Choosing the Right mortgage Broker or Agent for You!
When it comes to buying a new home, the process of securing the mortgage can be daunting. Not only will you want the best interest rate, but also the right product and terms for your specific needs. With multiple lenders offering different options, it can quickly become overwhelming.
A professional mortgage broker can help with this process by matching you with the most suitable mortgage solution. With so many brokers to choose from in the GTA—how do you choose? Here are five things to look for when hiring a mortgage broker:
Responsive: You’ll want to work with a broker who is professional and prompt in responding to your questions. Quick responses indicate that the agent has your best interests at heart, so you can be sure you are on the right track.
Knowledgeable: An excellent mortgage broker will provide you with the education you need to make a smart and informed decision about your financing. A reputable broker will offer advice that is in line with your best interests and work with multiple lenders, local real estate agents and lawyers when you need them.
Personable: When choosing a mortgage broker, be sure to check out their customer reviews and ratings. You want someone who is easy to talk to and can explain everything in a clear way. Be sure to ask lots of questions and feel free to finally say no if you don’t completely trust your broker.
Honest: If you’re going to seek a mortgage, you need to know that a broker’s priority is your needs. The best way to ensure this is to get full disclosure upfront, with no hidden fees. As part of your consultation with a broker, you should be informed about all the costs involved and which costs will apply to you.
Finally, before you commit to a big decision, sit down and interview the broker. If they don’t seem like the right fit for you, wait until you find a person who is more suited to your needs. Trust your instincts—they can save time and money in the long run.
