Guide to Digital Mortgages

The mortgage industry has been talking about replacing its paper-dependent processes with digital ones for most of the last 20 years. But while online applications have become more common, true stem-to-stern digital mortgages are still a dream for most lenders.

The upside to offering a digital mortgage process is enormous: greater customer satisfaction, improved quality control, faster turn times, and enhanced loan originator productivity, among other pluses.

But the barriers to implementation are not small either. The process is complex, costly and, if done poorly, will potentially cause more harm than good.

Explore the reasons to pursue a digital process, the best ways to get started and the obstacles to be on the watch for in Inside Mortgage Financeís "Guide to Digital Mortgages."
