Case Study on Mortgage Pre-purchase Review Process

Read this case study to find out how Flatworld Solutions helped a correspondent lender accelerate their pre-purchase review process leading to a reduction of loan purchase time by 40%.

The Client

The client is a licensed provider of mortgage services in 50 different states. They focus on wholesale, retail, and correspondent lending.

Client's Challenges & Requirements

As a foremost contender in the correspondent lending market, it was difficult for the client to handle a large influx of business. Recruiting and training resources fast enough to cope with the increase in numbers was a huge problem, so the client approached us to narrow this gap. When we took over this task, we had to face the following challenges -

  • Long wait for correspondents to buy their credit/get loans
  • Inferior quality assessment of purchase loans
  • Higher operating costs due to the need for the major underwriter to undergo loan review
  • Slower start caused delays/backlogs

Our Solution

Through multiple webinars, our team familiarized with the customer's existing processes and started working with the internal troubleshooting team. The steps our team took are -

  • Recorded process and prepared task list
  • Cut invalid processes and rebuilt the existing process
  • In less than a month, we were able to double the team
  • Assigned QC team for internal audits and implemented multi-level review process
  • Established regular process control mechanisms to ensure compliance with work plans

The Results

We took only 60 days to bring tangible changes that improved the pre-purchase processes of the client. A few direct results because of the process change include -

  • Faster turnaround
  • Reduction in the number of pending backlogs for pre-order reviews
  • Loan purchase time reduced by 30-40%
  • Higher quality reviews led to a 25-30% reduction in communication time with correspondents
  • Reduction in the operating costs by 50%, resulting in higher profitability

Thanks to the optimized internal processes, the client was able to keep an appropriate balance between uptake and delivery of the service.
