San Francisco-based Trulia has launched the Trulia Mortgage Center, an online marketplace designed to help prospective home buyers and homeowners find the best financing deal. The Trulia Mortgage Center is now available online at Trulia.com and through the new Trulia Mortgage App for iPhone, iPad and iPod touch.
According to the company, the Trulia Mortgage Center will offer personalized quotes on residential property, real-time estimated payments, the ability to connect with lenders about a specific quote and a forum for mortgage-related questions.
‘Our research revealed that even though 76 percent of users who have contacted a real estate professional on Trulia are planning to move in the next six months, more than half are not pre-qualified for a mortgage,’ says Lee Clancy, Trulia's vice president of consumer products. ‘As more people search for homes on-the-go from their smartphones and tablets, we understood how important it is for today's mobile house hunters to be able to search for rates in real time from anywhere, at anytime.’
