Big Changes were announced at the VA Lender Conference this year that relate to changes in the credit underwriting. If you do VA business this is a MUST read for your business!

Rule Synopsis:

The Veterans Administration (VA) held their 2018 lenders conference in April this year, and this year’s conference offered a bit more excitement than previous years. MortgageCurrentcy.com doesn’t typically report on any agency policies until they are officially released in writing through Circulars, Mortgagee Letters, Selling Guide Bulletins, etc., but we’re making an exception in this case. This year’s conference had VA personnel announcing a number of changes, additions and clarifications to Chapter 4 (Credit Underwriting) of the Lender’s Handbook (Pamphlet 26-7) that are to be published in June 2018 (a more specific date was not provided). VA stated that all of the announced changes could be utilized immediately.

Interpretive Comments:

Quick backstory: Unfortunately, VA does not update their Lender’s Handbook very often. According to their ‘Changes’ documentation on the Lender’s Handbook page, the last update took place in 2012. This requires both originators and underwriters to constantly refer to the Lender’s Handbook while subsequently checking all the VA Circulars for the last 6 years to be sure they aren’t missing a policy change in there somewhere. In VA’s defense, they rarely make significant underwriting policy changes.

Here’s what you will learn from this video:

New home construction is one of those concepts that real estate agents (and the general public for that matter) have trouble wrapping their heads around!

It can be especially daunting when agents represent a client who wants to build a new home.

They have to negotiate the contract with a builder, and yet they know very little about the process. In fact, the agent could be a “problem child” simply because they don’t know what goes into building a new home. The video includes how to set up the seminar, who to invite as speakers and an outline of what to present.

Your time is precious.

Your time is limited.

If you are going to spend time attending networking events to meet new real estate agents or referral partners, you may as well make the most of it.

Here are six tips to maximize your time and make quality connections.
