CHARLOTTE, NC (March 29, 2010) – LendingTree, the online lender exchange that has already helped more than 27 million customers get the right loans, today announced the launch of its Mortgage Rate Alert service. The free service takes the legwork and stress out of knowing when the right time is to lock in a mortgage by alerting customers the moment rates drop below their “target point.” Rates provided are the lowest current rates from LendingTree’s network of lenders. To view the LendingTree Mortgage Rate Alert please visit: www.lendingtree.com/ratealert

“When it comes to mortgage rates, there is often a magic number consumers are looking for before committing to refinancing or purchasing a home. The problem is, with consumers’ busy, fast-paced schedules not everyone has time to regularly check rates, and in today’s market, rates are incredibly volatile” said Mona Marimow, SVP of Marketing for LendingTree. “With the mortgage rate alert you can stay up-to-date without lifting a finger.”

How it works:

The LendingTree Mortgage Rate Alert is a simple, easy and hassle-free service. You simply enter your email address and a target mortgage rate. Then LendingTree emails you when rates hit or drop below your set target.  Customers receive a maximum of 1 Mortgage Rate Alert email per week.
