FormFree partners with original ‘Shark’ and iconic entrepreneur Kevin Harrington to launch Passport portable financial ID

ATHENS, Ga. -- FormFree® has partnered with serial entrepreneur Kevin Harrington of "Shark Tank" fame to promote Passport®, a free service that makes it easy for consumers to quantify their borrowing power and share their verified assets, employment, annual and residual income and rent payment history with their preferred lender in just minutes from any web-enabled device.

Passport's comprehensive and streamlined approach to verifying borrowers' ability to pay significantly lowers lenders' operational costs, reduces fraud risk and speeds loans along - all while putting borrowers in control of their data and opening up financial inclusivity to the historically underserved.

Harrington's team will support FormFree's October 20 launch of Passport with advisory and marketing services, including the engagement of financial advisors, real estate agents and social media influencers in sharing the service with consumers who are ready to use their credit to achieve financial goals such as consolidating debts or financing the purchase of an automobile or home.

Brent Chandler, founder and CEO of FormFree, pioneered digital asset verification with the 2009 launch of AccountChek®, a service that was used by more than 3,500 mortgage lenders to verify more than $4 trillion in borrower assets before its strategic divestiture to Stewart Information Services Corporation (NYSE: STC) subsidiary Informative Research in March 2023. With the consumer debut of Passport, Chandler aims to transform the lending industry once again with technology that leapfrogs current financing barriers.

"Kevin [Harrington] is a masterful communicator. Together we're reshaping credit access with Passport by giving consumers direct control over their data for the first time," said Chandler. "As we initiate this transformative shift in lending, our focus on low income and minority buyers is unwavering. They are at the heart of this change and stand to reap significant benefits."

"Having to gather and provide dozens of documents just to understand their own borrowing capacity deters countless consumers from applying for financing - and it's a hurdle they have to clear again and again if they want to apply with several lenders and compare offers," added Harrington. "Passport makes it practical for consumers to share their always up-to-date financial data with a marketplace of lenders all at once and consider multiple, competitive offers."

Chandler and Harrington will appear together at the Mortgage Bankers Association Annual Convention and Expo in Philadelphia next week to introduce Passport to mortgage industry participants and preview the FormFree Exchange (FFX), the online marketplace where lenders compete for the business of Passport users.

"This idea is something we've been working on for a while now," said Chandler. "There is already a lot of excitement about how FFX would speed and simplify customer acquisition and help buyers get the best financial products for their needs."

About FormFree®:

FormFree empowers consumers to understand their ability to pay and share it with lenders like never before. Using FormFree's Passport® app, consumers can verify all the core financial data required by loan underwriters - including identity, assets, income, employment credit history and cash-flow data - in seconds. Once consumers are ready to transact, they can anonymously share their verified data on the FormFree Exchange (FFX) and receive immediate offers from a marketplace of lenders who fully understand their ability to pay, residual income and eligibility for down payment assistance and inclusive lending programs.

MMI expands Custom Dashboard Hub with Community Reinvestment Act and low-to-moderate income data analytics capabilities

SALT LAKE CITY, Utah -- Mobility Market Intelligence (MMI), a leader in data intelligence and market insight tools for the mortgage and real estate industries, today announced the addition of a suite of new dashboards to its growing Custom Dashboard Hub. Built to assist lenders in researching areas to expand their Community Reinvestment Act (CRA), low-to-moderate income (LMI) and majority-minority census tract (MMCT) lending initiatives, the six new dashboards allow lenders to penetrate areas of high growth and increase the span of actionable insights and applications for users.

Banks, credit unions and independent mortgage companies have an increased need for tools to analyze the market at a deeper level and find hidden pockets of opportunity for CRA, LMI and MMCT lending. The new suite of dashboards, including Census Tract, Community Reinvestment Planning and Minority Community Lending dashboards, can help lenders formulate business plans in high growth / high reward areas, identify recruiting candidates and referral partners entrenched in these areas and gain insight into baseline and comparative performance metrics.

Minority homeownership is on the rise and is expected to continue to grow, as predicted by The Urban Institute. Between 2020 and 2040, there will be 6.9 million net new homeowners, which includes 4.8 million more Hispanic homeowners, 2.7 million more Asian and other homeowners and 1.2 million more Black homeowners.

Additionally, a recent report from the National Association of Hispanic Real Estate Professionals (NAHREP) states Latinos are more mortgage-ready than ever, referencing that there were 7.9 million Latinos aged 45 or under who have the credit characteristics to qualify for a mortgage and 2.8 million who were near mortgage-ready in 2022.

