What Data Insights Do Mortgage Lenders Need Right Now?
The novel coronavirus outbreak has tested lenders’ ability to adapt to sudden, monumental change. Branch managers are grappling with an influx of record-high refi volume and lack of staff capacity all while transitioning to a remote business model. Instant data insights and concise communication are now more important than ever to keep employees connected, on track, and of course, motivated.
To absorb as much refi business as possible while keeping consumers happy, branch managers will need to go “back to basics” in their evaluation of operations and production data.
Here are three real-time data analytics branch managers can use to keep themselves out of the weeds and ensure the entire branch is on the same page.
1. Pull-Through and Fallout
Pull-through and fallout data are essential to helping branch managers identify where they are losing business, why it’s happening and what steps they can take to prevent future losses. Take, for instance, a common lender predicament in our current market: volume is high, but fallout has increased. A branch manager who’s satisfied to simply attribute unusually high fallout to an increased rate shopping market and wash their hands of it could be losing a large swath of good loans.
