Throughout my real estate career, I have noticed that sometimes the hardest part is obtaining financing. There are many ways to finance a property and many requirements for the different loans. One way to gain experience in this area is being a mortgage loan originator.
In many states the requirements for being a mortgage loan originator are very little and in most cases no license is needed. To do this you would simply contact your local mortgage broker, and ask if they would consider hiring you for this position. In most cases they will hire you on a 1099 basis (independent contractor). The pay is negotiable; it is usually a percentage of what the broker makes. There is a list of things that you would have had to do, like obtain a loan application from a prospective client or contact the title company and set up a closing, to be able to receive compensation from the broker.
There are many things that you will learn about when being a loan originator. You will learn about government loans, investor loans, mortgage insurance and when it is needed. There is other information that is key to understand and that is the actual loan process. You will learn about the loan approval process and how someone gets pre approved and at what stage they are actually approved. You will learn about how the broker makes his money and gets paid for his work.
This is a fantastic way to gain extremely valuable experience, for free from a loan professional! So go and find you local phone book, open it up to the mortgage section and look for a company that catches your attention. Contact them tomorrow, and begin the process!
