Originally launched in January this year, Redfin Mortgage initially began in Texas and continues to expand; it plans to serve clients in Virginia by the end of the year as well as others in 2018. Redfin primarily serves homebuyers who choose Redfin real estate agents.Redfin currently offers 30-year and 15-year fixed rate and adjustable mortgages, as well as underwritten preapprovals. To guarantee a borrower an approved loan, Redfin reviews and verifies all borrower information in advance. The borrower’s credit and employment status must not significantly change after the pre-approval and the home shall not be appraised lower than the proposed sale price. The borrower must also provide proof of acceptable title commitment and homeowner’s insurance.“In the current competitive real estate market, a fully underwritten pre-approval gives the homebuyer an edge by earning the seller’s confidence that the loan will be approved quickly and the sale will close on time,” said Jason Bateman, head of Redfin Mortgage. “In a bidding war, a buyer with a fully underwritten pre-approval can consider waiving the financing contingency to make their offer nearly as appealing to a seller as an all-cash offer” according to Bateman.  Redfin Mortgage integrates an affiliated lending operation with its own existing brokerage and title businesses to work towards the goal of an entirely digital process. This process is meant to cover all steps from applying for the loan to closing. Redfin hopes to be the fastest and most transparent way for homebuyers to receive a quote, get pre-approved, and submit an offer to buy a home. According to the release, Redfin real estate agents have no incentive to offer Redfin loans over others and will continue to encourage consumers to work with lenders that offer the best service and rates.To see the full release from Redfin click here.  About Author: Dean Terrell Governmental Measures Target Expanded Access to Affordable Housing 2 days ago Demand Propels Home Prices Upward 2 days ago Previous: CFPB Outlines Protecting Consumer-shared Data Next: Ellie Mae Releases New Update to Mortgage Management Solution Tagged with: adjustable fixed rate Illinois Jason Bateman Redfin Redfin Mortgage  Print This Post Servicers Navigate the Post-Pandemic World 2 days ago Data Provider Black Knight to Acquire Top of Mind 2 days ago Demand Propels Home Prices Upward 2 days ago Share Save The Best Markets For Residential Property Investors 2 days ago The Week Ahead: Nearing the Forbearance Exit 2 days ago Governmental Measures Target Expanded Access to Affordable Housing 2 days ago Data Provider Black Knight to Acquire Top of Mind 2 days ago October 22, 2017 1,413 Views Home / Featured / Redfin Mortgages Expanding to Illinois in Featured, Headlines Redfin Mortgages Expanding to Illinois Subscribelast_img read more

The committee’s vote will decide whether Kraninger’s nomination will move to the Senate for a vote to confirm her as the Director of the Bureau.Kraninger, who is currently an Associate Director at the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) was nominated by President Trump in June. She faced a tough banking committee hearing in July. In a Q&A during the deliberations, members of the committee asked some difficult questions related to her role at the OMB as well as what one could expect from her if she was confirmed as the Director of BCFP. If confirmed as Director of the BCFP, Kraninger said that she would, “focus solely on serving the American people.”During her testimony, Kraninger hinted at pursuing a similar path as the current Acting Director Mick Mulvaney. She said that she had four initial priorities for the Bureau if confirmed as Director The first priority she said would be to make the Bureau “fair and transparent.”The vote on Thursday will decide if Kraninger can go ahead and pursue the priorities she’s set for the Bureau if she becomes the Director.Here’s what else is in store in The Week Ahead:MBA Apps, Wednesday, 7 a.m. ETExisting Home Sales Report, Wednesday, 10 a.m. ETMReport Webinar on Millennial Homebuyers, Thursday, 2 p.m. CTFHFA Price Index, Thursday, 9 a.m. ETNew Home Sales Report, Thursday, 10 a.m. ETRead the details of Kraninger’s nomination hearing at the Banking Committee:Kraninger: ‘Will Focus Solely on Serving the American People’ Demand Propels Home Prices Upward 2 days ago Governmental Measures Target Expanded Access to Affordable Housing 2 days ago Subscribelast_img read more

Here are some key takeaways from real estate in 2020.Virtual Shopping for HomesWhile virtual tours aren’t necessarily new, the pandemic propelled them into popularity. Zillow 3D Home virtual tours jumped up 750% the month after many cities enacted shelter-in-place mandates. And the feature remained high throughout the spring.Real estate agents jumped on the virtual meeting trend to show houses to potential buyers via video chat. And renters could even search, tour, apply for, and lease their next home all from the comfort and safety of their old home.Supply and DemandThere’s already been a lower amount of inventory, but the pandemic convinced many potential sellers to stay put, placing even more pressure on the homes that did become available. One out of every five homes sold went for higher than the listed price, and homes were selling at a faster pace than they were two years ago.And this intense demand isn’t going anywhere fast. Low mortgage rates, millennials looking to upgrade, and the Great Reshuffling will continue to make 2021 a seller’s market.No Mass ExodusIt was originally thought that people were fleeing big cities in droves for smaller towns, bigger homes, and wide-open spaces. But those reports were premature. While there are a few markets where the suburbs are outperforming the cities—New York City and San Francisco, for example—the majority of the country saw the suburbs and the cities were performing the same.If there’s any shift from urban to suburban, it’s with rentals. In fact, rent in big cities did show a significant drop since February, indicating job loss and unemployment from the pandemic.People’s New PreferencesSince families are spending so much more time in their homes—and together—privacy has become a luxury. Homebuilders are predicting that open floor plans aren’t going to be as popular as they have been—now people desire walls to separate at-home workers from at-home schoolers.Searches for home offices have been on the rise, as well as large outdoor spaces and well-equipped kitchens.2020 was definitely a year for the record books. It’ll be interesting to see what trends have staying power in 2021.
