Taking Their Business to the Next Level: Plaza Home Mortgage Inc. Becomes Lender in Point, Implements LoanScoreCard QM Solution

Plaza Home Mortgage Inc., a full-service wholesale and correspondent lender, is now a lender in Calyx Point®. Plaza will also be implementing LoanScoreCard’s QM solution into PULSE, Plaza’s broker/correspondent portal.

For Point users, there is no longer a need to manually export a FNMA 3.2 file to submit a loan to Plaza. When launched from Point’s Lender menu, the Plaza website will automatically bring in the full 1003 and fees worksheet from the currently open Point file. Plaza has taken this extra step to help streamline the origination process, save time and reduce possibilities for error.

On December 5, Plaza will roll-out LoanScoreCard QM Findings into their workflow, enabling their brokers and correspondents to assess QM compliance prior to submitting the loan, automatically incorporating Plaza’s live pricing, LO compensation plan and starting adjusted rate.

Julie Manson, Plaza’s senior vice president of risk management says, “We’re excited to introduce the LoanScoreCard QM Findings Report through our loan origination system. A simple upload or entry of fees will allow our clients to evaluate whether the points and fees pass the QM test. This resource will help our brokers and correspondents confidently originate loans in this ever changing environment.”


Process Loans Faster: Integrating the Best of Mortech and Calyx

Working Smarter
Mortech® and Calyx have created an easier way to define borrower eligibility while finding the best pricing data. Users can compare multiple loan scenarios simultaneously using Mortech’s Marksman®, and they can calculate potential revenues with detailed profit tables — all without leaving the loan file in Point.

Maximizing Efficiencies
Utilizing these dynamic functionalities enables Marksman to automatically populate the data needed to find eligible products with real-time pricing. This time-saving benefit reduces re-keying mistakes in Point once the chosen product and price are selected. The detailed profit tables allow users to calculate potential revenues while maximizing efficiencies.   >>More>>
