Loan Prospector Loan Assignment ProcessSupport Your Business and Increase Your Efficiency in the Wholesale Channel provides choice and flexibility to support how third-party originators (TPOs), and wholesale lenders work together by offering greater efficiencies and improved data quality control.

With the flexible features of the Loan Prospector® assignment process, enables both TPOs and wholesale lenders to effectively manage how you work together in the wholesale channel. Wholesale lenders can provide outstanding customer service to their business partners, and TPOs, can easily share access to loan data with their wholesale lenders.


  • How Wholesale Lenders Benefit
    With your TPOs using the  Assignment feature, you can better manage delivery fees by ensuring that loans you deliver to Freddie Mac match the final Loan Prospector submission. Once you receive a final assigned loan, you know it is yours to process and only you or your mortgage service provider (MSP) can modify it, unless you Release it back to the TPO.

  • How Third-Party  Originators  Benefit
    You can receive a Loan Prospector assessment before assigning the loan to a wholesaler lender, which means you can submit a variety of scenarios to find the right loan and then assign it to the appropriate wholesale lender. Then use the  Assignment feature to notify the wholesaler lender that your work is completed.
