Mortgage Lending

Oregon Revised Statute 86A

Mortgage bankers lend money to fund loans secured by interests in real estate and they either sell or service the loans. Mortgage brokers sell real estate paper for themselves or for others or accept funds from others to invest in real estate paper. Mortgage brokers also make or negotiate mortgage loans. The mortgage lender license permits a company to act as a mortgage banker, mortgage broker or both.

As of December 31, 2013, there were 576 licensed mortgage lenders with 1,556 licensed locations. There were 5,080 licensed loan originators.
