MortgageBot – Finding You the Best Loans

MortgageBot will help you find the prefect loan for you. It takes in your details and in real-time provides a feed of the loans which best suit you. Online mortgages is the next steps in mortgages. The big banks are saying they want to get into this area. Mortgage Corp already have.

The traditional mortgage broker model is broken:

  • A mortgage broker visits your home
  • They try to use software which is meant to find you the best loan
  • Truth is they know 10 pretty good loans for you already and the software is too complicated
  • They suggest to you three of the good loans though not the prefect loan
  • They know that you have already invited them into your home and are more acceptable to pushy sales techniques
  • Once they close the sale they collect the commission (I would not be surprise if the 10 good loans also have the best commissions)

The tool Create My created allows Mortgage Corp to provide an unique online experience that allows customers full control over the loans they choose. There is no broker coming into your house at late, there is no pushy sales person, and you can do everything online. This is a game changing application.

We used:

  • PHP – to build the backend engine which powers the site and finds you loans
  • MySQL – to store the data
  • AJAX methods – to provide the real-time results from the database
  • CSS – to style the application
  • XHTML – to structure the layout
  • JavaScript and jQuery – to power the AJAX methods
  • XML – for the daily loan data feed
  • SugarCRM – to store the leads