"MMI's Custom Dashboard Hub allows users to access a deep well of the most current and accurate data available in a faster, more visual format," said MMI founder and CEO Ben Teerlink. "The new CRA, LMI and MMCT capabilities provide increased granularity and insights related to these lending initiatives. For lenders emphasizing CRA, LMI and MMCT lending, it's not enough to analyze their overall performance in local markets; they need to analyze the data through those lenses."

The new CRA, LMI and MMCT capabilities will allow users to:

* See detailed census tract data to better understand an area's demographic breakdown;

* Increase visibility into performing and non-performing markets;

* Analyze production by LMI and MMCT for lenders and loan originators (LOs); and

* Cultivate relationships with referral partners having success in diverse markets.

Floify announces launch of verification of income and employment waterfall technology

BOULDER, Colo. -- Floify, the mortgage industry's leading point-of-sale solution and subsidiary of Porch Group, Inc. ("Porch Group") (NASDAQ: PRCH), today announced the launch of verification of income (VOI) and verification of employment (VOE) waterfall technology. The new features will help lenders and brokers save time and reduce costs during the loan origination process.

Running employment and income verification reports is an important yet expensive step in the mortgage process and designed to reduce loan risk during underwriting. The new VOI and VOE features in the Floify platform enable mortgage professionals to view the results of multiple verification reports from different providers, starting with the least expensive, rather than having to run each one individually. This is expected to save Floify clients time while also realizing cost savings.

"We are pleased to launch the VOI and VOE waterfall with Informative Research. This unique technology will help our clients reduce costs, which is especially important today as verification-related fees increased significantly in the past three years," said Sofia Rossato, Floify's president and general manager. "As an added benefit, because these waterfalls can be run within the Floify platform, our clients can bypass loan origination system add-on fees that often come with enabling new features."

"The Floify and Informative Research VOE/I waterfall solution helps us accelerate the application-to-close timeline while delivering significant cost reductions to our branches and clients," said John Norris, vice president of technology and innovation at Benchmark Mortgage, a Dallas-based mortgage lender.

"Informative Research's Verification Waterfall and AccountChek technologies work together with Floify's platform to enhance the asset, employment and income verification processes. The partnership seeks to eliminate redundant orders and to streamline what used to be a cumbersome procedure for lenders," said Craig Leabig, SVP of marketing and product management for Informative Research.

Mortgage Machine Services launches loan origination system built for the digital mortgage era

ADDISON, Texas -- Mortgage Machine Services, an industry leader in digital origination technology to residential mortgage lenders, announced the launch of its namesake platform Mortgage Machine™, an out-of-the-box, all-in-one loan origination system (LOS) designed to accelerate lenders' operational velocity and support an end-to-end digital origination process.

Developed by digital mortgage pioneer and industry veteran Jeff Bode, Mortgage Machine aims to simplify complex mortgage processes and consolidate disjointed operations by leveraging workflow automation, compliance assurance and digital enhancements to create a seamless lending experience.

"The LOS is the operational linchpin for every mortgage business, but most LOS platforms on the market today were not designed to support a fully digital origination process," Bode said. "As a result, lenders often have to retrofit their existing LOS or work around its limitations to achieve their digital goals. Mortgage Machine was intentionally designed with a digital process in mind, giving lenders the ability to 'plug n' play' and move faster than ever, and has been battle tested inside a digital-first mortgage lender to ensure it can provide the necessary lift lenders need to make the move to eMortgages."

Mortgage Machine features AI-powered task automation, a scalable cloud-based infrastructure and flexible API capabilities. The platform also offers pre-configured workflows tailored for retail and wholesale loan processes, ensuring it works across retail, wholesale and correspondent lending channels. With seamless document management and point-of-sale functions, loan officers remain in control of the entire loan lifecycle to increase efficiency, reduce costs and enhance the borrower experience. The system also provides end-to-end support throughout the lending, underwriting, documentation and closing of a residential mortgage loan.

In addition to incorporating the latest AI and document management, Mortgage Machine offers all-in-one eClosing functionality, including an eClose room, eNotes, eVault and remote online notarization (RON). The platform also includes SMART Doc(r) data and security standards from the Mortgage Industry Standards Maintenance Organization (MISMO), enabling lenders to utilize this electronic document format throughout the entire lending process and even into loan servicing.

"SMART Docs are one of the most necessary - and overlooked - components to executing digital mortgage at scale," Bode added. "Utilizing this standard in Mortgage Machine not only provides lenders with a significant operational assist in getting started with digital mortgages, but it also ensures the security and integrity of the documents and data being processed by the system, thus adding an extra layer of confidence in moving to an entirely automated, electronic origination process."
