San Jose, Calif.-based wholesaler LoanCity is poised to announce the release of AU 2.0, a proprietary automated underwriting system that delivers recommendations and stipulations in the same format and time frame as Fannie Mae's Desktop Underwriter.The benefit Loan City claims for brokers is that they can underwrite everything but hardcore subprime loans without exiting one AU system to run loans through another. The company calls AU 2.0 "the next generation of automated decisioning," because it lets mortgage brokers upload files in three clicks and receive firm decisions "almost instantly." The company offers group loan programs in seven broad product bands: conforming, jumbo, expanded, alternative-A, alternative-B, FHA/VA, and seconds. Within each band, there are wide ranges of credit, property, underwriting, and documentation options. The company can be found online at http://www.loancity.com.
