The 2021-2022 Mutual of Omaha Mortgage project is focused on innovating across the home search process by providing a video-first home search experience for potential application users. Mutual of Omaha Mortgage’s goal is to provide a seamless process for homebuyers to find homes on their application and direct them to apply for a mortgage with the company. By organizing both processes on the same application, they can compete with home search platforms such as Zillow and Redfin. Additionally, with users having the capacity to list their own homes for sale in-app, this reduces the need to rely on a real estate agent and provides more savings for the homebuyer and home seller. Through development of this application, Mutual of Omaha Mortgage will lay the foundation for the creation of an application ecosystem that will be the all-in-one platform for helping users manage their finances and their home owning experience.
