Guaranteed Rate Announces Quick Closing Times Despite New TRID Regulatory Process

CHICAGO, Nov. 19, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Guaranteed Rate, the eighth largest retail mortgage lender in the nation and an industry technology leader, announced its continued delivery of efficient and transparent closings compliant with the new TRID regulations, implemented by the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau.

TRID's implementation has the homebuyer in mind primarily with increased transparency in closing times and loan costs, commonly called the "Know Before You Owe" initiative. Guaranteed Rate recently launched the world's first Digital Mortgage and its increased convenience has helped homeowners close their loans in 30 days or less.

"Our Digital Mortgage was successfully put to the test with the new TRID regulations," said Victor Ciardelli, president and CEO of Guaranteed Rate. "We were ready for the TRID implementation and it has not slowed us down at all. Our loan officers have continued to close loans in less than 30 days."

Following TRID's implementation on Oct. 3, the closing process changed to increase transparency for consumers, such as receiving information three business days in advance of closing, more uniform disclosure of costs, and easier to compare early disclosure and closing disclosures. The digital communication platform offered by Guaranteed Rate helps manage the pre-closing communication, coupled with secure technology from DocuSign, Box and Optimal Blue.
