The Mortgage Bankers Association has joined forces with several other organizations in the mortgage industry, creating a slew of new benefits for its members.
What’s the benefit? For the Mortgage Bankers Association, when it comes to forming partnerships, the more the merrier. MBA has teamed up with Fannie Mae, Capital Markets Cooperative, and The Mortgage Collaborative to provide several new benefits to member companies. They range from discounts on Desktop Underwriter fees to reduced seller/servicer application fees from Fannie Mae to reduced membership rates for those organizations.
Why it works for members: By joining with three industry leaders, MBA has broadened the tools, options, and opportunities available to members, whether they’re interested in financial, educational, or business-related assistance. “MBA is proud to be partnering with key industry organizations to bring our members first-class benefits and services,” President and CEO David H. Stevens said in a statement. “MBA members will benefit from the array of cost savings, products, and services offered by our new partners.”
Other perks: Along with the slew of new partnership benefits, MBA members will continue to enjoy their preexisting perks, which include access to exclusive forecasts, research, an online membership directory, and networking groups.
