Initiatives for Lenders to Improve Closing Ratios

In: Blog

As we draw to a close in 2021, it is time to plan ahead for 2022. Mortgage Banker’s Association is projecting significant growth in purchase volumes, while refinance is expected to see a significant decline through 2022. If lenders want to benefit from these purchase volumes, they should be able to convert these volumes to funded loans. Low closure ratios will only affect them adversely, as this will keep adding to their fixed costs.

If you onboard a borrower loan for processing and take too much time to process their loan, they are most likely going to take an offer from your competition. While doing so, the poor experience that they had, while engaging with your lending firm, is also going to get around through word of mouth, denting your reputation.

Also, while their loans are being processed, providing transparency and constant communication/notifications is an important factor, which helps improve the borrower experience. This transparency can also help you analyze where the delays are happening and take appropriate corrective actions.
