ABSTRACT
This article presents information related to changes in the mortgage industry. A great many of these changes have to do with an increasingly global view of the industry. Another trend reshaping the industry has been the move to centralize more processes within national servicing operations and their service providers. This has given rise to a growing interrelation between different sectors and interests within mortgage servicing. One important change which analysts see beginning to materialize has to do with the relationship between the foreclosure process and real estate-owned disposition.
