CHICAGO, Oct. 3, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Guaranteed Rate, Inc., one of the largest retail mortgage lenders in the United States, today announces that its FlashClose™ digital closing solution aims to achieve record-setting times for closings.
With more than $25 billion in total funded loan volume this year, Guaranteed Rate has grown to be one of the top retail lenders in the country by delivering an on-the-go experience built for the next generation of homebuyers.
"Our vision at Guaranteed Rate is to deliver a simple, best-in-class homebuying experience for every generation," said Guaranteed Rate Chief Operating Officer Nikolaos Athanasiou. "We are thrilled to announce our enhancements to FlashClose, which puts even more power in the hands of homebuyers—wherever and however they want to close."
Now, whether it's from the bottom of the Grand Canyon or on an airplane 30,000 feet above ground, eligible borrowers can electronically review, sign and notarize closing documents from their internet-connected devices—anytime, anywhere.
Through a partnership with Notarize, the first company to enable an entirely online real estate closing process, the FlashClose homebuying experience redefines the closing process by giving borrowers the tools they need to close on their own terms—fully online or with the loan officer's assistance. The majority of Americans will soon be able to go from house hunting to closing entirely online.
