Mortgage Vendor News & Views

Making sense of the service provider market across the end-to-end mortgage ecosystem is a full-time job. There are at least 80 different kinds of vendor categories and thousands upon thousands of vendors within. Plus, they come and go, have affiliates, form joint ventures, merge, re-brand themselves and make other moves, making it as if some hungry beast was eating the bread crumb trail we continually plot out. It is easy to lose your bearings if not relentlessly paying attention.
