Initiate More Home Equity Lines of Credit

When it comes to marketing Home Equity Lines of Credit (HELOCs), WordCom now offers financial institutions a new marketing approach — through the innovative use of new mover data.

How great is the opportunity?
According to, approximately 36 million people move each year — and these movers spend, on average, more than $9,000 within the first three months. What’s more, it’s estimated that movers engage 71 new brands during their transition.

Through our LeadConnect add-on, we can help you leverage your own website by offering a HELOC to anyone who visits your home equity page — and spends more than a few minutes there.
