- The mortgage industry by nature is cyclical. Volumes increase based on interest rate behavior and the typical reaction to these fluctuations is to add people. Brute force!
- The MBA at the end of 2013 stated the cost from Origination to Closing increased up to $6,368 per transaction with Lenders on average netting about $900 per closed file. The additional mandates from the Regulatory entities further push the cost higher and higher tomanufacture a loan through closing.
- With interest rates falling, loan volume increases dramatically resulting in additional personnel to be hired. The lenders are competing for the same personnel resulting in competition and higher wages. The low interest rates stabilize and then start to increase and the loan volumes dwindle. Personnel are laid off and the cycle starts all over again. There are so much calories burned in this cycle. The best organizations typically carry an extra 30% staffing level to be able to meet the demands of the market fluctuations.
Our typical customers are those that have put considerable money and mental energy in to cutting costs and improving operations; but their clients still aren't happy, the process is still not speedy, and their employees are disengaged.
They are working in too many disconnected systems with no end in sight.
Labor and talent issues, Affordable Care Act, contingent liability around unpaid overtime, time to train and ramp up new hires, emotional implications around laying off co-workers when volume wanes.
