Somehow the mortgage industry seems to do a few things backwards. Why is the person who ultimately analyzes your documentation to insure it meets current lending guidelines most often the last person to see those documents? Nothing’s worse than taking the time to collect and send in your documents only to learn weeks later that “The Underwriter” needed more?
At Box Home Loans we’re different, we start with the Underwriting and here’s how it works. As you upload your documents electronically to your personalized “My Account Page” your Underwriter is automatically notified what documents you’ve sent that are ready for Underwriter Review. The ” My Account Page” also includes a list of all outstanding documents and third party items (like title and appraisal) that are updated real time as Underwriters review your file. Sending us your documents quickly and having our Underwriter approve them up front means you’ll quickly know if what you sent in meets guidelines. Sometimes our customers may be required to provide some additional clarifying documents. Knowing what’s actually underwriter approved or what else might be needed with real time updates throughout the loan process makes for a much better experience and helps us have our loans done an average of 5 days early.
While we may be doing things backwards in comparison to the rest of the lending industry, our customers love to start with underwriting first. It’s one of many ways it’s simply better “Inside The Box”.
What does it mean to be ‘Inside The Box’ at Box Home Loans? It means you have:
- Great Credit
- Minimum 3.5% down (or equity)

What’s Up With That Name?
Box Home Loans perfectly sums up what the company does because we only lend to customers with great credit. By lending exclusively to those who fit “Inside the Box” we have less variables to account which translates into Happy Customers getting better rates and lower fees. While the rest of the lending world boasts that they’ll finance anyone, Box Home Loans chooses to go in the opposite direction exclusively rewarding the financially responsible customers.
Our Low Costs: Almost Ridiculous
By lending only to the cream of the crop we have removed 50% of the paperwork and headache from the loan process. In addition, we only offer one product line: loans that require a 3.5% down payment and a 700 credit score. All of that leads to tremendous efficiencies in our process, which translates into unbelievable savings for you! In fact, we have cut loan closing costs by an almost ridiculous 68%. For example, Box Home Loans only charges $149 in total lender and broker fees on a conventional loan and only $199 on an FHA loan. No origination fees. No underwriting fees. No wire fees. No junk. And no, we do not raise your interest rate to make up for the low costs.
Following a Pattern of Excellence
Southwest Airlines did it with air-travel. Walmart did it with retail. And Ikea did it with furniture. Each of those companies revolutionized how business got done in their respective industry. By dramatically changing how they did business, they accomplished what was previously thought impossible: they slashed prices and created higher quality service at the same time. Box Home Loans is doing just that in the mortgage industry.
