We’ve got your game-changing solution!
We’ve all experienced the nail-biting anticipation that comes with major life purchases like a house or car—waiting for a decision can certainly be unsettling. And in homebuying and mortgage lending, the process can be particularly onerous. So, what are borrowers looking for when mortgage loan shopping? MeridianLink® has taken the initiative to shed light on this question through our nationwide survey of more than 1,000 Americans, uncovering consumer behaviors and expectations during the mortgage lending process. The results reveal some illuminating pain points that your borrowers are likely grappling with:
Mystery Surrounding the Mortgage Process: 22% confessed to being in the dark about the intricacies of the mortgage process, underscoring a considerable knowledge gap that borrowers encounter.
Lack of Mortgage Lending Support: Even more concerning, 41% disclosed that their primary financial institution offered no assistance or support, leaving borrowers to navigate this complex landscape on their own.
As a financial institution (FI) serving the needs of your community, we know you don’t want to disappoint borrowers and fall short on the desired experience, but it can be difficult to juggle evolving consumer expectations, market shifts, regulatory changes, and your day-to-day operation. Luckily, the digital innovation taking place in financial services empowers FIs like yours to drive positive transformation, shifting these challenges into opportunities.
