Closed in 16 Days! We were purchasing a home in a hot Seattle market so having the verified letter from Better was a big plus!

Their entire tech-enabled process enabled us to pounce immediately on the right opportunity, from a near real-time pre-approval letter we could present on through to the ability to close very fast.

From the pre-approval letter to closing, nothing but positive things out of Better Mortgage, truly lived up to its name. Thanks again for everything.
