Anything you submit over our website is 100 percent, fully secure. And we never, ever share it with anyone except by permission -- that is, if you're giving us information you want us to use to get you the best loan, we use that information to tell mortgage lenders about you and convince them to loan you money. In turn, those mortgage lenders are bound by federal law to keep your information secure. We work for you, the borrower, to find the best loan program from thousands of loan programs (banks usually just offer bank products). We shop the lenders for you and find you the best deal we can.
Here is a list of the information mortgage lenders will use to consider your loan application.
