Essent Launches EssentIQ™ To Help Educate First-Time Homebuyers

RADNOR, Pa.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Essent Guaranty, Inc., a nationwide provider of mortgage insurance (MI)
and subsidiary of Essent Group Ltd. (NYSE: ESNT), has launched EssentIQ,
the ultimate tool for loan officers wanting to reach the next generation
of homebuyers.

EssentIQ shows millennials and other first-time homebuyers how Essent MI
can help them start building home equity sooner by becoming homeowners

Its data-driven design creates real-life solutions in real time to:

  • show the opportunity cost of waiting to save 20% down vs. buying now
    with Essent MI
  • calculate the monthly payment for a loan with Essent MI
  • project how quickly homeownership will build equity and accumulate

EssentIQ also creates personalized presentations in an easy-to-read
format that can be saved, printed and shared.

“We designed EssentIQ specifically for loan officers as a way to start
conversations with millennials who may not be aware of the home buying
options that are available to them outside of the conventional 20%
down,” said Jeff Cashmer, Essent Guaranty’s chief business officer.
“EssentIQ also helps to make the case for homeownership by demonstrating
how it accelerates wealth accumulation versus waiting to save up a
larger down payment.”
