Title: FICO Transitions to Unified Pricing Model for Mortgage Lenders, Departing from Tier-Based Structure
In a significant development impacting mortgage lenders, FICO has announced its plans to shift from a tier-based pricing structure to a unified pricing model, set to begin in 2024. This change will override the system the company introduced in early 2023 and is likely to have substantial implications for the industry.
Key points from the text include:
• FICO’s new pricing model: FICO, a leading credit scoring company, will implement a standardized pricing approach for all mortgage lenders.
• Departing from tier-based structure: The company is moving away from the previous tier-based pricing model, which accounted for varying pricing levels based on lender categories.
• Higher cost implications: Although the text acknowledges only a price increase without specifying figures, it suggests that the unified pricing model will result in higher costs for all mortgage lenders.
• Industry impact: This move by FICO is expected to have far-reaching effects on the mortgage industry, potentially altering lender strategies and customer terms in the process.
• Implementation timeline: The new pricing system is set to take effect in 2024, allowing lenders sufficient time to prepare for the operational adjustments it may entail.
