Mortgage Tech Rundown looks at the latest news in mortgage technology, featuring new product updates, integrations and announcements.
CoreLogic launched a new analytics product that is designed to predict the probability of home price declines over a 12-month period in the nation’s top 392 metropolitan areas in addition to all 50 states and Washington, D.C.
The product, Market Risk Indicator, aims to provide mortgage professionals with tools needed to mitigate risk in select metropolitan areas that may experience home price downturns.
According to the company, Market Risk Indicators are delivered monthly as an add-on module within the CoreLogic HPI forecast. Users will receive two different score probabilities for each metro area and state: the probability price decline of less than 10% and the probability of a price decline of 10% or more.
“With a majority of economists predicting an economic downturn in the next 18 months, it’s more critical than ever that mortgage professionals understand where potential market pitfalls may lie,” said Ann Regan, executive, collateral solutions for CoreLogic. “Market Risk Indicators can help originators better-set market strategy and help investors better manage their loan portfolios without spending hundreds of thousands of dollars collecting and analyzing the data on their own.”
First American Mortgage Solutions, launched Xtent, which is a new configurable, data solution that provides lenders and servicers with instant property and borrower analytics, powered by First American’s title data.
In a press release, the company explained that the offering streamlines the review process, creates efficiencies and identifies risk. Xtent can be delivered via multiple channels, including an integration into existing tech stacks through an application programming interface, or as data-only, excel/CSV or PDF reports.
“Xtent will empower lenders and servicers to identify and match relevant data to the corresponding risk decisions,” said Kevin Wall, president of First American Mortgage Solutions. “Instead of combing through multiple reports to find the right information, clients can have everything delivered in one customizable solution.”
