How much does a residential mortgage broker bond cost in Missouri?

According to section 443.849 of the Missouri Revised Statutes, the required amount of Missouri mortgage broker bonds should reflect the dollar amount of loans originated by the broker in the last year. Applicants for new licenses must post a minimum $50,000 bond. The required bond amount may increase annually. Applicants should verify their required bond amount with the state.

These bonds are subject to underwriting, and the price you’ll pay depends on your required bond amount and a review of your qualifications. Applicants with strong financial credentials could pay as little as 1% of the bond amount.
