Borrowers interested in a mortgage through Homefinity can request a quote online, but must give their contact information to do so. You can start the preapproval process online as well, in which the lender will evaluate your credit, assets and income and then issue a preapproval letter if you’re eligible for a loan. When you’re ready, there is also the option to apply for a mortgage online through Homefinity’s secure portal or the Homefinity Xpress app, through which borrowers can apply for a loan in 10 minutes, scan and upload documents and track progress with push notifications. Borrowers can also take advantage of a one-click call or text feature to contact their loan officer or Realtor. The app’s other features include a calculator to estimate loan scenarios with full monthly payments and the ability to connect to home search sites.

Refinancing with Homefinity
You have the option to refinance with Homefinity, but similar to applying for a purchase loan, you must provide your contact information so that a loan officer can reach out and assist you with the process.
