Reduce Cost and Improve the Mortgage Execution Experience
The mortgage value chain is highly fragmented with various government organizations, real estate, financial and legal intermediaries involved. It is still predominantly paper-based, manual and prone to processing errors. Blockchain technology has the potential to revolutionize the entire mortgage industry - financial institutions stand to gain from reduced costs throughout the mortgage value chain and more efficient interactions with suppliers, agents and customers. The early adopters also have the potential improve customer experience and retention and to win additional business from tech-savvy customers, who expect financial services to be simple, fast and transparent.
As a decentralized, contract-based transaction management system where loans and related payments and approvals are linked together; mortgage origination, initiation and execution is ideal for blockchain. A permissioned mortgage lending blockchain can dramatically reduce costs, fees and fraud; and improve efficiency, transparency and certainty along the whole transaction, for all parties.
