Exclusive program adds power to homebuyer offers with unimaginable speed
CHICAGO, April 14, 2023 /PRNewswire/ — Proper Rate, a joint venture between Guaranteed Rate and @properties, today announced the launch of Same Day Mortgage,1 delivering a loan approval in less than 24 hours. This launch expands upon Proper Rate’s commitment to deliver a fast, efficient and cutting-edge financing process to borrowers. This program first rolled out to a select group of Proper Rate and Guaranteed Rate customers in 2022, resulting in $1.1 billion in closed loan volume. Today, Proper Rate launches Same Day Mortgage nationwide to get buyers into homes quickly and effortlessly.
“Proper Rate has always been a company that puts the customers first. We want to help every borrower get into the home of their dreams, and this program is going to bring us to the next level,” said Dan Moran, EVP of Sales of Proper Rate. “Same Day Mortgage is perfect for today’s fast paced market – making the mortgage process fast and easy for all involved. Using industry leading technology and a streamlined, efficient process, Proper Rate’s Same Day Mortgage will completely change the mortgage experience.”
First-time homebuyers are at a real disadvantage in today’s housing market, especially when going up against all-cash buyers who make up 28% of home purchases†. Same Day Mortgage levels the playing field, giving the big advantage cash buyers enjoy to everyone—speed.
Real estate agents also benefit from the power of Same Day Mortgage. With the spring selling season upon us and inventory near all-time lows, Same Day Mortgage is an essential tool for a buyer and agent to expedite successful closings in what could turn out to be a seller’s market. When buyers use Same Day Mortgage along with PowerBid Approval, Proper Rate’s fully underwritten pre-approval letter, their offers compete aggressively with all-cash buyers.
Not only will Same Day Mortgage help more borrowers get the home they want, they can also earn a $250 discount just for submitting required documentation in eight hours. To receive this credit, buyers simply access their account through Proper Rate’s Digital Mortgage platform, electronically sign the initial application package and then upload requested documentation on the same day. After this information is submitted, Proper Rate validates income, collateral, assets and credit before issuing approval to close. With Same Day Mortgage, buyers can close in as little as 10 days.
To date, Guaranteed Rate Companies have delivered more than 3,300 one-day approvals totaling $1.1B; all while maintaining a Net Promoter Score (NPS) of 97 since the launch of the program. This year, conforming loan limits have been raised to as high as $1,089,300, allowing even more prospective consumers to purchase the home of their dreams.
