It’s Time to Get Certified

Posted by Plaza Correspondent on February 2, 2021

It’s Double-Witching time for correspondents. Veteran staffers are overworked and overwhelmed. Sales and closing are the priorities (loss mit and QC, less so.) Next thing you know, there comes the surge of errors, buyback demands and scary trips to the scratch & dent market.

But not for Plaza Home Mortgage® Correspondents – at Plaza, we understand your market and business challenges and apply our Certified Loan Program to every loan we purchase to protect you from direct loss from a repurchase demand that is tied to certain fraud, underwriting errors or manufacturing defects – even if it’s COVID-related – at no additional upfront cost.

Forget the “scratch and dent” markets and apply to “Get Certified” today! There’s no better time than now to get the insurance you need with service you can trust.

Learn more about the value of Plaza’s Certified Loan Program and how it can protect its client-sellers by contacting your Plaza Account Executive or emailing us at hereforyou@plazahomemortgage.com.
