Customer success stories

AmeriHome Mortgage Company

The challenge

AmeriHome’s previous LOS platform had some limitations such as flexibility, design, stability, and partnership/support. There was very less dependence on system so, they had to completely depend on the vendor for any alteration.

“We looked for a partner who could facilitate a complete platform change. With a business scale of 12,000 to 15,000 units per month, this was like changing the tires on an 18 wheeler at full speed. We decided on Ellie Mae once we saw that they had the infrastructure, scale, talent, and vision to help us overcome the challenges we faced.”

-John Hedland, COO and Managing Director

The solution

AmeriHome utilized the Encompass business rules functionality and overall flexibility to automate their review process. This contributed to a 14% average increase in production, and as an indirect benefit, significantly reduced IT and Business Support time in troubleshooting issues.

Columbus Capital Lending

The challenge

Columbus Capital was looking to reduce loan closing timelines, in the wake of new regulatory demands. Ellie Mae worked to support the company’s growth and streamline the entire loan process.

“Automation is the key to success and efficiency. The quicker you close a loan, the more people you can get into homes. Encompass is extremely powerful; it has the ability to do anything you desire.”

-Jorge Vidaurrazaga, VP of Information Technology

The solution

With the help of Encompass, Columbus Capital was reaching heights significantly. They developed personalized rules within the platform to assure that their loans were the best and fulfilled the regulations.

It was easier to get a jumbo mortgage in June this year than it has been in any month since 2011, according to a new report from the Mortgage Bankers Association.

The MBA released its latest Mortgage Credit Availability Index, a report that analyzes data from Ellie Mae’s AllRegs Market Clarity business information tool.

The report depicts that overall credit availability escalated slightly in June, meaning to say, credit became easier to obtain in June in comparison to May.

And while most categories saw slight increases, the availability of jumbo mortgage credit increased for the sixth straight month, rising to its highest level since 2011.

“Overall credit availability increased only slightly in June over May’s levels. Jumbo credit availability increased for the sixth month in a row and is at its highest level since 2011, when the survey began,” said Joel Kan, MBA’s associate vice president of economic and industry forecasting.

“Credit availability has generally increased in 2019 as lenders have worked to meet affordability challenges,” Kan continued. “Because mortgage rates have recently fallen and home price growth has decelerated in many markets, credit availability may stabilize at its current levels.”

According to the MBA report, the overall MCAI rose 0.2% to 189.8 in June. A decline in the MCAI shows that lending standards are tightening, while increases in the index shows the opposite.

Broken down by lending segment, the Conventional MCAI increased 0.3%, while the Government MCAI decreased by 0.1%. Of the component indices of the Conventional MCAI, the Jumbo MCAI increased by 0.6%, and the Conforming MCAI fell by 0.1%.

The Government MCAI looks at the loan programs of the Federal Housing Administration, Department of Veterans Affairs, and the Department of Agriculture, while Conventional MCAI examines non-government loan programs.

The Jumbo and Conforming MCAIs are a subset of the conventional MCAI and do not include FHA, VA, or USDA loans. The Jumbo MCAI examines conventional programs outside conforming loan limits, while the Conforming MCAI examines conventional loan programs that fall under conforming loan limits.
