Or are you stuck by the side of the road as others pass by? It’s time to stop doing the same thing… and getting the same results. The obstacles that face mortgage servicers continue to ebb and flow into 2023 with rising interest rates, increasing MSR sales, and worries of delinquency as inflation and unemployment numbers climb. Servicers can expect to grapple with the onslaught of last year’s originations, tackling loss mitigation as lack of affordability meets recession, including impaired working capital and profitability. Although dealing with a roller coaster of hurdles is not new for mortgage servicing, how we overcome obstacles is different. The question remains, are you stuck in the past?
There’s no doubt that we are a resilient industry. However, the leaders in mortgage servicing are now the true innovators. These are the entities that have been fearless in their efforts to embrace technology, encompassing artificial intelligence, software-as-a-service, 24/7 self-serve access from any device, sophisticated real-time decisioning, and complex workflow automation. All of which work together to create a single Seamless Servicing engagement. With this approach to business, a servicer is then ready to take on whatever this year doles out.
Where are the Opportunities?
With obstacles also come opportunities, and this year presents multiple possibilities, especially when it comes to products. As purchase business expands and refinances contract, aggressive lenders have already started reigniting interest in adjustable-rate mortgages, home equity products, and buydowns. Building better borrower/servicer relationships becomes key on the back end and involves creating meaningful experiences right from the start. Are your onboarding systems ready for these new products – not old school ready but current readiness? Are you embracing current velocity with bulk delivery or desperately trying to map changing data fields?
Onboarding is your first chance to make a lasting impression. The key is to couple data synchronization with instantaneous exception processing accessible through a dynamic dashboard. Add on superior no-touch, mobile customer service technology, and you’re in business. CLARIFIRE®’s modern workflow, coupled with CLARIFIRE CALCULATOR® and CLARIFIRE COMMUNITY®, deliver a seamless flow from onboarding throughout the servicing lifecycle.
What's on the Agenda?
There’s a lot going on in mortgage servicing this year, and it’s only February. The Consumer Financial Protection Bureau just released updated Mortgage Servicing Examination Procedures. This could easily necessitate a full look at your current processes. Imagine being able to identify where changes are needed on the spot. CLARIFIRE gives your businesspeople access to a best-in-class rules and decisioning engine. This means no use cases, code development, or waiting for IT resources, just results.
Leverage a new level of innovation and technical sophistication as your team addresses recent Fair Lending changes and follows current appraisal bias concerns, from the Federal Financial Institutions Examination Council’s Appraisal Subcommittee (ASC) hearing on appraisal bias to the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development’s announcement on their efforts in this area, including their Reconsideration of Value proposal. Your team can be confidently ready to incorporate any or all updates as they become relevant to your organization.
Are You a Game Changer?
