, adding scale, and trying to make sense of the emerging technology in this industry. At a time when the intense regulatory climate leaves them with less time than ever to focus on playing offense instead of defense.
We also had our first monthly Lender Member Technology & Innovation Networking Call yesterday afternoon. We hit on many topics, but spent the most time talking about a truly paperless e-closing process as well as online consumer-direct mortgage application/pre-qual products that pull in borrower information real time through integrations. These are two products most of our lenders are looking at and assessing, but not yet currently using.
