Online Glossary Combats Mortgage Fraud

Words of the Week glossary tool at LoanPage.com offers list of mortgage terms to help consumers understand the loan process and avoid fraud

(Feb. 6, 2007) -- Mortgage loan fraud is on the rise, and that means homeowners need to educate themselves about mortgage terminology to avoid being victimized. LoanPage.com's Words of the Week tool offers a glossary to help potential homeowners learn how to choose the right lender and mortgage loan (http://www.loanpage.com/mortgage_terms.htm). LoanPage.com is a complete source of mortgage loan tools and lenders.

Mortgage loan fraud in 2006 rose 35 percent over the previous year, the Treasury Department's Financial Crimes Enforcement Network reports. Loan fraud can involve predatory lending schemes, inflating appraisals, property flipping or falsifying borrower income to qualify for home mortgages. Consumers can use the Words of the Week tool, articles and other resources at LoanPage.com to learn about the mortgage loan application process and avoid falling prey to fraudulent schemes (http://www.loanpage.com/mortgage_terms.htm).

"Buying or refinancing your home may be one of the most important and complex financial decisions you'll ever make. Many lenders, appraisers, and real estate professionals stand ready to help you get a nice home and a great loan. However, you need to understand the home buying process to be a smart consumer," says the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development.

LoanPage.com is the top home loan resource site and offers potential homeowners a wealth of information that can help them compare mortgage rates and choose the right lender. The comprehensive information at LoanPage.com includes:

  • Free loan quotes from various lenders
  • A tool to compare mortgage rates in different states
  • Mortgage loan calculators.
The booming real estate market has increased the potential for mortgage loan fraud, resulting in $1.014 billion in losses in 2005, up from $429 million in 2004, according to the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI). In many cases, mortgage fraud involves industry professionals, so it's important for homeowners to find a reputable lender who they can trust. LoanPage.com allows potential homeowners to compare lenders and learn more about the entire process of obtaining a home mortgage.

LoanPage.com is a complete source of mortgage loan tools and resources, including calculators and a mortgage glossary. Visitors can find answers to the most common loan questions, download a loan application or find lenders in their area.
