The dedicated mortgage marketplace app of Zillow has just been updated with a new feature for so-called “underwater homeowners.”
If you’re an underwater homeowner, or if you owe more on your mortgages than your home is worth, you may find the new version of the Zillow Mortgage Marketplace app quite beneficial.
This is because the Zillow Mortgage Marketplace app now enables underwater homeowners to access relevant information and loan quotes for Home Affordable Refinance Program (HARP) and FHA Streamline Refinance. As such, the app has become the first and only mobile app to connect with lenders who are quoting these special government-backed underwater refinancing programs.
In addition, the Zillow Mortgage Marketplace app has been updated with the following improvements:
- New Landing Page and Home Screen: See the breadth of Zillow’s mortgage information in just one tap.
- New Quote Details Page: Navigation bar moves on scroll, allowing easy access to details on rate history, sharing or retrieving rate quotes. Color-coding helps identify quotes already reviewed.
- Expanded Lender Profiles: Users can view and scroll through more than 33,000 lender reviews quickly and easily.
- Re-designed Calculators: Interactive charts and graphs make it simple to find the best loan.
The new and improved version of the Zillow Mortgage Marketplace app, called Mortgage Calculator & Mortgage Rates by Zillow in the App Store, is available now to download for free. It’s compatible with iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad running iOS 5.0 or later.
