DALLAS, Dec. 2, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- To deliver a next-generation experience for homebuyers and homeowners, Capital One Home Loans has launched a completely reimagined, personal and digital home loans experience. Available in select markets, this new process allows customers to pre-qualify for a home loan in minutes from any device, apply for a mortgage or a home equity loan online, upload documents and digitally track progress from application to closing. It also includes great rates and personalized service from a dedicated loan officer when a customer needs it.
According to a recent survey conducted online by Capital One, 82 percent of Dallas-Fort Worth (DFW) homeowners are likely to consider using a financial provider that offers a digital home loan experience. And now, Capital One Home Loans is putting the power in people's hands. Customers can make adjustments to compare their financing options in real time - including calculating an estimated monthly payment and annual percentage rate - all while receiving personal service from a dedicated loan officer every step of the way.
The DFW housing market is thriving. In fact, according to the same survey, 43 percent of DFW homeowners are willing to get into a "bidding war" to buy the home they really want. However, nearly seven in ten (68 percent) homeowners admit to facing obstacles in obtaining a loan. When asked to identify these specific challenges, 33 percent of respondents cited the amount of paperwork needed and 29 percent indicated not knowing exactly where they stood in the application process.
"When you consider these obstacles, it becomes evident that customers are looking for a sophisticated digital home loans offering supported by great customer service," said Ravi Raghu, Senior Vice President, Capital One Home Loans. "Whether they're purchasing, refinancing or remodeling their home, we are committed to making the loan process easier and more efficient for our customers. Our new take on home loans empowers homeowners and homebuyers to take charge with the support they need on their own terms."
To celebrate the launch of this experience in DFW, Capital One Home Loans is partnering with television stars and home buying and design experts, Jillian Harris and Todd Talbot, for an Open House event at the Stonebriar Centre in Frisco on December 12 from 1:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m. At the event, Harris and Talbot will share do-it-yourself tips and tricks for simplifying the entire home buying and remodeling process. Event attendees will have the opportunity to meet the home experts, tour a replica house, get autographs and pictures, and learn more about the new digital and personal Capital One Home Loans offering.
