A mortgage loan. Most people have to have one, but nobody looks forward to it. It's hard to understand all of the terms, and by the time customers pay all of the fees, they're left with nothing in their pocket. And worst of all, they always wonder whether they really did get the best deal.
Now there's another choice. A choice that will rebuild consumer trust in the mortgage lending industry. RateWindow™ is the first and best transparent loan pricing program—and it's setting a new standard in mortgage lending.
Why? Because with RateWindow™, customers get to know that they really will get the best deal - because they choose it themselves. They know up front what rates they qualify for, and how choosing a specific rate can benefit them. Are they looking for the lowest rate, even if it means they have to bring more money to the table? Or are they strapped for cash, and needing a little help towards closing costs?
RateWindow™ gives clients information at their fingertips that shows them how much money they will need pay—or or how much will be applied towards their closing costs—based upon the rate and term that they select. They access RateWindow™ through the websites of real estate agents, title companies and mortgage companies, then provide basic information, such as the anticipated loan amount. Within moments they will see the options that are available to them. And they'll learn how much of a Freebate™ they are eligible to receive-exclusively through RateWindow™.
With RateWindow™, customers save money by paying a reasonable fee to their mortgage broker that's disclosed clearly and up front. And costs like appraisals and title searches are passed directly through to them, with absolutely no broker mark-up. That way, there will be no surprises waiting at the closing table; just happy clients ready and willing to sign.
RateWindow™ provides customers the same information that is available to their loan officer in a simple, easy-to-understand format. It also meets all state and federal disclosure regulations to ensure that your clients have all of the information that they need to make the best decision. Borrowers can now feel secure in their loan choice and lenders and real estate professionals know that they're providing their clients honest, straightforward service that will keep them coming back.
