The article focuses on the availability of online lending applications. A survey of bank executives showed that they expected eventually to offer some kind of online mortgage application, however only 18 percent of banks now do. One stumbling block is that mortgages must be personally signed. The author mentions a 2008 survey demonstrating consumers' willingness to apply for a mortgage online.
