A start-to-finish solution

Home buyers need lots of support on their journey. From title companies and loan officers to home warranty providers and appraisers, the average buyer works with 10 or more vendors from start to finish.

Vendor Surf, a newly launched mortgage search engine, makes finding and hiring these vendors easier than ever. Users can find providers in 75 categories, filtering by location, product, service and even loan type. They can also track their search history and save preferred vendors to their dashboard for easy access.

First-time home buyers: Picking the right mortgage loan

According to Craig Leabig, co-founder of Vendor Surf, the tool can help both home buyers and vendors alike.

“We view Vendor Surf as a game changer not only for those searching for the perfect vendor, but also for the vendors who are listed on the site,” Leabig said. “It’s a strategic advantage for them to be listed on Vendor Surf as it is a means to differentiate their businesses while reaching a broad, new universe of potential customers.”

Vendor categories include: construction loans, home warranty, appraisals, flood services, insurance, property tax services, inspections, notary services and many more. There are also vendors specific to buyers in the secondary and investment markets.
