The mortgage industry is leveraging technology like never before, streamlining processes across the spectrum of lending, servicing, investing and real estate. The combination of regulatory pressure and consumer expectations have set a high standard for efficiency and transparency, requiring a significant investment of time, money and talent to hit the right notes for both.
Four years ago, HousingWire created the Tech100 to recognize the increasingly important role of technology companies serving the mortgage space. Every year has seen an increase not only in the number of companies who apply for the award, but also the breadth of their innovation. There is hardly a corner of the mortgage space left that hasn’t been transformed in some way, either by fintech startups focusing on a specific software need or legacy companies evolving to compete in the new environment.
The challenges and opportunities in the housing economy are both greater than ever in 2017. Fortunately, so are the solutions.
HousingWire is proud to honor these 100 companies as the most innovative companies in housing. Their work is propelling the industry to a new level of excellence in doing its most important job: supporting the American Dream.
