Ensuring Loan Quality in a Tight Market

Ensuring Loan Quality in a Tight Market

As a quality control expert with more than two decades of experience in the mortgage industry,  MetaSource Senior Vice President of Mortgage Services Mary Kladde has seen all the ways in which loan quality can fall short.

But while loan defect reporting is an important process, required of any lenders doing business with the government-sponsored enterprises (GSEs), Kladde would like to see a stronger focus on some of the root causes of loan defects – and ways to correct them earlier in the process.

“Lenders don’t always focus on the right place,” Kladde says.

The New Universal Residential Mortgage Application

Monday, August 07, 2017

Are You Ready for the New URLA?

New Universal Residential Mortgage Application

Starting January 2018, the newly redesigned uniform residential loan application (URLA) – also known as Fannie Mae Form 1003 – will have a cleaner look with more white space and a defined separation of borrower and lender information. It has also been updated so that it is compliant with the new Home Mortgage Disclosure Act (HMDA). However, the new Form 1003 has been specifically designed for electronic forms.

This is great if you've already switched over, but it can also cause information capture headaches for mortgage originators. That's where we come in.

Making the Transition Easy

MetaSource Mortgage can ease the information capture pain in two ways:

  1. We'll convert all your paper mortgage applications into electronic form
  2. We'll use document scanning and capture technology to automatically extract the vital information

This will not only make data capture quicker, but it will also assure more accuracy than manual data entry.

What If Your Mortgage QC Turn Time Was 35 Days?

What If Your Mortgage QC Turn Time Was 35 Days?

"Time is the coin of your life. It is the only coin you have, and only you can determine how it will be spent. Be careful lest you let other people spend it for you." – Carl Sandburg

We hear about mortgage file quality control (QC) turn times of 60-90 days from other QC outsourcing providers. Why does it take so long? It's usually because they're having trouble keeping up with volume, but it could be any number of reasons.

Long turn times put you in an uncomfortable position of being out of compliance with the agencies. If your vendor post closed review is at 60+ days, you have ZERO flexibility in any internal process and procedures. We've even seen many lenders recently receiving added scrutiny from HUD, as well as investors, due to unacceptable vendor time frames. 

What if your mortgage QC turn time was 35 days? What would you do with the extra time and lack of stress?

emortgage QC Audit Implications

Tuesday, June 07, 2016

emortgage Offering QC Audit Implications | MetaSource

Thanks to Quicken Loan's relentless advertising, including a Super Bowl ad, everyone seems to have heard of the "emortgage" and demand is rising as a result.

Ironically, the emortgage has been around for 15 years but has been slow to be adopted in this paper-intensive industry. However, just as how Microsoft's promotion of "The Cloud" in TV ads dramatically increased usage of the term and demand for this type of software, after many years of being referred to as software as a service (SaaS), the repeated promotion of the emortgage appears to have increased demand.

Is your organization ready to offer emortgages as well as to handle both pre-fund and post-close quality control (QC) requirements?
