Loans - 10 / 10

Lending Tree's wide network of lenders allows homeowners to access many different offers at once, making it easy to compare competing rates and terms. Borrowers only have to fill in the worth of their home, what they owe on their mortgage, and how much they'd like to borrow; and LendingTree matches them with up to five qualifying lenders. Whereas customers often have to get different quotes from different lenders for each loan product, LendingTree offers convenient access to home equity loans, HELOCs, and cash-out refinance all in the same portal.

No rates offered at all on-line -- what a scam!! I want to see rates BEFORE I waste time talking to potential lenders. Blowing up my phone line is NOT what I signed up for. Luckily I provided my landline, and they can all talk to my answering machine. Will not use again.

Gave all of this personal information for multiple sources of rates and they give me 1 source with one rate and the amount I "qualified" for was 5x the amount I needed. Now I'm going to get barraged by phone calls. Great. I should have read the comments.

I have to agree with what others have said regarding the immediate phone call assault! I submitted my too much information 45 minutes ago and have received no less than ten calls. Three of which came from the same person. And none of the organizations that called offer heloc. Wth? I have a better interest rate currently than what anyone can offer which is why I don't need a refi. I just set myself up for an assault by those who got my information. This site is nothing more than a hunting license. I was hopeful that it would be legit. It is if you want a refi. Just not a heloc.

Provides only ONE option for me and it's from a company that has LOTS of negative reviews. Everyone says beware of the company provided, claiming them to be scam artists. I am just looking for a simple home equity loan or HELOC on less than 25% of my equity and I have well over 720 credit rating and have paid my condo in full (no mortgage at all). What kind of service is that? Can't even leave a review because this review site has been blacklisted through Facebook.

I just went on to lending tree and entered all the required information name DOB, address, last 4 of my social, email phone number and all, only to be directed to call each one of the lending institutions to get my rate quote. What kind of service is that? I thought you were supposed to see your rates after all that. This is great now everyone on this site and all the lending institutions they deal with have my info and I don't have a single offer. I did not want you to share my Info.

Got a call in seconds, told me they used their own capital, then after pulling credit report stated they want d to shop for a rate from other vendors. This after I ask do if they were the lender or a broker. Then they stated the did not do home equity which was what I applied for. Bait and switch, they even tried to sell me on financial planning. Don't use this site!

I requested information on a home equity loan and only after providing personal information received offers for only cash out refinance loans and a direct call from a lender even before the screen had time to load. A waste of my time.

I entered the extensive information on the site, only to have it say that they couldn't give me any rates. Then, literally 30 seconds after I entered my info with phone #, I got a call from BOTH LendingTree and Quicken trying to "verify my info" and have me speak to a loan officer before they could give out any info. Deceptive at best!

I was told my credit was 630 and my credit rate is 815. I do not know where you get your rates from but they are wrong . Check your credit rates again.

I had an amazing time getting a loan with Lendingtree. They made it easy, fast and affordable. I am definitely going to recommend them to all my friends and family. My wife is super happy too and I'm not paying a crazy interest rate.
