Google Launches Mortgage Search Engine In California

Home buyers in Southern California have yet another place to search for mortgages, as of yesterday: Google. Google said it has rolled out a new mortgage comparison tool, Google Compare for U.S. mortgages, allowing buyers in the Golden State to shop around for a mortgage, finding the best rates, and allowing users to apply using their smartphone or desktop computer for those mortgages. Google has tied into existing, mortgage search providers Zillow and Lendingtree to power the new service.
