Credit Unions and The Residential Mortgage Marketo Credit unions originated $56 billion in residential mortgage loans in the first 6 months of 2012. This represents about 1/3 of credit union total loan origination and less than 8% of all residential mortgage loans in the U.S. So there is opportunity for more growth!
Credit Unions and The Residential Mortgage Marketo Credit unions sell just over ½ of the mortgage loans on the secondary market. However, studies show that institutions which sell residential mortgage loans see greater income and profits with 257 basis point gains in Q2 2012.o MBA reports that profits on residential mortgage lending rose from $1,654 in Q1 2012 up to $2,152 in Q2 2012.o According to the American Customer Satisfaction Survey (ACSI) survey last year, members are more satisfied then ever before with credit unions, as the industry’s score soars 8.7% to 87 (on a scale of 0 to 100)—the highest score ever reached by any of ACSI’s 47 industries.o In just one year, credit unions have tripled their ACSI lead over banks.
Future Challenges in Mortgage Bankingo The industry is going through unprecedented changes with the ongoing implementation of Dodd-Frank and the establishment of CFPB and future GSE reform.o While CFPB does not have direct oversight over most credit unions, the credit union industry need to follow the rules established by the CFPB regarding financing.o TILA modifications (new APR calcs), RESPA reform (new documents), SAFE Act (licensing of originators), Risk Retention (limits on loan sales) all will require credit unions to have leading edge technology to stay compliant.
Summary on Mortgage Market Conditionso Forecasts and analysis show that real estate and residential financing is making a rebound.o Mortgage Banking is profitable when done properly.o Credit Unions have room to grow with greater consumer confidence and current low market share.o Regulatory change will present challenges that can be overcome with proper flexible and compliant technology.
What is Cloud Computing?o Cloud computing is Internet-based computing, whereby shared resources, software, and information are provided to computers and other devices on demand, like the electricity grid. In other words, Cloud computing refers to anything that involves delivering hosted services over the internet and encompasses any subscription-based or pay-by- use service that, in real time, extends IT’s existing capabilities.
What is Cloud Computing?o Cloud computing is where entire businesses and thousands of employees will run their computer tools as online rented products. All of the processing work and file saving will be done "in the cloud" of the Internet, and the users will plug into that cloud every day to do their computer work.
What is Cloud Computing?o The primary benefit of cloud computing is reduced cost for everyone involved. Software vendors do not have to spend thousands of hours supporting users over the phone... they would simply maintain and repair a single central copy of the product online. Conversely, users wouldnt have to shell out the large up-front costs of fully purchasing word processing, spreadsheet, or other end user products. Users would instead pay nominal rental fees to access the large central copy.
What Cloud Computing is Not?o Cloud computing is not your corporate data center. If you own the infrastructure. Its your network, your hardware, your infrastructure.o Cloud computing is not what you do at a datacenter that you contract with. Whether that be a colocation datacenter or a managed hosting datacenter. If you have to specify that hardware you want to use, if you direct the procurement activity, its not cloud computing. Thats either colocation or managed hosting - respectively.
Examples of Cloud Computing in Your Everyday Lifeo Email on the go – Google / Yahooo Local Data Storage - Data stored on your home or business computer suffers from many of the same restrictions as email and, as with email, the cloud offers a solution. Storing your MP3′s, video, photos and documents online instead of at home gives you the freedom to access them wherever you can find the means to get online.
Examples of Cloud Computing in Your Everyday Lifeo Collaboration - On occasion you may find yourself in need of the collaboration with your peers. Downloading files onto flash memory, emailing documents to friends or family or colleagues is inefficient and time consuming. Last year Google launched a service that allowed groups of people to work on the same document, idea or proposal in real time or whenever convenient to each participant.o Mobility is the new internet – Books, Music and Wallet are becoming software
