Single Source Validation saves lenders time and money
- Allows lenders to validate a borrower’s income, assets, and employment with a single report from a single approved vendor that the lender chooses.
- Uses source data for validation (a borrower’s bank account, including pay stream and direct deposit information).
- Reduces the number of paper documents borrowers need to provide.
- Amplifies savings already being realized by lenders who currently use Day 1 Certainty validation services.
New API platform levels the playing field for lenders
- Provides lenders with all the information they need from Desktop Underwriter to originate a loan.
- Allows lenders to access information that they can customize to their needs.
- Uses industry-standard data formats and protocols so lenders can integrate the Fannie Mae API to their systems quickly and easily.
- Provides sellers greater access to servicers when they sell loans to Fannie Mae and creates more efficiencies in managing co-issue transactions with Fannie Mae.
- Offers transparent pricing, a standardized process, and standardized data requirements when a loan is sold to Fannie Mae.
- Improves data quality and simplifies the servicing rights transfer process for sellers and servicers.
Both the single source validation and API platform are currently in pilot and are expected to be rolled out to all customers next year, while the servicing marketplace will be available to customers in December 2017.
