Are you a broker in the mortgage business? Then, this article is for you!
Why automate your mortgage leads workflow?
The process of gathering all information about your leads (name, contact number, credit rating, and finance number) and assigning credit score for pre-qualifying can be very time-consuming. Nurturing new leads is critical and you don’t want to spend time sorting out leads on a daily basis.
As a broker, you may be receiving leads from your broker sites, contact forms and 3rd party lead generation platforms. There may be other marketing channels that are generating leads for you as well. The more leads you attract, the more it’s good for business!
But, what happens when all those emails come in a different format with distinct field names? You may find yourself overwhelmed with a surge of inbound email leads but with little time to contact them. You may also receive various queries from customers who are looking for home loans on a long term basis (information on the monthly mortgage payment, the life of the loan, property taxes, or simply the loan terms).
Responding to your leads quickly will help you close the deal quicker as you also need to monitor the response time of mortgage lenders.
