Why Use A Broker ?

If your buying a home, chances are you’ll need a mortgage, but did you know there are big differences between mortgage brokers and bank loan officers.

The loan officers at a bank, credit union or other lending institution are employees who work to sell mortgages and other loans originated by their own employer only.

Mortgage Brokers are professionals who are paid a fee to bring together lenders and borrowers.
Services to clients are however offered free of charge. A good Mortgage Broker can work with dozens of lenders, not as employees, but as freelance agents. Think of Mortgage Brokers as scouts. They find and evaluate home buyers, analysing each person’s credit situation to determine which lender is the best fit for that persons needs.
