The future of private lending

According to New Haven Mortgage president and CEO and Mortgage Summit panelist David Vyner, the outlook for private lending may depend on proposed refinancing rules and their potential effect on home prices.

Video transcript below:

Mortgage Summit speaker, David Vyner discusses the outlook for private lenders.
 
David Vyner, President & CEO, New Haven Mortgage Corporation
David Vyner:  Well moving forward with the private lenders as we start seeing the tightening of the credit market, money markets and the fallout of the US, there’s been a, obviously there has been a change to the institutional lending where they have tightened up and with your self employed stated income features and it appears that it’s looking to get a little tighter CMHC starting to look at what the institutions will do.  
 
We are also hearing coming, which we will know soon on renewals, the banks, the institutions may have to re-underwrite that mortgage loan that’s coming up for maturity, for renewal rather and insofar as the borrowers, credit changing, history changing, job status that could result in a win-win perhaps or a lose-lose, it really depends which way we look at it.  We may have a whole onslaught of mortgages that are not being renewed, coming into the marketplace that may not be able to be renewed and a whole lot of housing stock coming out which may invariably shrink prices or value will come down maybe, if not slightly may plummet and oversupply in the marketplace.
 
On the flip side, from a private lender, the privates could step in and re-fi the mortgage, help the institution and help the borrower.  Now the question becomes, are we helping the borrower if the mortgage rate were to move from 3% to 8%.  Now we have probably another issue in affordability, which could cause some adverse conditions in the marketplace.  But going forward I believe there is still opportunity and there will always be opportunity for private lenders as the ship goes and the brokers that are dealing with private funds will keep going with the private funds and the brokers who do not have experience will gain experience and start move to the private lenders as well, so I believe.

    A broker names a non-bank lender and the client asks “what if they go out of business?” While brokers say a direct appeal by mono-lines to consumers would only strengthen industry credibility and counter negative perceptions about its lenders, the monolines say the idea has merit, but only if everyone in the channel gets on board with the plan.

    Is there such a thing as too much education? When it comes to the training of new agents and brokers some think that the 2 year apprenticeship before being licensed effectively raise the bar on qualifying standards. Not everyone is in agreement though. Isn’t the system in place good enough? Why are brokers asking for this change and isn’t there already accountability?

    What have you done for me lately? Increasingly, that’s the attitude of refi clients who expect lenders and by extension brokers to cover legal and appraisal fees. Are these expectations out of line? More and more bank branches don’t think so. Most brokers, however, think that incentives should be offered sparingly, on n a case-by-case basis.

  • The Big Story: The role of lender BDMs The Big Story: The role of lender BDMs (views 13026)

    Some lenders want to switch up the roles of those Business Development Managers and take them away from the role as go-between and dispute mediator and focus them on attracting new brokers. Brokers, though have their reservations. They say BDMs may be better left in that traditional relationship-building role.

  • The Big Story: Fewer brokers a good thing? The Big Story: Fewer brokers a good thing? (views 13528)

    Is having fewer mortgage brokers a good thing or a bad thing? With mandatory re-licensing education requirements now in effect in Ontario, fewer brokers is a distinct possibility. Some in the industry are predicting a loss of up to 15 per cent. Most of that will come from newer and part-time brokers.

    With economic uncertainty and increased competition from the banks squeezing mortgage brokers, what options are available, especially for brokers looking to get out of the business sooner rather than later?

  • The Big Story: Renewal fees The Big Story: Renewal fees (views 15744)

    Recent discussion around the issue of renewal fees has seen a proposal for an across-the-board 15 bps, an idea that is gaining traction on both sides. Lenders would dole it out whether the brokers take commissions straight up or opt for trailer fees. Either way, this mandatory renewal fee is proposed as a good way of eliminating a lot of the moving around that occurs at renewal. On today’s Big Story, we spoke to Ariel Santos of Unity Financial Mortgage Services, Drew Donaldson of Verico Safebridge Mortgage Solutions and John Bargis of Mortgage Edge.

    The latest weapon in the war between the Big Banks and mortgage brokers is Realtor incentives and the newest trick was one bank’s offer to Realtors of 50 bps for every referral that ended in a closed deal.
