13 Mar How do mortgage lenders stand apart in a field of so many?
Homebuyers have a competitive market when choosing a mortgage lender. Have you ever wondered what could make your lending organization stand out from the rest in a field of so many? Here are a few ideas that can keep your lending organization at the head of the pack.
• Be easy to find. Most home buyers are shopping for mortgages online. Do you have an online presence? In addition to your website, you should explore social media channels to spread your influence among a wider audience.
• Give back to your community. Be a leader within the community by participating and donating to charitable organizations. Sponsor fundraising events for the greater good of the community.
• Be believable. Don’t just talk a good game. Demonstrate to your customers that you mean what you say when it comes to the customer being number one. Great customer service is more than just talk—the customer must experience it first-hand.
• Customer testimonials. Ask customers for their referrals. There is much to be said for the old familiar saying—the best advertisement is a satisfied customer. Customer testimonials can be added to your website as well as shared across social media. Sometimes, it does not hurt to toot your own horn!
• Provide the best product available at the most affordable price. Your customers want to save as much money as possible when buying a new home. This should be your goal as well. Your customers deserve no less than your best possible service to them.
