We always talk about technology vendors innovating, but lenders are innovating, as well. For Example. American Financial Resources, Inc., an approved Fannie Mae, Ginnie Mae and Freddie Mac seller/servicer, the leading sponsored originator for FHA 203k loans and one of the nation’s leading independent mortgage originators, has launched MyLoanCenter, a new B2B technology solution to streamline and improve the way brokers communicate with their customers.
MyLoanCenter is a free, mobile-optimized, white-label platform that facilitates real-time communication between the broker, borrower and lender, as well as effective monitoring of the loan at every stage of the process. It can help brokers better manage their client relationships and keep track of important transactions, while empowering the borrower by allowing them to remain constantly apprised of their loan status.
The platform offers a range of innovative features, which include:
>> Admin Control – highly customizable settings that allow brokers to apply personal branding to the platform interface, create and manage internal teams, edit branch permissions and more
>> Loan Pipeline and Pipeline Management – enables brokers to view and sort their existing loan pipeline, register new loans, access pricing, order appraisals and conduct a loan estimate review expeditiously
>> Loan Feed – provides brokers and borrowers alike with the opportunity to view real-time updates pertaining to the status of their loan, and any outstanding action items
>> Newsroom – helps users to remain abreast of pertinent news regarding regulatory updates, industry news and updates to the platform
>> Data Sync – MyLoanCenter enables instant upload of necessary client and broker documents
