The Peace of Mind mortgage enhancement product can deliver inexpensive protection and peace of mind for tens of millions of U.S. homeowners by providing a means to reduce the PRIMARY RISK to what is often their MOST VALUABLE ASSET – LOSS OF VALUE (equity) in their HOME due to local-market price volatility.
While our focus is homeowners, we serve all the major participants in the residential home finance market by reducing risk and providing tangible benefits – from individuals to lenders, servicers and originators.
This equates to less risk of borrower default (foreclosures), lower origination and servicing costs, increased affordability, the ability to expand loan volume to serve more Americans, and an overall stable home financing market. That’s good for everyone.
