First Federal Lakewood Simplifies the Entire Mortgage Experience with New SimplyMortgage Digital Application


First Federal Lakewood, the largest independent depositor-owned bank headquartered in Ohio, has launched SimplyMortgage, a new digital application that provides a faster, easier mortgage experience.
SimplyMortgage is a secure digital application that can be accessed whenever and wherever customers want on any device, while eliminating piles of paperwork and a long application process when purchasing a home or refinancing.
The application guides users through each step of the loan application. It even allows them to provide supporting documentation electronically and instantly verify income, assets, bank statements and credit directly through the application to make the process easier while also helping make approval faster.
Users can apply in a matter of minutes and get pre-qualified right away. They can also review their application and see open and completed tasks before submission, all within the SimplyMortgage portal. The application uses advanced security and the latest technology to ensure information remains safe and secure.
“Applying for a mortgage should be easy and straightforward—not a complicated, cumbersome process with a lot of paperwork and distant support. SimplyMortgage truly does make for a simpler mortgage experience and helps customers get into their new home sooner or refinance faster,” said Thom Rankin, SVP, Chief Mortgage Officer. “Plus, our experienced team of local mortgage professionals is here to meet face-to-face or over the phone at any point, ready to provide the personal support that sets First Federal Lakewood apart.”
