In an ever-evolving industry like the reverse mortgage market, it pays to be informed on the latest market trends.
New reverse mortgage rules have dramatically changed the way industry professionals do business in recent years, requiring them to discover new strategies to better serve the needs of today’s borrowers.
“If you look at the reverse mortgage industry over the last five years, it’s almost unrecognizable,” said Scott Norman, national field retail vice president at Finance of America Reverse, who will provide introductory welcoming remarks at this year’s Reverse Mortgage Day in Dallas.
Now in its sixteenth year, the annual event, which is hosted by the Texas Mortgage Bankers Association, will bring industry professionals from all over the country to the Lone Star State for a day of reverse mortgage networking, education and conversation.
At this year’s event, attendees will hear from industry leaders on various reverse mortgage topics, including presentations on servicing, HECM for Purchase, the broader housing economy and the view from Washington, D.C.
“We really want to focus on the originators and have a number of different speakers to provide as much information as we can to attendees,” Norman told RMD.
Last year, Reverse Mortgage Day hosted over 130 attendees representing 46 companies and 14 states, including loan officers, real estate attorneys, title companies and representatives from the Department of Housing and Urban Development.
Although the annual Reverse Mortgage Day gathering is primarily focused on originators, the event is not exclusive to these industry professionals.
“Anybody who touches the reverse mortgage space needs to look at the agenda and see if this is an event they would like to attend,” Norman said.
Reverse Mortgage Day 2016 is scheduled for Wednesday, September 7 at the Dallas Downtown Omni Hotel, with a welcome reception on Tuesday, September 6.
The cost of registration is $159 before August 15, and $209 thereafter. To register and learn more about the Reverse Mortgage Day event, click here.
