BOSTON, Mass. /Massachusetts Newswire/ — HomeBinder, a centralized home management platform that keeps homeowners connected with mortgage lenders, Realtors, and other authorized professionals, today announced it has joined The Mortgage Collaborative’s (TMC) Preferred Partner Network. The new membership enables HomeBinder to offer preferential pricing to TMC’s nearly 150 member banks, credit unions and independent mortgage banking companies. Trusted by over 600,000 homeowners to date, HomeBinder simplifies homeownership, improves home values and increases repeat and referral business for mortgage lenders and Realtors.
“HomeBinder is an exciting addition to the TMC Preferred Partner Network that offers a fresh competitive advantage to Lender Members,” said Steven A. Milner, founder and CEO of nationally licensed direct mortgage lender US Mortgage Corporation for 28 years and a TMC board member. “A core value here at US Mortgage is to ‘seek longevity.’ It is a belief that informs everything from how we make business decisions of the long-term success of the company in mind to how we foster a work environment where employees want to build a lifelong career. We also seek longevity in our client relationships, and in that quest we seek to become a lender for life to all our clients. HomeBinder is the ideal partner to Lender Members for that purpose.”
By partnering with HomeBinder, mortgage lenders can furnish each borrower with an online platform designed to make managing a home and maintaining its value easier. HomeBinder features include document storage, maintenance reminders, appliance recall notifications, a digital home inventory and more. The platform also helps lenders and real estate agents stay connected with clients long after the home sale thanks to prominent placement of their contact information within each borrower’s HomeBinder.
“Our mission is to deliver homeowners peace of mind and optimize their home’s value by being the bridge between them and the businesses that support their ownership,” said HomeBinder Founder and CEO Jack Huntress. “We are delighted to join The Mortgage Collaborative and look forward to working with lenders who share our vision of supporting the homeownership journey and see the value in having deeper, longer-lasting relationships with their clients.”
