Press Release (ePRNews.com) - Red Bank, NJ - May 31, 2017 - Vantage Production, LLC, a leading provider of CRM-powered sales and marketing automation solutions for the mortgage industry, released the results of its first annual Mortgage Industry Outlook Survey.
This inaugural report is based on the responses of 1,391 mortgage professionals who work at a variety of company types and sizes across the nation, including banks, independent mortgage companies and credit unions.
“The mortgage industry continues to evolve; it’s clear that the lenders who will thrive are those who meet and overcome the challenges presented, while profiting from the leverage that new technology innovations can provide.”
2017 marks a shift from a refinance to a purchase market, origination costs continue to climb, digital mortgages increase in importance, inventory continues to be low in some areas, and rates are in flux — just to name a few of the challenges facing the mortgage industry today.
The top three challenges cited by the survey respondents were: developing profitable partner relationships, effectively marketing to their database of prospects and past clients, and recruiting and retaining top talent. The growth of the digital mortgage and expansion of the consumer direct channel are two innovations that require the attention of lenders in order to fully maximize and optimize these opportunities.
“The mortgage industry continues to evolve; it’s clear that the lenders who will thrive are those who meet and overcome the challenges presented, while profiting from the leverage that new technology innovations can provide,” commented Todd Ballenger, Executive Vice President of Vantage Production. “Applying the right technology to automate their MLOs’ activity can be the game changer to achieve these goals. VIP’s automation of sales and marketing best practices is just such a solution.”
