Some of the main benefits of using a Mortgage Adviser are ;
The biggest advantage of using a mortgage adviser over going directly to your bank is the choice.
Sitting in front of a mortgage adviser is like sitting in front of 20+ banks with hundreds of loan products – rather than just options from one bank.
Even if you are set on using your current bank, a broker can still provide worthwhile benefits, by giving you advice on which product to choose from their range and liaising with them to ensure you get the loan when you need it.
Advisers deal with lenders on a day-to-day basis. They know what needs to be done for each lender to process your application smoothly and without delay. Banks and lenders change staff and rules regularly, so it is good to have someone whose job it is to keep up to date with changes.
They also act as your personal advocates with the lenders – so you can trust them to do everything that needs to be done to get you the loan you choose.
Following up the progress of your loan application is time-consuming and can be frustrating. A mortgage adviser will take over all follow-up and paperwork – so you don’t have to – and become the middleman between you and your chosen lender.
A good adviser will also keep you updated on the loan application at every stage, making sure the lender has everything they need to approve your loan.
Having access to a wide range of loan products means that mortgage advisers are focused on getting the right loan for your life, but this could also mean they are finding lower rates, loans with lower fees, or specific loan features to help you pay off your loan faster.
This would mean paying less in the long run, just for using a mortgage adviser instead of going directly to your bank.
No cost to you
The service that a mortgage adviser provides is usually at no cost to you, as the lender you choose will pay the adviser after your loan settles. This means that you have access to a service to get the best loan – and it won’t cost you a thing.
