Building from the ground up (pun intended), we cover the most essential elements of the residential real estate and mortgage business (e.g., the important players, segments of the business key terminology that you need to know) and then jump right into unpackaging the consumer buying cycle and examine the lifecycle of a residential mortgage from origination and underwriting through to syndication and distribution. We spend time examining what goes into originating, servicing, and valuing a mortgage by examining the metrics that make up the loan process. We also examine the tools that help a financial institution or mortgage underwriting business make a sound creditworthiness decision, by exploring the credit report and the real estate appraisal. Finally, we demystify the mortgage securitization process so that you understand how a simple real estate loan is bundled with others to become security which the underwriting organization can then package and resell into the market to recycle its capital.
This course contains nearly 30 modules in 3 sections and is structured so you have a clear awareness of how residential mortgages work in the real world:
