Borrowers, right from millennial to those in older demographics, have become tech savvy and look out for lenders who offer easier means of engagement, right from documents collection till loan disbursal and even servicing. Several mortgage companies have introduced technological innovations to offer a faster and streamlined mortgage experience to borrowers. However, there are lenders who are still hesitant to use technology due to prohibitive upfront costs involved in buying or developing appropriate technology.
Digitizing your mortgage workflow can be an expensive affair
As a lender, digitizing your mortgage workflow can be an expensive affair and it will take a while till you reap returns on your investment. You must make a crucial decision of buy vs build.
