By Megan Greuling

CHARLOTTE, N.C., (Aug. 1, 2013) — LendingTree today announced that it has released a series of award-winning educational videos which simplify the concepts related to financing a home for borrowers.  The seven-part video series covers a wide range of topics from mortgage qualification guidelines to an overview of loan types and mortgage terminology.

Each video ranges from one to three minutes in length and covers a specific "stage" in the mortgage process.  Users can watch the series inline to understand the entire homebuyer's loan process, or they can self-select by topic. LendingTree worked with San Francisco digital design agency EXTRACTABLE to produce the videos.  The video series recently won four Telly Awards in branded content and instructional video categories.

"LendingTree research shows that most borrowers find the mortgage process to be confusing and complex," said Fred Saunders, SVP, Marketing. "With the LendingTree Mortgage 101 videos, we wanted to answer typical questions and further educate consumers so they feel more confident in the mortgage process."

The seven-part video series can be seen on LendingTree.com or LendingTree's YouTube channel: http://www.youtube.com/user/lendingtree.
