布局抵押业务,房产门户Zillow收购贷款贷款信息机构

近日,房地产门户网站Zillow收购了Mortgage Lenders of America。这也是Zillow首次涉足抵押贷款发放环节。交易的财务细节尚未披露。

截至目前,Zillow在这个领域的重心是向购房者提供来自各种第三方贷款机构的报价。

鉴于Zillow近年来的发展轨迹,这一举动完全可以理解。该公司最近开始通过其Zillow Offers计划在一些选定的城市买卖房屋,因此,对于使用这个程序的买家来说,这就形成了一个闭环。

Mortgage Lenders of America(MLoA)是一家总部位于堪萨斯州的私人在线贷款公司。MLoA成立于2000年,目前约有300名员工,2017年共发放了4400笔按揭贷款。本次收购交易结束后(可能会在2018年第四季度),该公司将继续保留其堪萨斯总部,首席执行官Philip Kneibert将继续担任该公司的总经理,其产品也将继续出现在Zillow现有的抵押贷款市场。

而对Zillow公司来说,拥有一个抵押贷款机构将使该公司有机会开发更多的新工具和合作机会。

 

 

Zillow, the publicly traded real estate portal and lead generation service, has acquired Mortgage Lenders of America. This is Zillow’s first move into originating mortgages. Until now, the company’s focus in this space was on providing home buyers with quotes from a variety of third-party lenders.

The financial details of the transaction were not disclosed.

Mortgage Lenders of America (MLoA) is a privately held online lender based in Kansas. It will continue to operate as usual and will continue to appear in Zillow’s  existing mortgage marketplace, which isn’t going away either. “Owning a mortgage lender will allow Zillow Group to develop new tools and partnership opportunities, including for real estate brokers with existing in-house mortgage operations or mortgage affiliates,” the company says in today’s announcement.

Other lenders in Zillow’s marketplace may not feel the same way. MLoA originated 4,400 mortgage loans in 2017. The company argues that this leaves “plenty of opportunity for independent lenders to continue to advertise and build their businesses on the Zillow Group platform.”

In many ways, this move makes perfect sense, given the trajectory Zillow has been on in recent years. The company recently started buying and selling homes through its Zillow Offers program in a few select cities, so this closes the loop for buyers who are using this program.

“Getting a mortgage can be the toughest, most painstaking and time-consuming part of the home buying process,” said Greg Schwartz, president of media and marketplaces at Zillow Group, in a canned statement. “Now that we are buying and selling homes through Zillow Offers, we believe that having our own mortgage origination service as an option for consumers will allow us to streamline the process for people who buy a Zillow-owned home. Over time, we expect the work we do in conjunction with this new line of business will help us expand our offerings to our partners – including real estate brokers with existing in-house mortgage operations and third-party lenders who co-market with Premier Agents.”

MLoA was founded in 2000 and currently has about 300 employees. It will remain in its Kansas headquarters and its CEO Philip Kneibert will continue to lead the company as general manager after the deal closes, which will likely happen in the fourth quarter of 2018.
