Discussion 3 (Respond to this classmate’s post / 100 words):
Penny Mac Broker Direct provides a “range of innovative solutions to help brokers grow their business”. They offer wholesale mortgage products and programs for conventional, FHA and VHA loans with quick turn times. As a broker, I would want to know about this website because it offers some appealing features.
· Perfect rate – tailor rates down to .001% on fixed rate loans;
· Perfect term – customize terms down to the month;
· Optimize – this technology allows for the most competitive pricing, searches on best LPMI and BPMI options (lender paid and borrower paid mortgage insurance);
· Net escrows – escrows are netted from the final payoff, so less cash is needed to close.
I was impressed Penny Mac because of the employee page on Culture at the organization. It looks like a great place to work!
