Research suggests that certain types of work are associated with an increased risk of people developing stress and exhaustion. Most brokers will confirm that the mortgage and financial brokerage industry generally requires long hours, time pressures, and juggling a variety of responsibilities. I have been a mortgage broker for more than 12 years and it has been a very rewarding career for me. Most of the important things have already been mentioned, but I wanted to add a few things.
First of all, I think that to be truly satisfied with your work you need to do something from start to finish. It's a great feeling when a young couple receives the keys to their first home, knowing that you started working with them to repair their credit 6 months earlier. You were there from start to finish, and studies have shown that this is important for being happy at work. Secondly, it's a very interesting aspect of this job that you don't really have any opponents once you start applying for a loan.
The buyers, the sellers, the agents, you and your team, your lender, your title, your insurance agent, everyone. Yes, their job is to make sure everything is accurate and honest, but they don't want to delete your file. I have always enjoyed that powerful and positive energy. By the way, my focus has always been on purchases and I enjoy them much more than refinancing.
They're much more stressful because of deadlines and the possibility of heartbreak, but they're much more satisfying. Burnout is a very serious problem in any area of life, but mortgage brokers seem to be more prone to it than some. This rate is much higher than the national average for all careers, making a job as a mortgage broker an excellent option for those interested in the field of finance. I have a good friend who left teaching to become a mortgage broker and do some business 10 years ago when things were going well.
The most recent condition now makes a mortgage broker personally responsible for certain losses due to a poor subscription. That depends on recent years and is proof, if necessary, that there is a very real challenge ahead within the industry to safeguard the health of the exhausted mortgage broker. FAST CEO Steve Kane says that the flow effects of recent economic and financial instability have made it very difficult for mortgage brokers to keep their heads above water.
