Mortgage Brokers and Lenders: What's the difference  

One of the biggest headaches involved in buying a new home is finding the mortgage that is right for you. All too often, loan officers have limited options at their disposal. Why limit yourself like that, when a mortgage broker can bring so many different options to the table? Read on below to find out more.

The Basics About Bank Lenders

Generally, whilst walking into a bank you are going to be presented with a small handful of mortgage options. However, each available option will fall under the umbrella of the bank's particular terms. The bank will not reach out elsewhere in order to find you a financing deal that's right for you.

A bank really does limit your options in terms of finding a home loan. Some people immediately assume that their local bank is their best bet. While it may be true that you've done business with the bank in the past - and may even have accounts with them right now - that doesn't mean that they will be able to get you the best deal. You can be sure that the loan officer will tell you it's the best deal, but you'll have no basis for comparison. If you're fond of having options, then, bank lenders aren't right for you.

The Basics About Mortgage Brokers

As their name implies, mortgage brokers act as broker between you and a variety of different lenders. They cast a net that goes far and wide, reeling in a huge range of different loan products for you. Variety is the most important aspect of working with a mortgage broker. In the event you are determined to get the lowest possible interest rate whilst purchasing from Macarthur real estate agents or any other real estate Campbelltown, a mortgage broker should be one of your primary options.

Mortgage brokers don't just bring a huge range of options to the table for you - they also save you a whole lot of time and money. If you were to go from bank to bank, searching for the best mortgage, you'd be worn out in no time. One visit to a loan officer is usually enough to stress anyone out - the last thing that you need is four, five or even six visits to different banks! By working with a mortgage broker, you can easily simplify the process of purchasing a home by having access to a wide range of options without having to invest a great deal of time.
