WHY BROKER

Think outside the branch for your mortgage

Buying your first house and getting your first mortgage can be an overwhelming experience. Thanks to soaring housing prices in Toronto, many find the process of applying for a mortgage to be the most intimidating part.

While many turn to Canada’s big banks to help them secure a mortgage, refinance, or renew a mortgage, more and more people are turning to a mortgage broker. Why should you use a mortgage broker? Below is a list of some of the top reasons to choose a mortgage broker over a traditional bank or lender.

They Represent You

One of the top reasons to use a mortgage broker is that they are financial experts that work on your behalf and not on behalf of a particular bank.

A loan officer at a big bank works for just the one bank. And they get paid by the bank, either through commissions or salary, or a combination of both.

This means they will only recommend their own financial products to you, whether they suit your needs or not, just so they can sell something. Or, because they get a salary, they may not be looking out for your best interest.

Instead of being limited to one set of financial products from one lending institution, a mortgage broker works with hundreds of different lenders to make sure you get the best-priced, best-structured financial product possible. Moreover, they get paid a commission from the lender, not from you.

They Save You Time

What else does a mortgage broker do for you? A mortgage broker will help you save time and do all the legwork when it comes to paperwork and negotiating with a lender. On top of that, they can help you get preapproved for a mortgage. And, going forward, they can be your personal contact for everything related to your financing.

They Offer Lower Interest Rates

According to a Bank of Canada report, shopping around and negotiating skills are key to getting the best deals on a mortgage. The paper also noted that borrowers who use a mortgage broker pay lower rates .

Mortgage brokers have good relationships with a large number of different types of lenders and are able to negotiate lower rates.

They Let You Secure a Mortgage with Bad Credit

Because of stricter lending rules in Canada, it’s become difficult for those with bad credit, who are self-employed , have low or unstable income, have a short record of employment, or have declared bankruptcy to get a mortgage with a traditional lender.

Mortgage brokers can help those turned down by traditional lenders secure loans. That’s because they work with hundreds of different lenders and specialized institutions, many of which specialize in helping those with bruised credit get a mortgage.

They Help You Find the Best Mortgage Lenders

Mortgages are complicated; as a result, there is no one-size-fits-all approach. Everybody’s needs are different, and there is more to consider when getting a mortgage than just the interest rate. Do you want a variable or fixed mortgage? What is the amortization period and payment schedule?

Because mortgage brokers are independent , they are not limited to the products they can offer you. As your broker, they will find the best lender and mortgage product specifically designed for your needs, whether it comes from a Chartered Bank, Trust, Insurance Company, or private lender.

Banks do not have a network of lenders. Every home loan application the bank receives is from the same lending institution.

In Many Cases, There Is No Need to Pay a Mortgage Broker

Another benefit of using a mortgage broker is that, in most cases, you don’t need to pay for their services. Mortgage brokers receive a fee from the financial institution that arranged your mortgage.
