OCCU and Blend announce partnership

EUGENE, OR (November 4, 2022) — OCCU is partnering with Blend Labs, Inc., to implement industry-leading cloud-based mortgage lending software to provide seamless digital home loan and refinancing services to OCCU members.

Homebuyers and mortgage loan originators can now conduct many of the financial steps required to purchase a home online and remotely, including income verification, signing, notarization and closing. In addition, homeowners undergoing refinancing will be able to compare rates and products quickly and efficiently.

Blend’s products provide a simple and easy-to-understand digital interface that is both more convenient and results in fewer errors than older systems. What’s more, Blend’s high level of automation promotes speedy and accurate processing. This makes homebuying and refinancing processes more accessible than ever before for OCCU members.

“With Blend, OCCU is poised to expand our mortgage lending and refinancing to new areas while providing the best in-market applicant experience to members,” said OCCU VP of Mortgage Lending Lindsey Roberts. “The fact that Blend is the best fit for OCCU’s needs is just icing on the cake!”
