Industry Tips

Prospective loan brokers should realize that successful
achievement and advancement depend on one's ability to obtain
loans for clients. Large earnings cannot be guaranteed, and
potential loan brokers should realistically evaluate their own
ability to do this type of work before making large investments
of time or money. Contact those already in this highly
competitive field to learn of their experience. Check with
local banks, savings and loan associations and other financial
institutions to determine if they will do business with a loan
broker. Check local and state requirements relating to the kind
of business to be conducted, including business regulation
departments and your state securities commission to determine if
there are any licensing requirements or restrictions. Some
states require licensing if you act as a mortgage broker or if
the loan is secured by real estate. Check with newspapers to
determine if they will accept loan broker ads.
