EMERYVILLE, CA – March 2, 2021 – National Mortgage Insurance Corporation (National MI), the primary operating subsidiary of NMI Holdings, Inc. (NASDAQ: NMIH), is now integrated with Mortech®, a Zillow® Group business. This integration brings National MI’s real-time, risk-based mortgage insurance pricing tool, Rate GPS® , to lenders leveraging Mortech’s industry-leading product and pricing engine, helping them gain operational efficiencies including increased productivity and decreased loan officer cycle time for a more expedited customer response time.
“National MI is very pleased to integrate with Mortech, an industry leader in mortgage pricing technology,” said Norm Fitzgerald, chief sales officer with National MI. “Lenders and mortgage professionals leveraging Mortech’s pricing engine will now have access to our competitive rates through our Rate GPS risk-based pricing tool, saving them time and streamlining the origination process.”
Mortech’s product and pricing engine provides lenders with instant, accurate pricing at the click of a button, factoring in base price, servicing-released premium (SRP), loan-level price adjustments (LLPAs) and profit margin.
