A company that originates mortgages exclusively for resale in the secondary mortgage market.
Mortgage companies originate and service mortgages. In other words, they make loans to consumers. Mortgage companies then typically sell these loans to other lenders and investors.
Some mortgage companies may be subsidiaries of depository institutions or their holding companies but do not receive money from individual depositors.
