Mortgage Leads

Our propensity models, prescreen and mortgage inquiry trigger solutions can help you originate more mortgage loans

Optimize your resources by focusing on mortgage lead generation that is driven by intelligent, customer specific, credit-based solutions

As a lender, you want to capitalize on as many mortgage loan leads and mortgage refinance leads as possible. It’s to your advantage to be able to identify, target and engage consumers who might be shopping for a new mortgage loan in the near future or are currently shopping for one—and it’s critical to do so in the earliest phases of the decision cycle.

TransUnion’s acquisition tools help you establish which mortgage leads are eligible based on your credit criteria so you don’t waste time pursuing consumers that won’t be approved or are not in your geographic footprint. Advanced analytics determine which of those mortgage prospects are expected to be shopping for a mortgage in the near future, or, even more timely, which consumers are currently shopping for a mortgage. With these insights generated through TransUnion solutions, you can create a targeted prescreen audience of the most desirable mortgage leads —eligible consumers who have the highest likelihood of booking a mortgage with you.
