(NASDAQ: RDFN) -- Redfin Mortgage, LLC is now offering loans to homebuyers in New Jersey and South Carolina. Redfin Mortgage is a subsidiary of Redfin (www.redfin.com), the tech-powered real estate brokerage. Redfin Mortgage now offers fixed- and adjustable-rate conforming mortgages as well as jumbo loans in 17 states and the District of Columbia. Built on Redfin's technology platform and customer-centric model, Redfin Mortgage charges no lender fees and offers competitive rates, fast pre-approvals and on-time closings.
"We are redesigning the lending process to be fast, easy and intuitive for our customers, combining technology with personal service to streamline the entire experience from pre-approval to closing," said Jason Bateman, head of Redfin Mortgage.
Buyers who are just getting started can fill out an online application and can get pre-approved for a loan in 90 minutes or less. For these buyers, Redfin Mortgage offers a 30-day closing guarantee. For buyers that undergo a fully underwritten pre-approval process (usually one business day turnaround time), Redfin Mortgage offers an even better 25-day closing guarantee. With the closing guarantee, if Redfin Mortgage can't fund the mortgage by the timeline promised, it will give the homebuyer a $1,000 credit towards closing costs, subject to terms and conditions.
"The Redfin Mortgage closing guarantee gives homebuyers an edge if they're bidding on a home that has multiple offers," said Bateman. "By earning a seller's confidence that the sale will close on time, offers from buyers with a Redfin Mortgage pre-approval letter stand out from the crowd."
Redfin Mortgage is built to seamlessly integrate with Redfin's home-buying service, should the homebuyer elect to work with a Redfin agent. When the homebuyer, lender and agent work on the same technology platform, everyone stays informed at every step in the process, resulting in a smoother closing. Redfin real estate agents are not compensated for recommending Redfin Mortgage and encourage customers to work with the lender that offers the best service and value.
