- LoanDepot is not your average lender. They have a proprietay end-to-end digital lending platform, mello, that has now just integrated Fannie Mae's, Day 1 Certainty, into its application process. I don't think LoanDepot is worried about recruitment...
- Two mortgage industry vets, Molly Dowdy & Jeri Yoshida, co-founded the only mortgage tech conference for women, NEXT, coming January 18 & 19. "It's definitely not your father's mortgage conference."
President Trump has announced his nomination of Jerome Powell as the next chairman of the Federal Reserve. That's a huge responsibility and it's not remotely suprising that some think the nomination is a good choice, while others don't.
- As lenders and vendors have been piecing together a provisional digital mortgage, Fannie Mae rolls in to make a statement. Fannie Mae believes it is now technically possible to be a fully tech-driven industry: to fully digitize the mortgage process. What'll it take? 2 years? 5 years?
- From Ken's most recent Wednesday Update we learned that the FHFA has decided to add a preferred language question to the Uniform Residential Loan Application (URLA).
