How Amerivalue’s mortgage service compares to its competitors

Amerivalue’s mortgage marketplace can save you time in your search for a lender by having banks send their offers to you. But it falls a little short when compared to its competitors. While other marketplaces work with top lenders and have lists of over 1,500 to choose from, Amerivalue’s service only presents your financial details to a network of under 200.

The Amerivalue network is also limited to 31 states, where competing marketplaces can offer loans to borrowers nationwide.

Amerivalue reviews and complaints

Amerivalue has very few online reviews. But LeadPoint, the company that owns Amerivalue, is rated A+ by the Better Business Bureau (BBB) where it’s been accredited since 2006.

Three complaints and seven customer reviews stand on the BBB website around getting spam emails from Amerivalue. This is common when marketplaces share your info with multiple lenders.

Pros and cons of Amerivalue

Amerivalue has a simple interface that offers some benefits. But its simplicity leaves so much unknown that it may send you looking for an alternative.

Pros

  • Quotes from multiple lenders. Get quotes from up to five lenders at once, saving you time from applying to each one individually.
  • No hard pull. Get lender quotes without using your Social Security number, so there’s no hard pull on your credit.

Cons

  • Potential spam. Customers report that they received phone calls and email spam from the company’s owner, LeadPoint.
  • No visual comparison. Unlike other lender marketplaces, there’s no central hub where you can see all lenders, compare lender reviews or check the interest rates you’re eligible for.
  • High credit-score requirements. To get a quote, you need to have a credit score of 680 or higher. To compare, many lenders require a credit score of 620 for most loan products.
  • Fees and rates unknown. Each lender has a different qualification process, and you may not know your true fees and rates until well after you apply or go through the lender’s prequalification process.

What is Amerivalue?

Amerivalue isn’t a direct lender. Instead, the company connects potential homebuyers with lenders from the SecureRights network, which works with almost 200 lenders. But submitting your phone number and email gives your consent to receive marketing alerts.

LeadPoint, Inc, the site’s parent company, has had several legal issues since 2008. Its license was revoked in Indiana, and it allegedly sold customer leads to advertisers that were not licensed as deposit originators in California.

In 2011, LeadPoint paid $20,000 in fines in New Hampshire for brokering mortgages without a license. And in 2020, the company had to pay a $10,000 fine for acting as a lead generator in Connecticut without a proper license.

Expert review

If you have good credit and live in one of the states where Amerivalue’s network is licensed, this marketplace can save you some time by having lenders bring their offers to you. But the offers you get come from a limited lender pool, and you can expect marketing phone calls, mailers and emails after you apply. If you’re interested in using a marketplace that protects you from spam, you may want to consider a different service provider.
