Integration Empowers Consumers With Greater Insight Into Title Fees

Mortgage Coach, a borrower conversion platform empowering mortgage lenders to educate borrowers with interactive presentations that model home loan performance over time, has integrated with First American Title Insurance Company, a provider of title insurance and settlement services and the largest subsidiary of First American Financial Corporation (NYSE: FAF). The integration enables lenders to incorporate title fees into custom Total Cost Analysis (TCA) presentations, providing consumers with greater insight into their closing costs.

Mortgage Coach enables lenders to provide a consultative home financing experience using digital TCA presentations that deliver accurate, actionable financial advice and compare the performance of mortgage loans over time. The platform’s connectivity with lenders’ tech stacks allows loan originators to automatically generate and send custom TCA presentations to borrowers via email, text or Mortgage Coach’s native mobile app. The integration with First American Title makes it possible to import exact title fees — including lenders’ title insurance, recording, Escrow service and borrower closing service fees — into TCA presentations.

First Tech Credit Union (First Tech) is the first to leverage Mortgage Coach’s integration with First American Title. According to First Tech Vice President of Mortgage Lending Bill Bolton, “Mortgage Coach TCAs have been pivotal to providing our member family with modern, personalized home financing service that helps them achieve their financial dreams. Using Mortgage Coach’s integration with First American Title to provide exact insight into title fees during the loan selection process demonstrates our commitment to member education and uncompromising service.”  

“When lenders couple consultative education with greater insight into loan fees, consumers feel empowered to make milestone financial decisions with confidence,” said Mortgage Coach President Joseph Puthur. “By providing additional insight into closing costs, Mortgage Coach’s integration with First American Title helps lenders provide an elevated level of service that will keep customers coming back for life.”

“Mortgage Coach’s use of our API is a prime example of how First American Title can create efficiencies for our lender customers, while also simplifying the home-buying process for buyers and sellers,” said Jim Dulle, senior vice president and managing director with First American Title’s Direct Division. “We’re committed to developing and deploying innovative technologies that help improve the process of buying and selling real estate for all the parties involved.”
