HUNTINGTON BEACH, Calif., August 9, 2022 — Mortgage software front runner BeSmartee elevates its industry-leading mortgage point-of-sale (POS) solution to serve consumers seeking home equity loans (HELOAN) and home equity lines of credit (HELOC).
Web-based and mobile responsive, the revolutionary BeSmartee Home Equity POS is easily accessed from any device, offering reliable self-service tools built to satisfy today’s borrowers and lenders HELOC/HELOAN requirements.
According to Black Knight’s Mortgage Monitor report, US homeowners have $11 trillion in tappable equity ($207k per borrower). Credit unions are using the demand for HELOC and HELOANs to their advantage.
“FMFCU offers HELOCs and fixed-rate home equity installment loans, and recent demand has been tremendous. Rising rates have caused a shift away from first mortgages to home equity loan options. We’ll see if that trend continues as rates rise across the board for all loan types,” said Marty Burke, VP/Mortgage Development Officer at Franklin Mint FCU.
“We do offer home equity loans, which have picked up quite a bit. Our home equity portfolio has grown 15% year-over-year, 10% year-to-date, and 20% annualized. So a substantial amount of that growth has occurred during this period of frequent rate increases,” said Ben Teske, EVP/CLO of Greater Texas FCU.
Additionally, a recent HousingWire article reported that both Rocket and loanDepot announced that they are also diversifying their product offerings with home equity loans and lines of credit in response to the fall in mortgage originations.
