Historical Pricing Time-Saving By the Numbers

Two weeks ago yesterday, Mortech unveiled Historical Pricing as the newest functionality addition to the Marksman pricing engine and secondary marketing solutions. Since then, we’ve been compiling data to show just how much time this feature can save your secondary desk team. We looked at approximate locked loan files per month for a mortgage institution, and calculated the time difference between the traditional method of manually researching historical and current rates in the event of a re-price on a locked loan, as compared to Marksman’s fully-automated process. The final results were quite interesting:

Historical Pricing


 Assume it takes the average secondary desk analyst approximately twenty minutes to research historical and current rates when re-pricing a loan. This is usually a best-case scenario in which the secondary desk has all rate sheets easily available at their disposal; additionally, it doesn’t include any additional time the secondary marketing desk may take to correspond with investors and wait for responses when doing their research. If the average mortgage institution has to re-price approximately 45 locked loan files per month, that means that they’re spending 16 hours a month manually researching rates and re-pricing loans. This comes out to 192 hours a year, or 24 full workdays per year.


Marksman’s historical pricing tool allows you to enter updated data and get new results in less than a minute per loan file. Historical pricing is just the latest way that Mortech is helping you save valuable time that could be better spent than researching old and current rates.
