It is currently the only app that helps landlords find the latest buy-to-let products based on their specific financial circumstances and property requirements.
Designed and built by Mark Ryan, head of IT development, Buy To Let is based on Mortgage Flow, MFB’s in-house buy to let mortgage sourcing tool, which provides an up-to-date list of all the latest buy to let products on the market.
David Whittaker, managing director, said: “There’s no other app like it. It not only puts us ahead of our competitors, it provides real-time product information to busy landlords who are increasingly using smartphones to manage their portfolios and property finance requirements.
“Last year our metrics showed that around 10% of our landlord contacts were using iPhones and iPads to access our website and read our marketing emails.
“This year that figure has zoomed up to 33%. So we’ve built this app to ensure they can access essential buy to let rates anytime.”
“It’s really easy to use and you can play around with the financial variables to ascertain loan amounts and rent requirements. It also lets you refine the search to find products suitable for HMOs and limited company applications.”
As well as the search facility, the app contains a portfolio manager which allows landlords to keep a detailed record of their properties, set mortgage review reminders and link to the best remortgage rates for each property.
The app is available for download from the App Store (simply search for Buy To Let) or via the iTunes website: http://itunes.apple.com/us/app/buy-to-let/id545679085
