As a mortgage professional, your business is greatly impacted by changes in mortgage rates. The MBSQuoteline blog keeps you on the cutting-edge of those changes. From a client relationship perspective, the implications are many. An unexpected increase in rates may cause clients to change their mind about a loan you are discussing, cause them to not qualify, result in dissatisfaction with you as their loan officer, or result in other problems. Or you may offer a rate and point quote to clients which they accept, only to find out prices have moved swiftly and suddenly, and those terms are no longer available from your lender. The MBSQuoteline blog helps to facilitate this.
On the other hand, an improvement in rates, if you know about it and communicate it to your client, can create a loyal client for life when they benefit from it by receiving a better price or a lower rate. In your clients’ eyes, you are the expert guiding them through the financing process, and you greatly increase your credibility with them if you are informed and help them make better decisions. This is not to be confused with “playing the market and simply hoping rates improve”.
