No one likes delivering bad news. As much we may agree with the adage “Don't kill the messenger,” the first thing we often want to do when we receive a message we don't like is take out our frustration on the person delivering it to us. In the mortgage industry, we run into this problem as much as anyone. More specifically, the loan originator often has to break news to potential borrowers that they may not like so much. How can LOs deliver potentially upsetting news without souring the relationship with the customer?

In any industry, there are basically two ways of beating the competition:
 
1.Offer a lower price than your competitors.
2.Offer something different than your competitors are offering.
 
In the mortgage industry, though, this can get tricky. Of course, you can offer better rates than competitors, but only marginally so. It's unlikely that most consumers really care that much about an ever so slightly lower rate (even though they may say differently). Besides, information is so open in the age of the Internet that there isn't much room left to move on rates anyway. And offering something different can be even more difficult, since we all offer more or less the same product: A mortgage. So, what is the mortgage organization to do in the 21st Century?

If you are reading this, chances are you are already in the mortgage industry? But, maybe not. Maybe you're looking for information to help you decide whether or not to give the mortgage business a shot. Or, maybe you're already in the business and you're trying to convince someone else to enter the industry. Regardless, the main question you want answered is the same main question you want answered for a great number of things: “What's in it for me?” Why should you join the mortgage industry?

As a leader in the mortgage industry, you've probably interviewed your fair share of job candidates. Chances are, you've played a major role in building the team you are currently managing. You know what to look for in a good candidate ... and what to stay away from in a bad one. In all likelihood, you've spent a great deal of time figuring out what makes a qualified employee. But have you ever thought about it from the other end of the spectrum? If your employees were interviewing candidates to lead them, what would they be looking for in a qualified leader?
