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.

    On the average broker’s to-do list, creditor insurance is usually near the bottom. But as brokers look for ways to boost their bottom line, ancillary products like creditor insurance are starting to look more appealing. Still, it’s often a tough sell and that’s coming from the industry itself. Overcoming these challenges is the first step say some brokers. On today's Big Story and Part I of our look at creditor insurance, we spoke to Kelly Price,of Mortgage Protection Plan, Ray McMillan, of Home Mortgage Consultants and Mauro Di Cosola of Dominion Lending Centres Mortgage Village. Price acknowledges that brokers feel selling creditor insurance is someone else’s job and that rings true for McMillan, who says in fact that “somebody else” is also sending them referrals. While apprehension can be a stumbling block for some brokers, it’s not insurmountable, says Di Cosola.

  • The Big Story: Vancouver's increasingly competitive market The Big Story: Vancouver's increasingly competitive market (views 12939)

    If they say there’s a Tim Horton’s on every street corner in Canada, in Vancouver you’re likely to find a mortgage broker right next door. Throw in the highest housing prices in the country, banks that are fighting tooth and nail on interest rates and falling originations and you have a recipe for disaster. Or do you? On today’s Big Story we spoke to Vancouver brokers Peter Kinch of Dominion Lending Centres-The Peter Kinch Mortgage Team and Trish Pigott of VERICO Primex Mortgages as well as Equity Trust Financial CEO Nick Kyprianou. Kinch feels it’s imperative that brokers resist the temptation to take the banks head-on, while Kyprianou says there has been too much fixation on the market’s high-end prices. Pigott, for one, thinks those brokers who offer value over rate will succeed in the face of increasing competition from the banks.
