December 3rd, 2014 - Don’t Let Your Client’s Lose Power Again!

As we are acutely aware, the winter and all that it brings us in New England, is fast approaching. Over the long Thanksgiving Holiday, there were major power outages throughout New Hampshire, Maine and even a small part of Massachusetts. I have heard a few stories of raw turkeys and unbaked pies. That’s just not right.

As many of you know from your loan officers or the CE course on Renovation Lending, mortgages for homes in need of repairs or desired renovations are available from Regency. But although we all think about using renovation lending to cure property issues or to add new kitchens, baths, decks, septic systems and roofs, you can also install permanent standby generator systems with a renovation loan.

I saw several ads this weekend for generator systems, so that must mean we are getting into the season where a power failure can cause heat to go down along with lights, cooking and the most important of necessities, TV and internet access. Homes with well water and pumps cannot flush toilets or run the water. Generator system can solve all these issues.

To qualify for a renovation loan that includes a generator feature it must be a permanent part of the real estate. That means that the generator and electrical connections stay with the home when the new owners sell it down the road. Typically, that requires the wiring be done through the main breaker box of the house. Also, the generator itself must be in a permanent location; e.g. a concrete pad. So that eliminates many of those wheel based generators which are kept in a shed or garage and pulled out when power goes down. The generator needs a permanent home and preferably needs to be bolted to its base. All fuels are permitted as long as they meet the local codes.

So when a home buyer asks you about auxiliary power options for the new home they are buying, you can advise them of the renovation loan option that can cover it.

Stay warm this winter and remember……Renovation – Regency.

September 19th, 2014 - RPM Mortgage Inc. Acquires New England-based Regency Mortgage Corp.

 Bay Area-Based Private Mortgage Lender Expands to East Coast

 ALAMO, Calif. – September 19, 2014 RPM Mortgage Inc. (RPM), a leading private mortgage lender, today announced that it has acquired Regency Mortgage Corporation, a fast-growing, 14-branch private mortgage lender with operations in New Hampshire, Maine, Massachusetts, Vermont, and Florida.

The Regency acquisition expands RPM’s regional footprint to the East Coast. RPM’s strength and stability will provide Regency loan originators with access to a larger menu of loan products, in addition to robust technology and compliance support.  The combination of the two independent lenders will provide both RPM and Regency loan originators with attractive pricing options for their customers. In 2013 RPM funded $5.9 billion and Regency funded $505 million in residential home loans. Regency will continue to operate under its current brand and its operations will remain local.

RPM CEO Rob Hirt comments on the acquisition. “Higher compliance costs are an unfortunate reality of today’s mortgage lending environment. This creates a challenge for independent mortgage lenders to remain price-competitive and provide quality loan products. The combination of RPM and Regency will enable us to service our respective markets and provide the best possible loans for our customers,” said Hirt.  “Regency is a natural fit for the RPM family, and we look forward to helping homeowners on both the East and West Coasts to meet their financial and real estate goals.”

Other similarities of the two independent lenders include the fact that they are both led by their founders. RPM is owned and operated by founders Rob and Tracey Hirt, and Regency is owned and operated by founders Quentin Keefe and Maureen Lemay. Keefe and Lemay will continue in their present positions.

Both organizations place a high level of priority on their employees and their company cultures. Quentin Keefe, CEO of Regency said, “RPM believes as we do, that if you hire great people and create an environment that empowers and respects them, good things will follow. RPM’s financial strength will afford us the opportunity to continue to grow our brand throughout New England and provide a quality place of employment for our employees.”

Regency Mortgage Corporation was founded in February 1996 and is headquartered in Hooksett, New Hampshire.  Business New Hampshire Magazine named Regency as the third fastest growing company in 2014. Regency offers a particularly vast array of mortgage products including conventional loans, jumbo loans, FHA, VA and RD (Rural Development) financing, rehabilitation loans, construction loans and portfolio loans.

To continue on this growth trajectory, RPM’s primary strategy is to continue to seek out like-minded, retail only, independent mortgage companies where they feel that they can best serve homeowners, such as the Northeast, Southeast, Texas and Chicago.
