The Mortgage Graveyard – Free Journal Chronicles Failed, Struggling Lenders
DALLAS, April 4 /PRNewswire/ Mortgage lenders that have failed, been acquired or are currently struggling are now chronicled at The Mortgage Graveyard, a newly-launched free journal from https://www.mortgagedaily.com.
Located online at http://www.MortgageGraveyard.com, the new journal is supported by nearly a decade of mortgage industry news archives written by a variety of reporters for MortgageDaily.com, the dominant source of online news for the mortgage industry.
“We’ve seen the secondary market for subprime mortgages disintegrate over the past six months — leading to an unprecedented number of company failures,” said Sam Garcia, creator of The Mortgage Graveyard. “Information about the companies — and the lessons to be learned from their failures — is now easily accessible for analysis by future mortgage executives, analysts and educators.”
Before becoming MortgageDaily.com’s publisher in 2000, Mr. Garcia worked in mortgage lending for 20 years. His mostly subprime wholesale career included stints at companies that have gone out of business or been acquired.
Lender failures dating back to 1999 are featured in one of four columns. Among the latest lenders to close were SouthStar Funding and LoanCity.
Another column features lenders that have been acquired since 1998. This year, ABN AMRO Mortgage Group and ResMAE are among notable acquisitions.
One column lists subprime mortgage bankers that are currently struggling, such as New Century Financial Corp. and Accredited Home.
Helping to keep things in perspective, a fourth column highlights recent mortgage company success stories, such as hundreds of ongoing job additions and record loan originations at Quicken Loans and new hirings at World Savings.
By clicking on any of the companies listed in The Mortgage Graveyard, users are directed to a chronological listing of search results of news stories for that company.
