Loan Closing Made EasyQC.jpg

Buying a home just got easier thanks to Mountain America’s Quick Close electronic mortgage process.

In addition to managing your closing documents from home, you can enjoy that convenience throughout the entire loan process.
  • Apply Online—No need to call or come into the branch to start your mortgage. One click can put you on the path to homeownership.
  • Upload Documents—Now you can save a trip to the branch by uploading all of your key mortgage application documents, including paystubs and tax information, from your computer.
  • Green and Secure—At the end of a traditional loan process, you typically leave with a huge stack of paperwork. With Quick Close, only a handful of documents are printed. The rest are securely stored on a flash drive that you can take with you.
  • One Signature—Review the documents from home and then provide a digital signature at the title office. It’s applied to the mortgage, and you’re on your way in no time.
Take advantage of a mortgage process that is quick, convenient, simple and secure.
