This article focuses on the mortgage information technology. The mortgage industry as a whole benefited from the countless hours invested designing technology and lobbying the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development to reform the Real Estate Settlement Procedures Act to allow consumers to shop for a lender by setting up a system for offering closing-cost packages at a single guaranteed price upfront. The proposed rule also attempted to deliver a simplified mortgage process for consumers but was never finalized.
