3 Reasons to Use a Mortgage Broker (and 1 Reason to Choose Us)

So, you’re thinking of buying a home. Well, at least we think so because you’ve made it to this amazing page.


You’re likely thinking that this home buying thing is more confusing than you originally thought. That’s why we’re here to explain why using a mortgage broker can save you time, money, and headaches!


#1. We Don’t Work for Just the Bank


Here’s the thing. We are not anti-bank. Many banks and credit unions have good mortgage products and are overall good institutions.


But, your bank can only work with their mortgage products. That can limit your options if you don’t meet your bank’s criteria for lending. However, there are dozens of mortgage lenders across the country who specialize in just mortgages.


As mortgage brokers, we aren’t tied to one bank or one lender. After learning about your financial situation, we shop for the product that best fits your situation.


Oh, and we forgot to mention. We do this all for free.


We don’t get paid until your mortgage is funded and you’re moved in. At that point, we get paid by the lender.


#2. We Have Connections


Along with our multiple connections at banks and lenders, we also have close relationships with realtors, real estate lawyers, home inspectors, home builders, accountants, financial advisors, interior designers...anything to do with buying and owning a home, we’ve got you covered.


When you use a mortgage broker, you’re getting a team of people who are going to support your future; in finances and homeownership.


#3. We Keep Things Simple


We’ll be honest. Mortgages can sound like a different language; interest rate differential, amortization, accelerated bi-weeky. Combine that with all the moving parts of a mortgage and it can get really overwhelming, really quick.


Would you try to get a mortgage if you didn’t speak the language, relying only on Google Translate to help? We didn’t think so.


When you work with a mortgage broker, we’re your professional translators. Each step along the way, we’re letting you know what’s happening so you’re confident in your purchase.
