Moving, we know, is considered one of life’s most stressful experiences. The third most stressful life event, in fact, right behind death and divorce. Call us optimistic, or call us experienced from the 30 years we’ve spent serving our borrowers as a leading mortgage lender in our industry, but we’ve found that taking a few smart-cuts can make moving and mortgage much easier.
To address the rest of the stress that can come with moving into a new house — finding a good lender, picking the right mortgage, and closing on time — we’ve created a free app to make home loans easy.
6 ways the LoanFly App can help get you home sooner
Like the pack hacks you see in our Moving for Success video, our LoanFly app is really convenient. LoanFly lets you soar right through your home buying process using six distinct features.
Here’s how it works:
1. LoanFly shows you the latest homes on the market.
Not all listings are equal. Some aren’t updated immediately, and that lag time means that you could be checking out homes that have already been sold. For homebuyers hoping to cut down on time waste, this can be pretty annoying. Fortunately, our LoanFly app is connected to an up-to-date, nationwide database of available homes. It’s called the MLS. Problem solved.
2. LoanFly lets you prequalify.
When you prequalify, you get a sneak peek of how much home you can afford. This can be extremely helpful when house-hunting. If a realtor or a seller sees that you’ve gotten your prequalification out of the way, they’ll see you as a more serious buyer. And this will give you an edge over the competition.
Our app lets you prequalify from almost anywhere in 15 minutes, making it even more convenient for buyers.
3. LoanFly reveals what’s really going on with your loan.
Though the mortgage process can appear complicated, LoanFly makes it fast, friendly, and easy. With the LoanFly Borrower Portal, you’ll get real-time status updates on your loan. Is it with the underwriter? You’ll know. The appraiser? Check. With this portal, you can “helicopter” your mortgage — checking for status updates, securely uploading your loan documents, and getting 24/7 access to what’s going on with your loan.
Our borrowers use LoanFly for an “as you like it” home loan experience — checking the app as little or as much as they want — which can eliminate tossing and turning at night. LoanFly gets you answers fast.
4. LoanFly allows you to request rates based on the home you’re interested in.
While you’re browsing for homes with this app, you can also request a current rate for that home’s zip code. That’s especially helpful if you’re considering homes in different areas, and you’d like to compare what your costs would be. Easy!
5. LoanFly calculates your payments in detail.
Are you one of those people who loves spreadsheets? Then you might love this feature. It allows you to calculate your potential monthly payments and compare your savings with ease. This is especially helpful if you’re comparing a 15-year versus a 30-year mortgage.
Buying a house is a big investment, and we want you to be able to carefully make your decision. Anything that can help us help you is a win-win.
6. LoanFly connects you with your lender.
When you’re using LoanFly to fly through your mortgage, you’re bound to have some questions. We want to make contacting your home buying team as easy as possible, which is why we integrated this feature right into the app. For us, it’s not enough to offer our clients a technology that’s easy to use.
We want to give you a personalized level of attention that you can’t find elsewhere.
Some moving stress is bound to happen — though we hope our pack hacks can help with that. But mortgage stress is something we’re committed to getting rid of completely. Download our free LoanFly app to take care of all the details and stay in communication with your loan officer each step of the way. With your mortgage in good hands, you’ll only have to worry about who’s packing the truck on moving day.
