6. Mortgage Industry Hopes for Turnaround
- Monday, November 23, 2009
Last week saw the installation of new officers for the Memphis Mortgage Bankers Association, and last month saw further stabilization of local mortgage numbers.
Meribeth LaBarreare, senior loan officer at Magna Bank and outgoing MMBA president, said the past year has been a rocky one for the industry, but that her tenure as president was a positive experience – even calling it a “blast” – despite these crazy financial times.

8. Q2 Mortgages Up 34 Percent
- Tuesday, July 14, 2009
The mortgage industry is yet another group that viewed the second quarter numbers with some ambivalence. The period (April through June) was highlighted by slight improvements from the previous quarter but well off the mark from the same quarter the previous two years.
9. Mortgage Sector Tows the Line in June
- Monday, July 13, 2009
Like other real estate and financial services sectors, the mortgage industry received some bad news and some good news in June: Activity improved from the previous month, but still fell short of last year’s total.
10. Q1 Mortgage Numbers So Predictable
- Tuesday, April 14, 2009
With home sales continuing their dramatic decline, it stands to reason that mortgage activity would mirror the sales slump and register its own set of disappointing numbers.
That logic certainly prevailed in the first quarter of 2009, which saw a significant dropoff in residential mortgages, according to the latest data from real estate information company Chandler Reports, www.chandlerreports.com.
11. Mortgage Bankers Aflutter Over Refi Boom
- Thursday, January 15, 2009
The new year brought new hope for the embattled mortgage industry, but it also brought a continuation of low interest rates, which has spurred a refinancing boom unlike any in recent memory in Memphis and elsewhere.
12. FHA Loans Take Lion’s Share of Mortgage Activity
- Friday, December 26, 2008
As the mortgage industry closes the book on an abysmal year, it can thank the Federal Housing Administration for being one of the few bright spots of 2008.
Through Oct. 31, home loans insured by FHA in Shelby County increased 226 percent – twice the national average – compared to last year. Also, they accounted for 28.9 percent of all mortgages as lenders reacted to the subprime fallout of 2007-2008.
13. Mortgage Activity Down 35 Percent in Q3
- Tuesday, October 14, 2008
Of all the industries affected by the economic downturn – and there are many – the mortgage business has perhaps taken the biggest hit.
Banks and mortgage companies are reeling from a perfect storm of housing crisis, credit crunch and dwindling consumer confidence, and the numbers prove it with each monthly or quarterly cycle.
14. Mortgages Decline 40 Percent In August
- Monday, September 8, 2008
“New normal” is how West Beibers, president of Delta Trust Mortgage Corp., describes the state of the mortgage industry right now. With residential lending still down and no signs of improvement anywhere in sight because of tightened lending guidelines, it appears to be an apt description.
15. Q2 Mortgage Filings Down 31%
- Tuesday, July 15, 2008
As the U.S. prepares for a presidential election and looks forward to the Olympics in China, the year strikes an uncanny resemblance to 1988, when George H.W. Bush won the White House and Seoul, South Korea, hosted the Summer Games.
16. FHA Loans Skyrocket in Shelby County
- Monday, June 9, 2008
As a result of tighter lending guidelines in the mortgage industry, home loans by the Federal Housing Administration (FHA) have skyrocketed in 2008, and their rapid rise could be a savior for the housing market.
17. Mortgage Bankers Set Sights On Breakthrough
- Monday, May 19, 2008
Though accounts vary as to the exact wording of the quotation, Mark Twain once purportedly told a reporter that news of his death had been greatly exaggerated.
For West Beibers, president of Delta Trust Mortgage Corp., the same sentiment is true of the mortgage industry. He pointed out that while critics chronicle the demise of banks and mortgage companies, the banks and mortgage companies continue taking applications and making home loans.
18. Despite Decline, 100 Percent Financing Can Be Found
- Monday, May 5, 2008
While most banks and mortgage companies have pretty much eliminated 100 percent financing for home loans, the product still exists. It just doesn't flourish like it once did.
Long gone are the days of no-documentation, no-money-down, stated-income loans that ultimately sent the housing industry reeling in 2007. In response to the subsequent subprime fallout and skyrocketing foreclosure rate, companies tightened their guidelines and removed many of the loan products that created those problems in the first place.

- Tuesday, January 15, 2008
