Real Estate Transactions Go Virtual

To streamline work flow, Freedom Mortgage uses a digital verification service called AccountChek to review the borrower’s income and employment information. Other mortgage-specific software includes Encompass by Ellie Mae, which Mr. Bensimon uses to originate loan packages, and SnapDocs, a platform that can be combined with Encompass to facilitate interactions and digital closings.

New systems designed to simplify the lending process for borrowers include Better and Morty, a mortgage broker that acts as a middle man between the home buyer and the lender, securing a package and then walking the borrower through the closing process.

Jeanne Casey, a principal at MetaProp, a venture capital firm focused on real estate technology, noted how QuickenLoans, one of the largest online lenders in the country, has helped catalyze these younger companies. “Having those digital roots is paving the way for the digitization of the overall mortgage industry,” she said. “We’ve seen so much
