HELOC positions brokers as a key support system for owners
ANN ARBOUR, Mich., November 7, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — Homepoint, one of the nation’s largest wholesale mortgage lenders, today announced the launch of its new home equity line of credit (HELOC) in 38 states and washington d.c., available through its network of partner mortgage brokers. The company plans to expand the list of HELOC-eligible states in the coming months.
The Homepoint HELOC is essentially a 100% digital lending platform experience, from application to closing, requiring minimal upload of income and asset documents. Depending on a borrower’s credit characteristics, Homepoint may be able to provide same-day approval and fund a HELOC within five business days of final approval.
“This new home equity line of credit is another way we aim to position mortgage brokers at the forefront of consumers’ minds when it comes to home affordability and maximizing value of their home,” said Phil Shoemaker, president of Originations at Homepoint. “Brokers are more than their title suggests – they are truly capable of serving as stewards for stronger overall financial health. The Homepoint HELOC empowers brokers to build stronger relationships within their communities by helping owners to achieve their goals.”
The Homepoint HELOC is a stand-alone line of credit, with a fixed interest rate determined on each drawing calculated using the indicated index, plus a margin. Our HELOC product offering gives independent loan originators a tool to help their clients use the equity in their home to pay off debt, fund home improvement projects, or make other monthly payments more manageable.
