CHICAGO, IL (PRWEB) February 5, 2006
ProspectZone Inc. today announced the launch of their network of consumer mortgage websites, including http://www.RefinanceLane.com and http://www.BestLenderFinder.com. The sites are designed to connect prospective borrowers nationwide with competitive quotes from local lenders participating in the ProspectZone network.
“The consumer trend is to go first to the internet when researching financial matters. But when the transaction is about to occur, they prefer working directly with a professional who can walk them through the process,” said Clint Jones, chief executive officer, ProspectZone. “Our service combines the convenience of an electronic brokerage with the trust that can only be built through working one-on-one with a local broker or lender.”
Comparing loans with multiple brokers and lenders traditionally can take hours or even days. Consumers using RefinanceLane.com and BestLenderFinder.com, two sites in the ProspectZone network, can save hours of time by connecting to competing offers from up to four local providers in just minutes. Designed to be as user-friendly as possible, the sites’ simple, two-step forms (compared to other sites that have as many as 6 steps) take just 30-seconds to complete, and consumers are not required to divulge sensitive information such as a Social Security Number to receive their quotes.
The sites also feature learning centers to help prospective borrowers make more informed loan decisions. Before requesting a quote, consumers can browse helpful lending glossaries, buyer’s guides and articles and compare their options using complimentary mortgage calculators.
ProspectZone’s network of sites is positioned prominently online so consumers can easily find and take advantage of their services.
For example, consumers interested in a Refinance quote need only to go to Google and type in “refinance quote”
There they will see RefinanceLane.com, offering to connect them with competing quotes from up to four mortgage brokers. Consumers seeking a new purchase, home equity or debt consolidation loan can similarly visit BestLenderFinder.com, where they can be matched with a variety of lenders and loan officers in their area.
The services are accessible to all consumers, no matter what their credit or bankruptcy history is, or household income.
In addition, every time a consumer uses one of the sites, they receive quotes with:
- No obligation
- No cost
- No sensitive information (SSN, etc.) required
“The initial response has been fantastic,” added Jones. “Instead of spending an entire day meeting with loan officers just to understand their options, consumers are now using our sites to compare competitive quotes from the comfort of their home and in a fraction of the time. They can select the lender they’re most comfortable with and are excited for the opportunity to make a more informed loan decision. And participating lenders are enjoying access to their ideal client at the time they are most actively shopping for loans.”
ProspectZone connects mortgage brokers and lenders with prospective borrowers who are actively online seeking their services in their area and meet their criteria. This allows them to concentrate their marketing efforts on proactive consumers who have submitted their quote request through ProspectZone’s system and are waiting to be contacted by local brokers with competing offers.
Since 2004, Chicago-based ProspectZone has worked with the mortgage industry as a leading source of high quality leads and agency solutions. ProspectZone connects interested mortgage consumers with agents and brokers who provide them quotes for new purchase, refinance and home equity loans.
Consumers can receive up to four competing quotes by visiting sites such as http://www.refinancelane.com and http://www.bestlenderfinder.com. Lenders and brokers can reach ProspectZone’s mortgage lead program online at mortgage.prospectzone.com or toll free at 877-561-9663.
