Wholesale is Part of the Solution … and Ready to Grow Again

John Walsh, via Mortgage Professional

The mortgage industry has dealt with sweeping changes over the past few years significantly impacting the mortgage broker and wholesale lending. As a result, the wholesale origination model has been largely redefined. Although many brokers and lenders have left the business, the wholesale channel now has a well-defined regulatory framework with higher-quality and better-skilled mortgage professionals to advise borrowers on their most important financial decision. This is why I believe the mortgage broker will thrive in the coming years.

I see a compelling future for wholesale lending, one that plays a vital role and guarantees that borrowers have access to the most competitive rates and an array of responsible program options. In the absence of wholesale, there is no doubt that consumer choice would be significantly reduced, as the mortgage marketplace would be dominated by a handful of large national lenders. The mortgage broker-to-consumer option helps guarantee healthy competition in the marketplace.
Additionally, mortgage brokers provide borrowers with access to a mortgage professional who will act as their partner, trusted advisor and advocate throughout the lending process. Mortgage brokers are knowledgeable about multiple products from various lenders and can help borrowers navigate the myriad of options to find the loan that is best suited to their needs.

Wholesale lending plays a critical role in ensuring that the mortgage industry does not become too heavily reliant on a select few large lenders, so that borrowers will continue to have plenty of mortgage options for any purchase or refinance transaction. In the coming years, mortgage brokers and lenders need to be committed to ethical behavior, responsible lending, ongoing training and the highest levels of customer service. Together, we must continue to improve, practice responsible lending, and advocate for this important channel and solution for borrowers.
