LenderClose Expands Office Space to Accommodate Growth
LenderClose, a real estate and home equity lending technology platform, expanded its headquarters to accommodate current and future growth. By increasing the size of the current workplace, the lending platform provider will grow floor space and capacity while prioritizing collaborative workspaces.
“LenderClose has seen significant growth, both in the number of clients we serve and in our internal team, since we were founded in 2015,” said Allen Jingst, LenderClose CRO. “From two staff members in a shared workspace to now, we have relentlessly executed our plan for physical expansion as well as the expansion of our platform offerings and client relationships.”
Streamlining the Home Equity Lending Process with Technology
No matter what the status of the market is, it is always a good time for credit unions to expand their offerings to include home equity loans to create a balanced portfolio of different types of loans. The lack of housing stock and high prices for the homes that are on the market have decreased home sales, and this makes home equity loans even more attractive to homeowners.
Credit unions can tap into that market of homeowners who are turning to option B to get the home they want – a home equity loan for renovations. The key for credit unions to make this a successful endeavor is using technology to streamline the process.
