Session A
Transitioning from the Refi Boom to Untapped Opportunities: Leveraging Commercial Mortgages for Residential Properties

While the pandemic has affected many aspects of the real estate industry and the refi boom is showing signs of slowing down, real estate investor activity and demand for single-family homes remains stronger than ever. Now is the time to expand your product offerings to cater to this segment of the market. Private lending continues to offer flexible, lucrative options for fix and flip, long-term rental and other real estate investing scenarios that don’t fit traditional guidelines.

RCN Capital Senior Business Development Coordinator, Stephen Ballard, will teach you how to:

  • Identify profitable solutions for some of your most commonly overlooked leads
  • Leverage fix & flip loans, long-term rental loans, and other private lending products to make more money now
  • Guide investors through the origination process so that you can develop and retain more business

Strengthen your business and set yourself up for long-term success. Don’t miss this session.

Make Your Next Move In Reverse

Your business likely flourished over the past year from record high equity, low interest rates, and motivated customers. But with the refi and purchase boom already declining and interest rates now on the rise, it is the ideal time to diversify your business by adding reverse mortgages to your lineup of products.

Reverse mortgages are no longer a niche market. With a broad selection of proprietary, non-QM loans, and traditional HECMs, you’ll be surprised how flexible these products can be for your customers and your business. And as the demand for reverse mortgages continues to soar, you, too, can tap into this burgeoning market and offer an array of reverse mortgage products that your older customers want and need while guaranteeing your revenue stream.

FAQ

How do I apply a promo code for my tickets?

If you have a promo code, there will be an option for you to put it in on the very last page before checkout. You must hit the button that says "Apply Promotion," which will complete your reservation if you have a free code. Please DO NOT put in your credit card information.

Can I register other people?

Yes, you can register up to 10 NMLS licensed originators. Please input every registrant's individual information, as we use this information to create the name badges and check in at registration on the day of the event.

Can I visit the exhibit hall if I am not registered?

Unfortunately, no. You must register to have access to any part of the show at any point.

Can I attend even if I don't have an NMLS number?

The show is primarily designed for NMLS licensees. Processors and underwriters may use their company NMLS number. Others without an NMLS number (or non-active NMLS licensees) may attend, but have to register as a paid non-exhibiting vendor. If you don't have an NMLS number but you don't think you are a vendor, please reach out to us. Show producers have the right to determine final eligibility.

I am a sponsor or exhibitor, where can I find the toolkit and exhibiting information?

The exhibitor information is sent to the email provided during the registration or purchase of a booth or sponsorship. Please check this email for information about access to our exhibitor toolkit. If you need this information resent, please email info@ambizmedia.com for assistance.

I registered for the show but not the continuing education class, can I still take it?

Unfortunately, we cannot add or modify an existing registration. Class space is limited and you must pre-register to allow us to get an accurate head count. We are often able to accommodate requests made on the day of the show because some registrants will cancel or otherwise not participate. But only pre-registered attendees are guaranteed access to the class.
