Start Your Own Mortgage Loan Processing Business
Are you looking to start a career as a mortgage loan processor? Have you considered hiring yourself instead of working for others? Did you know that all you need to start your own loan processing business is a mortgage loan originator license? Yes, that’s right. Even if you’re not thinking of starting your own business, the second and third sections of this course will show you how to process loans like a senior loan processor with practical examples which is incredibly valuable if you want to start working as a mortgage loan processor.
Starting your own mortgage loan processing company requires very little time and will allow you to start working with lenders and mortgage companies not as their employee, but as the owner of your own company. You will build relationships with different companies that will send you loans to process for them. By outsourcing the work to you, they save on loan processor salaries and will increase their profits. You can choose to work for them or to work with them as a partner. Some lenders even hire loan processing companies as preferred loan processors which is a huge benefit because you will receive loans to process on a consistent basis and will charge a fee for processing these loans.

- $900 x 20 (loans processed per month) x 12 (months in a year) = $216,000 or more in annual income on the high end
