Mortgage Brain’s ‘find a broker’ app is out this month

Mortgage Brain plans to launch a mobile app with a ’find a broker’ feature this month.

The app is free of charge for consumers and will have a mortgage search facility which will direct users to their nearest broker. Mortgage Brain users can be featured on the app free of charge.

Mark Lofthouse, chief executive officer of Mortgage Brain, says: “There are few if any mortgage sourcing systems for mobile devices and there certainly aren’t any that have the facility to find a broker.

“What we are doing is a big advertisement for every broker in the country. We look at it as the Yellow Pages for them.”

The app will initially be launched for the iPhone and then on Android devices and iPads in a few months.
