Work at Home Job Opportunities :: Legitimate Work From Home Jobs :: Work at Home Training
As mortgage brokerage firms continue to lay off "in-house" mortgage processors, the idea of working from home as a "contract processor" is becoming more and more appealing among stay-at-home moms. The challenge of course is HOW to acquire new business to start your work from home loan processing business. We at NAMP are here to assist you in many ways, including providing you with tips that can help you further your career as a mortgage processor.
If you're looking to work from home as a contract loan processor, you'll need to do a few things.
Get yourself incorporated! You do not want liability in any way. If the broker or borrower performs fraud, you do not want to get dragged into a lawsuit on a personal level.
Get yourself a website.... in addition to your member listing found on our website, you want to have your OWN website where you can send mortgage broker prospects to learn more about you and the services you would like to offer.
You will need agreements to sign with the brokers... so find a good attorney who can draft them up for you.
Probably the most important, you will need to market yourself. In this we mean be aggressive!
Join your local Chamber of Commerce.
Attend as many networking events as possible.
Send out direct mailer postcards to local brokers.
Cold call local brokerage firms and set up face-to-face meetings with them.
Read up on as many work-at-home job information websites as possible. Here are just a few of the websites that contain helpful information:
Work-at-Home Mom Magazine
Melody's Mommy Legitimate At Home Employment
There are also very legitimate work-at-home job opportunities such as the Work-at-Home Partner Program offered by:
Nationwide Loan Processing (http://www.LoanProcessor.org)
And lastly, you'll need software. There are many mortgage loan processing software companies out there. Here are just a few:
Ellie Mae Encompass
Calyx Point Software
Always keep in mind that there are legitimate and non-legitimate work at home job opportunities. You have to always be on the look out for scams as well as companies offering false promises.
We hope this helps you... best of luck from your friends at NAMP.
