Instant Home Loan Pre-approval Now Available On Zillow Mortgages And Zillow Real Estate Apps On Iphone, Ipad And Ipod Touch – Yahoo Finance

Home Improvement Retailers: Investing Essentials –

“Home buying can be extremely competitive today due to inventory shortages. Having the ability to get a pre-approval letter instantly can make the difference between getting the home or losing it to a buyer who is better prepared,” saidErin Lantz, vice president of mortgages for Zillow. “With this tool, we are able to streamline the pre-approval process from days to minutes. Securing pre-approval shows real estate agents that a buyer is serious, and it provides our users an enormous advantage when searching for a home.” Zillow operates the most popular suite of real estate apps across all major platforms, with dedicated apps for home shopping at every stage: home buying, selling, renting, financing and remodeling.

The financial health of home improvement retailers is clearly linked to prospects for the housing industry generally. When home prices are rising and building activity is strong, greater demand from professionals coincides with greater willingness on the part of homeowners to tackle do-it-yourself projects or contract for renovations and remodeling services. To some extent, though, weakness in housing doesn’t automatically translate to weakness for the home improvement sector.
