SAN FRANCISCO--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Blend, a leading provider of cloud banking services, today announced the launch of Blend IMB Essentials, a new edition of Blend’s mortgage suite designed to provide the most important features to retail independent mortgage banks (IMBs) in today’s challenging market.
With this offering, retail IMBs will be equipped with the features most critical for their success, enhancing productivity and operational efficiency while delivering an exceptional experience to borrowers and loan teams at a significantly lower price point.
The offering includes Blend’s best-in-class application process, seamless soft credit pulls for cost savings, hard credit pulls, automated conditions management, real-time loan pricing and scenarios, all while enhancing the capabilities of loan officers with advanced mobile functionality. Customers can also seamlessly scale up to more advanced features in Blend’s standard enterprise edition as needs evolve and market conditions improve.
“This is a historic time for our industry. The mortgage market is grappling with the effects of high interest rates, home affordability, and low inventory, so reducing costs is top of mind for everyone,” said Nima Ghamsari, Head of Blend. “Retail IMBs have helped build Blend into what it is today and we stand by the industry during this time. We will make sure every loan officer can offer the best possible borrower experience while also being able to conveniently manage their pipeline on the go with the LO Mobile App.”
Retail IMBs that choose this offering can be fully live in weeks and with minimal upfront cost. Blend comes pre-integrated with the most common loan origination systems, pricing engines, and other key systems to allow for seamless set-up.
