Here’s how we’ve been ahead of the tech curve in the mortgage industry.
Like pretty much every industry in this country, the mortgage industry has changed as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic. What will a post-pandemic mortgage industry look like?
The first big change is that people aren’t able to walk into a bank or lender’s office and ask for a loan or refinance anymore. You need to make an appointment first. The good thing about our team is that we’ve always been a tech-based brokerage ahead of the digital curve. We’ve been having clients schedule their appointments online for years, so we are specialists in remotely lending. Everything we do is web-based; nothing needs to be printed, and we can communicate directly on the computer.
What happens when you have to sign documents? As long as they’re not the final documents that need a notary, everything can be signed electronically. That makes the process not only safer, but also more convenient.
Throughout the process, basically everything gets done electronically. There’s no need for you to always work with a local lender because that in-person interaction isn’t necessary. However, if you are like me and like talking to a person and being able to look them in the eye, we can hold Zoom meetings where we will break everything down and share our screen to go over the documents one by one.
The bottom line is that lending has never been better, more convenient, or more user-friendly. If you have any mortgage-related questions for me or needs I can assist with, don’t hesitate to reach out via phone or email today. I look forward to hearing from you.
