The US housing crisis from 2006 to 2009 changed how banks approved their mortgage loans. They’ve become stricter with the approval of these loans. Before the housing issue, the average borrower paid 20% of their down payment. Today’s borrowers only pay 5%, which has a significant impact on a mortgage lending business’s profit and operational costs. Can mortgage processing be done at a lower cost such that the lender or bank can focus on improving their services within these circumstances?
