ATLANTA–(BUSINESS WIRE)–AmeriSave is doing even more than offering credit approval for mortgages in under three minutes. Now, homebuyers and home refinancers can also purchase and protect their homes and other household assets in mere minutes.
AmeriSave Mortgage Corporation, one of the nation’s fastest-growing privately held mortgage lenders, has launched AmeriSave Insurance Agency, in partnership with Hippo (NYSE: HIPO), the Silicon Valley-based home insurance group focused on proactive home protection, to provide a fast and easy way for homebuyers and homeowners to compare policies from dozens of carriers and get competitive pricing on a wide range of insurance products — homeowners, auto, boat, RV, umbrella, flood and more.
Obtaining home insurance is a critical step in the mortgage purchase process since homebuyers are required to have it before they can close on a home loan. But acquiring the necessary insurance has traditionally been a hassle, taking up to 30 minutes of filling out lengthy applications for each price quote.
With AmeriSave Insurance Agency homeowners can complete the entire purchase transaction in as little as four minutes. This is powered by Hippo’s proprietary technology which streamlines the process and eliminates antiquated steps.
“Homeowners need high-quality, trusted insurance products to protect their assets, but they want to obtain them efficiently and effectively,” said Doug Reynolds, President of AmeriSave Insurance. “The online platform we’ve created with Hippo streamlines the process by providing competitively priced insurance quotes from a range of brand-name carriers.”
“The launch of AmeriSave Insurance Agency is a continuation of our effort to provide value to borrowers throughout the mortgage process and make home ownership affordable and accessible,” said Mike Berte, President of AmeriSave Mortgage Corporation. “We are proud to partner with Hippo, with its proven track record as a high-quality, technology-enabled insurance provider, to meet our customers where they are to help them protect their most valuable asset, their homes.”
“Our partnership with AmeriSave is an important milestone for our fast-growing mortgage channel,” said Rick McCathron, CEO and President of Hippo. “Powered by modern coverage, smart home technology, and Hippo Home Care, Hippo is thrilled to help AmeriSave customers protect the joy of homeownership.”
A pioneer of digital mortgage origination, AmeriSave makes it easy to execute the loan process online and offers low rates for its different products, including conventional, jumbo, FHA, VA, and USDA loans. Many AmeriSave customers choose to “self-serve” all or most of their loan transactions with the company’s intuitive software that drives speed and significantly lowers the cost to produce a loan. In turn, AmeriSave passes the savings along to thousands of customers each month in the form of low rates.
