Wait, who’s Nest Mortgage, you may ask? Well, for now, it’s just me, Beto, and a small team of awesome Texas folks who have dedicated their time to helping me out. Special shout out to Joel Rojo, Israel Matos, and Youssef Chaker for helping contribute their engineering and design chops to Nest Mortgage
I created Nest Mortgage because applying for and closing on a mortgage is just too damn hard . In all seriousness, the gigantic mortgage industry relies on ancient technologies to serve a massive market that, more or less hates using its product. That’s about to change.
In the software world, we call the first critical build the MVP or minimum viable product. This is where we try to tackle the biggest problem in the smallest amount of effort in order to gain critical feedback. Nest Mortgage’s MVP will focus on the document submission process which currently involves ancient websites, loan officers using stone-aged software, and fax machines from the 1980s (we assume). We’re going to take that headache and stick it into an easy-to-use web app.
Stay tuned for more!
