Strategic Data Analytics

Strategic Data Analytics

The wealth of information available on mortgage lending in today’s market provides a remarkable opportunity for data-driven strategic planning and decision-making for independent lenders – if they have the ability to see through the noise. With decades of experience in the industry, our mortgage experts are able to do just that: sort through the flood of data to identify only those key points that are most useful in helping you run your business and staying competitive.

HMDA Market Share Dashboard



Thanks to the Home Mortgage Disclosure Act (HMDA), comprehensive data on nearly 95% of all mortgage originations nationwide is made available to the public. But in its raw state, this data is cumbersome and difficult to navigate, requiring hours of time to scrub and manipulate this information in order to uncover relevant statistics and trends that can be used by lenders.

The mortgage professionals at Richey May have done this work for you, organizing the raw data into a dynamic, tailored dashboard that allows lenders to drill down on specific markets and uncover key statistics to help aid strategic decision-making. Trying to measure the effectiveness of your sales efforts? Looking to enter into new markets, but not sure which align with your strategic goals? Seeking out M&A partners that compliment both your current footprint and future growth goals? Need to better understand your current marketplace and how your sales efforts should evolve with the changing landscape? With a few clicks, you can modify the dashboard to see only the data relevant to your business and the decisions you need to make to stay competitive.

For the coming year, we’re offering complimentary access to the latest 2015 data in the dashboard below.

Loan Origination Trends

The reporting & compliance requirements on today’s lenders may be a weighty administrative burden, but data collection tied to compliance can also provide great insight into the industry and its trends. On a quarterly basis, the Nationwide Mortgage Licensing System (NMLS) releases the raw origination data by product and purpose on a state level, free of charge to the public. The mortgage specialists at Richey May summarize this raw data, providing the resulting report at no cost to our valued clients and friends in the industry.
