Over One Third of Borrowers Compare the Mortgage Process to Going to the Dentist

According to the Inaugural FREEandCLEAR Mortgage Survey

FREEandCLEAR is excited to release the initial thought-provoking results from its inaugural Mortgage Survey.  The mortgage survey provides an insightful analysis of how borrowers think about, experience and understand the mortgage process.

34% of borrowers said the mortgage process was most similar to going to the dentist

Over one third of borrowers compared their mortgage experience to going to the dentist

The initial results of the FREEandCLEAR Mortgage Survey explore critical issues including the borrower experience, mortgage challenges and lender trust.  You can view the survey results at: https://www.freeandclear.com/community/mortgage-survey.html.

Some of the more compelling findings from the survey include:

FREEandCLEAR commissioned the third-party survey to continue to enhance our understanding of mortgage borrowers.  The better borrowers understand the mortgage process and the better lenders understand borrowers, the better the results for everyone, which is the ultimate goal of the survey and FREEandCLEAR.

The full results of the FREEandCLEAR Mortgage Survey will be revealed over the next several months.  Future releases of survey results explore important topics such as Lender Selection, Borrower Education and How to Improve the Mortgage Process.

We encourage you to review and share the results of our survey with your colleagues and friends.  We also invite you to send us your feedback as well as any ideas on how we can improve future surveys (this is only the beginning!).  Thank you for reviewing the FREEandCLEAR Mortgage Survey — we hope you find it as informative and entertaining as we do.
