What is a home loan broker and why use one?
Matching you with a great home loan
Conducting a property inspection is just one of the many steps on your journey to purchasing property. And getting an inspection is easy—just call us up, and we’ll do the rest!
But what about shopping for a home loan? It’s not just a matter of going to your everyday bank and applying for a loan. These days, there are many lenders in the market, each offering what seems like hundreds of loans and loan features.
However, rather than making your decision easier, this extra choice can make the process of choosing a home loan seem more difficult and daunting.
So how do you discover the right loan for you? That’s where home loan brokers come in.
What do home loan brokers do?
Put simply, home loan brokers do most of the legwork for you. They comb through lenders and their products to find a loan that is an ideal match for you and your financial situation.
What are some of the things a home loan broker will look at?
- Credit history
- Bank statements
A good home loan broker will look at your application in extra detail to make sure that your positive financial aspects are not hidden and ignored.
How to pick a home loan broker?
A home loan broker can help you pick the right loan. But it’s also matter of picking the right broker!
Here are some things you can do to make sure that you find a professional and quality broker:
- Do your research. Are they licensed? Are they professional? Do others recommend them?
- Call them up. Calling them up will give you a good indication of their level of customer service. It will also establish what they can do to help you.
- Follow them on social media. Still not sure? Then follow them on social media. A good business will be active, answer customer questions and post interesting and useful information.
