Why Use a Broker/Banker?
Independent mortgage broker/bankers have access to both their own banking products and a large selection of direct wholesale lenders. This allows them to offer their clients a myriad of loan products and investors to choose from. Today, the use of a professional mortgage broker/banker is one of the key strategies for borrowers to have access to all their financing options while completing just one application.
What is a Mortgage Broker/Banker?
A mortgage broker/banker is a licensed independent real-estate financing professional who specializes in the origination of residential mortgage loans. A mortgage broker/banker works with (on average) as many as 40 lenders at any one time. By combining professional expertise with direct access to hundreds of loan products, your broker provides the most efficient way to obtain financing tailored to your specific needs.
What Do Mortgage Broker/Bankers Do?
In the volatile home-lending market, mortgage broker/bankers can serve as safeguards, offering their clients security, safety, and peace of mind. One of the broker's most important functions is escorting your loan application through the entire process - from the initial intake to the close of escrow, constantly checking to make sure everything goes smoothly.
A professional mortgage broker can wade through the mountains of rate data and program options, researching current market conditions to find the most accurate and up-to-date information about cost-effective loan options. Having access to both our own banking products and several wholesale investors we insure that you are acquiring the best loan product for your personal financial goals.
