Supercharge Your Loan Application Process with an
Automated Mortgage Client Portal
  • It's getting harder to meet the expectations of
    modern borrowers. 
  • For starters, todays mortgage customers want
    their loans to be processed much faster. For
    example, according to the Federal Reserve Bank of
    New York, the average loan processing time has
    decreased by 10 days since 2010, and keeps
    getting shorter.
  • At the same time, borrowers want an entirely
    online loan application experience with as little
    hassle as possible. In fact, research also shows
    that some 66 of homebuyers want a fully digital
    mortgage process, while 50 of borrowers chose
    their lender based on whether or not they had an
    online application portal.
  • And as the demand for faster loan processing
    grows, the bar for customer satisfaction is also
    rising. According to the 2019 Ellie Mae
    Borrowers survey, millennials are 6X more likely
    than previous generations to feel that their
    lender didnt reach out enough.

professionals to scale toward higher volume and
bigger clientele simply by meeting clients where
they are.  But another reason client portals
