Scotiabank has announced the addition of crucial enhancements to its digital mortgage platform, Scotiabank eHOME.
In the latest version of the portal, users can now – through just one platform – get mortgage pre-approvals, convert their pre-approvals to mortgage applications, and search for their preferred residential properties.
“We’re incredibly excited to bring Canadians a frictionless digital mortgage experience, no matter where they are in their home buying journey,” Scotiabank senior vice president of real estate secured lending Janet Boyle said.
“Whether you want a quick calculation on what you can afford, need an actual pre-approval with a decision, are browsing for homes, or found your dream home and need a mortgage – Scotiabank eHOME is with you anytime, anywhere, on any device.”
The property search function was devised in cooperation with the Canadian Real Estate Association.
“Canadians can now also search for properties within their pre-approval budget on REALTOR.ca, Canada’s largest real estate website, all from within Scotiabank eHOME’s digital platform,” the announcement added.
“People in the market for a new home visit multiple websites during their home buying journey – and not just real estate websites,” CREA vice president Patrick Pichette said. “This partnership with Scotiabank provides a great opportunity to further extend the reach of REALTOR® listings nationally and match home buyers with the right property at a key point in their home buying journey.”
