2. What is Mortgage Propeller
Mortgage Propeller is an online solution for both home buyers and mortgage brokers. Our technology simplifies the mortgage application process, and accelerates your journey to mortgage joy.
Home Buyers and 'Remortgagers' can complete their loan applications online. Everything is done over the simple platform, including submitting documents and tracking progress, but you will never be left feeling lost or alone.
At Mortgage Propeller we pride ourselves on that human touch and friendliness, when we started it was essential that our platform felt approachable and the opposite of intimidating. Along your application journey, your (human) FCA-approved mortgage expert is on hand to support you through LiveChat, email, or over the phone anytime.
Thanks to the platform and the expert Advisors using it, we can knock weeks off your mortgage lead time!
3. How it works
One of the most time-consuming and irritating elements of going through the traditional mortgage process is filling in questionnaires, bouncing between calls and emails, translating complicated jargon, and gathering documents. After this tedious and time-consuming bit is finished... comes the wait. And we all know that time moves slower when you’re waiting.
So, how does the Mortgage Propeller platform make things better?
Complete transparency. Track your application in real time! and access your application anywhere, anytime.
Select your Broker. Create your account, complete basic details, and select a Mortgage Broker in your area.
Just the essentials. We've only included the essentials in our application, this part should only take you 20 minutes to complete.
Goodbye Paperwork. Upload your essential documents, complete your application online, and say goodbye to paper forms.
Jargon-free. Fly through your application thanks to our simple 'information icons' which will explain each section.
Manage Payments. If the Mortgage Advisor you've connected with charges a fee, you can do this simply over the platform, however many of our Advisors don't charge fees.
Speed. Because you've already completed your information in advance of match-making, your mortgage conversations and the journey will move much faster.
Let's break it down. Exactly what will happen?
1. Create your Mortgage Propeller account here. This means you can hop back into your application anytime, and share your details with a partner if you're completing a joint application.
2. Once you've created your account you'll need to complete some basic details (it will only take 1 minute.. less!) and then select a Mortgage Broker in your area. View their details, location, and confirm your choice, you'll also be able to send them an introductory message.
3. Next, while you're waiting for your Mortgage Broker to get in touch (it won't be long), you will be taken to your very own dashboard, this is where you begin filling in your application, you'll hear this referred to as the 'Fact Find'. You can get a head-on start on this while you wait.
3. This is a much more refined and smooth process when compared to the 30 pager questionnaire usually supplied, it should take you 20 minutes to complete (depending on your circumstances).
6. Your FCA-approved Mortgage Broker will give you a call to discuss your situation, and review all your details in the Fact Find. In no time at all, they will assess if you'd be eligible for a mortgage. (They may also follow up with you by email, phone, or on the LiveChat feature.)
7. From here it will all happen pretty quickly for you, your Mortgage Broker will get your decision in principle, once you've found your dream home they'll be able to get you the best mortgage deal, and you'll have pure Mortgage Joy in no time!
Remember that if you’re having any trouble you can always reach out to us on Livechat or at firstname.lastname@example.org.
4. Founding story
Founded by Matt McAlister and Brendan Sheehy in January 2020, we’ve done a lot in the shadow of Covid-19; Secured investment, built a great team overflowing with talent, partnered with over 200 expert mortgage advisors from across the UK, and developed a technology solution that makes the mortgage application process fast and smooth.
Matt has an unusual story, about buying his first home with a credit card and the difficulty he got himself into trying to get a mortgage for that home. A decade later he and his wife sought a mortgage for their family home and witnessed how the archaic application process hadn’t changed. This is a decade where self-driving cars were no longer science fiction.
Matt watched his wife get upset following 3 months of email requests for ‘just one more thing’, almost cost them their home when the lender requested all new documents because the original paperwork was now out of date. Things had to change. So here we are. Changing things.
We believe the mortgage application process shouldn’t take the joy out of buying a home. If anything it should facilitate excitement and happiness in the anticipation of getting into your dream home. This is our core value and the foundation of our mission.
