Changes to Continuing Education in the Mortgage Industry

Mortgage rates are at historic lows and have been averaging below 4% for a 30 year fixed loan, for many months, helping to push the housing market back on track. Now is a great time for families and individuals to get into a new home, to sell their existing home, or to become first-time home buyers. Just as the housing market has turned around, over the last few years, mortgage brokers have become even more important and valued partners in the process of purchasing a home.

The SAFE Act ensures that the majority of mortgage brokers are regulated to ensure compliance with banking and/or finance laws in each state and that each mortgage broker completes mortgage continuing education, annually, to stay current on any regulation changes or new provisions for the industry. While the regulations are strict, the profession continues to grow, be incredibly lucrative and is a very popular option for those looking toward the real estate industry for new positions.
