At Better, we're making getting a mortgage fast, simple, and totally better.
From our offices in NYC we are revolutionizing a $12 trillion industry. Americans pay more for housing than for almost all other things combined – 33% of personal consumption expenditure. Yet somehow the mortgage process still takes nearly 50 days, costs over $5,000 in administrative fees, and requires over 225 pages of paper and endless phone calls with commissioned loan brokers. We think this is insane – so we’re fixing it.
Our team combines leading technologists from companies like Spotify and Google with a mortgage bank that has three generations of experience. Together we’re using data science, machine learning and UX design to make the mortgage experience what it should be -- an enjoyable and exciting part of the biggest transaction in most Americans’ lives.
