An expensive problem
Lenders will write $1.5T of home mortgages in 2017, and will have to evaluate every single borrower's ability to repay. This is expected to cost the industry $15B in human labor. We talked to these humans, and learned that they spend 1/3 of their time just asking other humans for documents and data that are almost universally available online. While the market is still making the transition to transactional data, Lendsnap is the only company bridging the present with the future by delivering original electronic documents and datasets. That means portfolios of our lender customers stay completely liquid in the secondary market. No one else can offer that today.
How we solve it
Lendsnap solves the financial data access problem for lenders and consumers. Our secure web app links to consumer accounts to gather pay stubs, W2-s, tax returns, and bank statements. We started in mortgage, which TechCrunch calls “the holy grail of lending”. We power mortgage lending with all the documents and data needed to qualify borrowers. Through our web app and public API, we support traditional and online origination workflows to help lenders transition to electronic mortgage origination on their terms. We meet the market where they are today.
How the future looks
We are positioned to address a $4B market that is evolving rapidly right now. Mortgage underwriting rules are set in large part by FNMA and FMAC, the government sponsored entities (GSE’s) that keep mortgage markets liquid. The pivotal sea of change happening right now is the transition from original electronic documents to transactional data sets. While the market is still figuring out how to access and use this new data, Lendsnap bridges the present with the future by delivering original electronic documents and datasets. Our competitors deliver data only but not the original electronic documents.
“Lendsnap has improved our signed application conversion almost overnight because of its speed and ease of use. Once clients send us the documents and we can deliver a full pre-approval, they are more likely to stay with us and use us to satisfy their mortgage needs.”
-Jared, Access Mortgage Partners
“Lendsnap has been a great tool. As a small broker shop, it was challenging to find a resource to obtain complete borrower documentation securely. Lendsnap provides a secure, convenient, and most importantly, a straightforward, simple interface for consumers to provide sensitive information quickly. With my branding incorporated, Lendsnap becomes an extension of my company. Thanks for everything.”
