You determine the pace you want to follow, such as daily or weekly. Sessions can be telephonic, Facetime, Google Meet, Microsoft Teams, Zoom or Skype, but recording is not permitted.
The 10-session* boot camp will cover:
- Your Mortgage Company. In this segment of mortgage lending training, Dennis will cover entity structures, licensing, DRE online registration, advertising, loan officer requirements, capitalization, DBAs (FBNs), banking and other nuts and bolts of owning a mortgage company.
- Defining Your Products. In this session, he will help you define the types of loans you will offer, including the competitive landscape, current rates, and consumer vs business credit.
- Landing the Deal. Dennis will walk you step by step through the loan origination process, including the questions to ask to avoid wasting time, creating a letter of intent (template provided), loan applications, clarifying agency, and early borrower disclosures.
- Underwriting the Deal. Before you present this loan to investors, you must know it is solid. He will walk you through the process of opening a title order, engaging an appraiser, using quick valuation tools, list of docs to ask the borrower for, the role of credit reports, background checks, and recognizing identity theft.
- The Private Investor Process – Getting the Money. Obtaining private investors, the Loan Summary (template provided), the private investor disclosure process, obtaining a “spread” in the deal, servicing retained vs released, the sale and servicing agreement (templates provided). Dennis will walk through a list of disclosures (hyperlinks or templates provided) so you understand the role of each. We will also discuss the handling of investor money for the loan and the lawful sequence you must follow to do it correctly.
- Documenting the Loan from the Borrower Side. Here, he will discuss documentation alternatives, such as a loan doc service vs in-house vs attorney-closed, what documents your package should contain (list provided), guarantees, role of environmental guarantees and how to protect yourself from forgery claims. Dennis will go through an actual set of loan docs to discuss how and why they are used in loan transactions.
- Fractionalizing a Loan. Some loans require the use of multiple investors. He will cover your alternatives, including the multi-lender rule, Corp. Code 25102(f), and SEC Rule 506, as well as your DRE reporting responsibilities once you start fractionalizing loans.
- Analyzing Title. Dennis will walk you through a preliminary report from a title company and discuss what to look for, endorsements, exclusions, and other title-related issues.
- Closing and Booking the Loan for Servicing. He will go through the final closing process and what you are expected to do to finish the deal. Then, Dennis will shift to boarding the loan with a servicer and your role as the loan is being collected.
- DRE Reporting. In this final chapter, he will take you through your filing and reporting responsibilities with the DRE.
*Each session is 30-60 minutes
