Why Use a Mortgage Broker?

There was a time when the banks were of the opinion that they “owned” their customers and that mortgage brokers were only a last resort for clients not qualifying under conventional standards. But times have changed and home buyers in every bracket are seeking the help of a professional mortgage broker. Whether you are buying a home or renewing a mortgage, consider putting a mortgage broker or agent to work for you.

Home Purchases

With any major investment – your home being one of the largest – it is important to do your research and shop around for the best solution. This is exactly what a mortgage broker does. A skilled broker will work to understand their clients’ needs, shop all the banks and come back with options that best meet the long and the short-term objectives of the client. This will save you time and money and give you piece of mind when purchasing or refinancing your home.
Using an independent mortgage broker not tied to any one financial institution is absolutely in the best interests of the consumer. Because they are not limited to one institution, they will be able to find you the best product for your financing needs. With over 400 mortgage products on the market, this takes the guesswork out of getting a mortgage.

Using the services of a mortgage broker costs the client nothing in the vast majority of cases*. The lender pays the broker for placing the mortgage with them. A broker is paid on the size of the mortgage, not the rate. Getting the best rate for the client is in the best interests of the broker.

Debt Consolidation

Drowning in debt? If you have available equity in your home, mortgage brokers can help you consolidate your bills and free up extra cash. It just makes sense to pay off those high interest loans and credit cards into one monthly payment. As of July 2012 the amount you can refinance decreased from 85% to 80% of your home’s value. If you do not qualify for conventionally insured products, Mortgage brokers also have access to “B” lenders (alternative lenders for higher risk clients) that may look at your mortgage at a slightly higher rate. If you have debts that have went to collection, your mortgage professional may also be able to negotiate a settlement amount.

*In some cases broker fee may be charged for unconventional financing, this is disclosed prior to financing.
