Posted in:

Despite unsettling news in the mortgage industry and the economy, First Internet Bank of Indiana (First IB) is committed to the expanding the dream of home ownership in Central Indiana through its local participation in an exciting national mortgage initiative. First IB is a member of Lenders One Mortgage Cooperative, a national alliance of leading mortgage bankers and each member of the alliance is contributing to Lenders One’s 30-day, $3 billion dollar loan origination challenge.

Recent reports in the media indicate that unemployment and the mortgage meltdown are key factors stifling consumer confidence. However, David B. Becker, President of First IB, said he remains optimistic about home ownership opportunities and about the mortgage industry in Central Indiana.  Although mortgage market volumes are declining in some markets, First IB, based in Indianapolis, and Lenders One nationally, are aggressively making home loans and expanding the dream of home ownership.

“We are pleased to participate in the originations challenge because of what it is designed to do, focus on what we are able to do in communities we serve,” said Mr. Becker. “This will help mortgage professionals restore trust.”

Lenders One plans to accomplish its goal with the origination of a wide variety of loans including, conventional, FHA, VA, jumbo and specialty loans that are purchase, refinance and new construction loans. The cooperative membership will meet the challenges by originating loans throughout the country and First IB is helping them meet the challenges in Central Indiana.

“This challenge was born out of a need to put faith back into the lending process and to show the industry as well as consumers that it’s not all gloom and doom in the mortgage arena,” said Scott Stern, CEO, Lenders One. “We are very pleased to work with First IB in Central Indiana.  As a member of Lenders One, First IB has already distinguished itself as a leading mortgage banker in the United States.  By virtue of their participation in the $3.0 Billion Mortgage Challenge, they are meeting the needs of homeowners throughout Central Indiana precisely when homeowners need it most.”

Lenders One has more than 110 mortgage banker members across the country. The power of the partnership improves the efficiency, productivity and profitability of each member. The cooperative’s goal is to increase its total membership to 130 lenders this year.

Best Lender Experience - Ryan, Arizona

“This was the first time I've used an online lender and I would definitely use First IB again...The local lenders warned that I wouldn't get personal service using an online lender and warned me against it. I'm glad I ignored them because my experience was one of the best I've had with a lender. I wouldn't hesitate to use this lender again!“
