NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Better Mortgage is now licensed to lend to house hunters in Florida, and just in time -- according to research published by Ten-X in the spring of 2017, Tampa and Jacksonville are two of the healthiest housing markets in the country. The performance of these markets can be attributed to steady increases in both property values and wages.
“We’re so excited about offering a better mortgage experience to house hunters in Florida,” said Better’s head of strategy and business development Ben Fine. “As markets get more competitive, it’s critical to help our borrowers stand out in a sea of multiple offers by signaling both certainty and speed to the seller with our Verified Pre-Approval Letter. It can be delivered in 24 hours to qualified borrowers, nearly guaranteeing their ability to secure financing quickly. Plus, by fulling underwriting borrowers before they make their offer, we can close faster.”
Better is continuing to expand its footprint in the U.S. Better is now available and improving access to homeownership in 13 markets. The company is already seeing strong adoption in its current markets, particularly Seattle, Washington, San Francisco, California, and Washington, D.C.
What makes it better for Floridians:
- 24-hour delivery time for Verified Pre-Approval Letters for qualified borrowers.
- The Better Price Guarantee ensures that borrowers are getting the best price.
- 100% digital experience, from pre-approval to a funded loan.
- For conforming loans on a single-family home, Better is committed to a 14-day window from lock to funded loan if a borrower received a Verified Pre-Approval Letter.
- 24/7 access.
