iscover Websites. The company also markets home loans to non-Discover customers through direct mail, Internet advertising, including search engine marketing, display banners, Internet lead aggregators, rate tables on financial Websites and social media. Consumers can apply for or obtain information about home loans by mail or online, or they can speak directly to a dedicated mortgage banker over the phone. Loans are funded and closed using proceeds principally from borrowings under a third-party warehouse line of credit. Substantially all funded loans and the related loan servicing rights are sold to investors in the secondary market, generally within 30 days of funding. The proceeds from such sales are used to repay borrowings under the warehouse line of credit. In addition to funding loans, the company offers escrow and title services to home loan customers. The company offers closed-end home equity loans to help consumers improve their homes, as well as payoff higher interest debt. These loans are fixed term and rate loans that provide consumers the stability of a fixed payment on their obligation while being secured against the equity in their homes. The company markets this product primarily to existing card customers through a mix of direct mail, Internet advertising and email. Non-Discover customers can obtain information regarding Discover home equity products on its website and have the ability to apply by calling a personal banker.
