To help reduce physical contact with other’s devices we recommend encouraging your customers to use their own device or computer to apply using the Online Loan Application.

Finally, we wanted to make you aware of some pricing updates in the NARI BuildingBucks program. We’ve introduced various promotions, such as temporary reductions in dealer fees on several of our loans, including Same-As-Cash and Zero Interest Loans. These types of loans are great tools for helping homeowners complete a project now and pay for it later. We’ve also lowered fees on several other popular loans. Check PartnerPortal for all your updated rates.
