Essent Guaranty



Essent recently launched a new tool, Essent IQ, that real estate and mortgage professionals can use to educate consumers on the economics of home-buying and the financial benefits of ownership.

The tool is designed to help real estate and mortgage professionals simplify conversations around mortgages and show clients the economic benefits of homeownership.

As a mortgage insurer, Essent risks private capital to protect lenders and investors against credit losses, enabling creditworthy borrowers to buy homes with down payments of less than 20%.
