Reflecting that interest, one of May’s most viewed sponsored pieces was this executive conversation with John Keratsis of Deephaven Mortgage about navigating the shifting market with non-QM options.
Even if your company doesn’t offer non-QM, the central theme we’re seeing is that lenders are looking at new products in order to combat tightening profit margins. Further, this Lunch & Learn on appraisal modernization was our most attended event of May, and this white paper on a data-driven approach to mortgage from intelligence solution provider Teraverde was our highest performer last month. In short, if you can provide thought-leadership on how to profitably and efficiently navigate today’s market, you’ll go far.
