The BIFI Difference

BIFI was created by investors, for investors. While most loan servicers haven’t changed the way they operate in decades, BIFI assessed the “faults” and complaints from other investors and incorporated them into how we structured our business.

Here are just a few of the ways BIFI is making things better for investors.

1. We monitor property taxes and confirm yours are getting paid. Some servicers make the lender chase down the property tax information, even though this is a service that should fall under their servicer’s purview. 

2. We track fees that are reimbursable (like legal fees) and make sure they are returned to you. We don’t “forget” to put them in the system.

3. We make tax-time easier by itemizing all payables to the lender, defining which loan your money is coming from, and what the breakout for those monies are (principal and interest) which greatly impacts your books.

4. We hate getting the runaround too, which is why we stay on top of all foreclosure coordination and provide regular follow-ups with all parties so the ball is always moving.

5. Some servicers will happily charge upwards of 5X the price yet provide zero added value or special services. BIFI is price comparable and our services are exceptional.

6. We run a tight ship with a defined chain of command. This means you’ll always know who to contact when you need help or information.

7. We handle confirming borrower insurance for you, giving you hours of your time back.

8. We have an investors-first mentality and we don’t “throw things over the fence”, leaving you hanging for months on end. 

9. Our business is built around providing a top-shelf client experience we’d want to use ourselves. We stand for honesty, transparency, hard work, and dedication.
