Today: Ten Things Your Company Must Do in 2024

This webinar is part of MBA Education’s Garrett, McAuley & Co. Mortgage Banking Management Webinar Series.

Most of us didn’t expect 2023 to be worse than 2022, but the second half of 2023 may be the worst period for the industry — ever. Volumes are relatively low, pricing and gain on sale margins remain poor, staff layoffs never seem to achieve breakeven, and the vast majority of the industry continues to lose money. And yet…some companies are profitable on originations, and there are signs of hope in the industry.

Nightmares eventually end, and now is the right time to take steps to improve your business, before 2024 starts and while you can make a real difference. This popular webinar will provide participants with a new Top Ten list of strategic initiatives that all mortgage bankers should implement in 2024. These very specific and actionable suggestions will help you and your team focus on what will increase revenues, control costs, and better manage risk, not only in 2024 but also every year thereafter. They are all things you can start to work on right away.
