Inlanta Named Top 100 Mortgage Company

Top 100 Mortgage Company 2012

We are pleased to announce that Inlanta Mortgage was named to Mortgage Executive Magazine’s “Top 100 Mortgage Companies in America in 2012.”

Top 100 Mortgage Company Criteria

This comprehensive list is composed of the nation’s top 100 closely held mortgage companies and banks as ranked by their total yearly mortgage volume. In putting together the list, the magazine seeks to recognize and celebrate the service, dedication, and hard work that mortgage originators, managers and executives put into building their companies and serving their clients. This year Inlanta ranked at number 85, moving up 14 spots from the previous year.

“It’s an honor to be recognized by Mortgage Executive as a top mortgage company,” President Nicholas DelTorto said. “During this period of uncertainty in the industry, Inlanta has thrived and experienced its best year ever in 2012. We’ve got great people on our team and this ranking wouldn’t be possible without them. Our platform of high quality support services help our producers be the exceptional performers they are.”

Individual Loan Officers Recognized

In addition to being on the top mortgage company list, five Inlanta loan officers made the magazine’s top 1% of mortgage originators in America in 2012. Branch Manager Dennis DeGrave, Branch Manager Jim Snyder and Loan Officer Steve Kern, from the Pewaukee, Wis. branch made the list. Also listed were two loan officers from the Overland Park branch, Loan Officer Cindy Laffey and Loan Officer Tom Rosberg.

In order to be eligible for this list, originators had to have a total personal production of at least $30 million in 2012. The magazine compiled the list to recognize and celebrate the service, dedication and hard work that leading mortgage professionals put into serving their clients during the home loan process.

“2012 was another great year; I couldn’t have done it without a great processor, company and my peers to keep me motivated,” Branch Manager Dennis DeGrave said. “I expect to continue my personal growth in the coming years with the support of Inlanta Mortgage Inc.’s training opportunities such as the Mastermind 2013 conference.”

Inlanta Mortgage branch managers and recognized loan officers will celebrate their rankings at the Mastermind 2013 event in Las Vegas on June 5 and 6.

Home Prices, Home Sales and Foreclosures

Housing Market in Transition

In today’s MarketPulse newsletter from CoreLogic, the CEO says that this spring’s home buying season offers the brightest prospects for the housing market since 2006. With fewer foreclosed properties and declining shadow inventory comes solid gains in home prices and a reduction in the number of borrowers who are underwater. Our nation’s housing market is in transition as affordability of home ownership remains at very attractive levels.

Home Prices

Home prices increased by 9.7 percent in January 2013 compared to January 202. This represents the biggest increase since April of 2006. The five states with the highest home price appreciation include Arizona (+20.1 percent), Nevada (+17.4 percent), Idaho (+14.9 percent) California (+14.1 percent), and Hawaii (+14 percent).

Foreclosures

Nationally, the inventory of foreclosed home decreased 21 percent from a year ago. This is the largest year-over-year decrease in the last 12 years. Overall, the inventory of foreclosed homes is down 25.7 percent from its peak in January 2011. Since the beginning of the financial crisis in 2008, there have been approximately 4.2 million foreclosures in the United States.

Home Sales

Total home sales decreased 4 percent year-over-year in 2013 – but this combines the 16 percent decrease in new home sales and the 5 percent year-over-year increase in previously owned homes. Distressed sales accounted for 24 percent of all home sales in the United States in January of 2012. States with the highest share of distressed sales include Nevada, Michigan, California, Arizona, Georgia and Florida.
