Corporation (MGIC), the nation's largest private mortgage insurer, announced
today the availability of MGIC mortgage insurance rates and eligibility to
lenders through LoanSifter, the leading provider of product eligibility and
pricing solutions for the mortgage banking industry.

The MISMO-based integration allows LoanSifter users to seamlessly check MGIC's
pricing and eligibility without having to leave LoanSifter's Best Execution MI

exceeds 80% loan-to-value (LTV). This fully automated two-way exchange of data
provides mortgage lenders with a more efficient and accurate lending process,
allowing them to close loans faster and achieve higher profits. The
integration builds upon an earlier partnership.

"Seamless access to MGIC's loan eligibility and competitive mortgage insurance
rates through LoanSifter enables our customers to more effectively streamline
their loan origination processes," said Sal Miosi, vice president of marketing
at MGIC. "MGIC's partnership with LoanSifter represents our dedication to
providing customers with easy access to our mortgage insurance programs."

"At LoanSifter we are thrilled to expand our relationship with MGIC," said
Bruce Backer, president of LoanSifter. "The ability for lenders to quote
mortgage insurance accurately and in real-time is becoming increasingly
critical during the origination process in order to satisfy ever-growing
compliance needs and borrower expectations. Our customer base now has instant
access to MGIC's loan eligibility and rates, alongside their product
eligibility and pricing."

"American Financial Resources is excited about this important integration,"
said Corey Dubnoff, president of American Financial Resources, Inc., a
LoanSifter customer. "Having the ability to check mortgage insurance rates
through MGIC within LoanSifter will not only help us respond to customers with
a quick, clear and concise mortgage insurance quote, but will also streamline
our overall pricing process while helping us stay compliant."
