LoanSnap, the world’s first smart loan technology, is now available to help consumers in Florida and Illinois save thousands of dollars a year on their mortgage and take control of their money. The expansion comes as part of LoanSnap’s commitment to bringing smart loans to more Americans, with offerings now available in multiple states, including California, Colorado, Florida and Illinois.
Digital mortgage startup LoanSnap has a goal of getting a mortgage to close in a week by the end of the year; the company already closed 5 loans in 8 days this past June; “We’re automating and creating efficiencies,” said Karl Jacob, CEO, and Founder of LoanSnap, to Forbes. “We’re reducing the mountain of data you have to supply.”
The startup uses AI and machine learning to analyze a person’s financial situation in seconds and then provide options to save money. […] (It) sorts through thousands of loans to find the best one based on the borrower’s situation.
Digital mortgages are becoming a more popular choice for consumers. However, the new startups do not fully understand the lending landscape, according to Karl Jacob, of LoanSnap as he explains to Digital Journal.
Applying for a mortgage, and closing one, can be a tedious process. Lenders must scan your credit reports and study your credit score. You’ll have to provide copies of such documents as your most recent pay stubs, bank statements and tax returns to verify your income.
Karl Jacob pitched his startup LoanSnap to Richard Branson during a kiteboarding trip and walked away with the billionaire’s backing for its $8 million Series A in 2018. Jacob was an early advisor to Facebook, and says his experience working in the early days of social networking reinforced his belief in taking bigger risks and bigger failures.
