I guess they want their mortgages from China too....

*****************************************************
One in three U.S. consumers would consider a mortgage from retailer Wal-Mart and almost half would consider one from online payment provider PayPal, according to a financial services study to be released on Monday.

The results should be especially disconcerting for banks because the two companies don't even offer mortgages.

The study shows consumers are willing to try alternative lenders as borrowers focus on price, customer service and trust in their provider when selecting a mortgage, said Doug Hautop, lending practice lead at the Carlisle & Gallagher Consulting Group, which conducted the survey.

    why not? Chinese save more than Americans and they live below their means meaning they are much less likely to default.

    ok i misread. although i still don't see why Americans wouldn't want to buy mortgages from China when the government is already borrowing from China.

    They could cut out the middle man... China loans money to the U.S., U.S. gives money to the bank, bank loans money to you...

    Yea, should just go direct, from China to you, maybe even get a better rate...

    This article is apparenty based on 618 responses to an online survey. Really? If like most online polls, take results with a grain of salt.

    You seem to have some fundamental misunderstandings of what the flow chart of dollars thru an economy actually works.

    The only thing this survey tells us is that people don't give a rat's XXX who they get their mortgage through.

    This article is idiotic. Who cares who the mortgage company is? It's just going to get bundled and sold off. All that matters is the final cost...

    Maybe if they get the mortgage from Walmart, they can put the application fees on their EBT cards......

    I think that's the point: customers don't perceive that the conventional mortgage providers add any value, so they would rather take their business elsewhere where they at least get low prices.

    As long as they have an online payments setup.. and i can manage my payments entirely online reliably. And the costs are lower then the next guy...

    Sure, i'd refinance with Wal-Mart!
