2 The Bigger Picture We're thinking long-term in this month's issue of DS News, which covers a broad range of big-picture topics that span all sectors of our industry. Take our cover story, for example. In "Start-Up Schooling," Brian A. Lee sits down with a litany of experienced startup founders and executives to pick their brains on strategy, success, and everything that got them to where they are today. It's an intriguing piece that offers valuable lessons to all professionals—whether they're in the housing industry or not. In "Common Side Effects Include," Joe Melendez, Founder and CEO of ValueInsured, tackles credit risk transfers, the ever-increasing popularity of front-end transfers, and how both are changing and impacting the industry for the long haul. e most important side effect? CRTs, he says, promote the ultimate homeownership trifecta: affordability, fairness, and flexibility. Next up is "Inconsistency in the Courts," in which Dykema attorneys Lukas Sosnicki and Madeleine Lee address the recent discrepancies in how courts have applied the Supreme Court's Spokeo v Robins ruling—particularly in regards to RESPA and FDCPA. e foggy interpretations of the court's decision are leaving many loan servicers and litigators in limbo, they say. In "e Trillion Dollar Consolidation of SFR," Greg Rand, CEO of OwnAmerica, talks single-family rentals—specifically, how the SFR market can follow the same path to institutionalization as the multi-family market did years ago. e key to making that happen? Rand says it's gaining support from the distressed servicing industry. Last, but definitely not least, is our Loss Mit Tech and Services Guide, which reveals the nation's top loss mitigation providers—a bevy of talented professionals all dedicated to minimizing losses for lenders, investors, and homeowners alike. It's an issue filled to the brim with insightful, forward-thinking pieces that I hope inform, intrigue, and encourage you.
