Why Choosing a Mortgage Broker is Key to Buying Your First Home

Buying your first home is a huge milestone, and it’s essential to take your time, explore your options, and make an informed decision when choosing a mortgage.

Questions like “How much will it all cost?”, “What can I afford?”, and “Where do I want to live?” are just the beginning. Unless you’ve recently won the lottery, you’ll need a mortgage to make your dream home a reality. That’s where a mortgage broker comes in!

Why Use a Mortgage Broker? Here are the Benefits:

Get Ready the Right Way

A good mortgage broker will have an initial chat with you to see if you’re ready to apply for a mortgage. The last thing you want is to approach a bank when you’re not prepared. Banks have strict lending criteria, and applying too soon can make future applications tricky. A broker will assess your readiness and guide you on how to get prepared, often within 3 to 6 months, with the right advice.

Hassle-Free Application Process

When you’re ready, your broker will handle the entire mortgage application process. They will package and present your application to lenders to maximize your chances of mortgage approval. Mortgage brokers follow up on your application, ensuring it doesn’t get stuck on someone’s desk. A speedy response can be the difference between getting your dream home or missing out!

One Point of Contact

From your first call to getting your keys, a mortgage broker will be your go-to person. No more being passed from Peter to Paula to Joe, who doesn’t have the answers. One person will oversee all your mortgage and insurance queries, providing all the help and advice you need, whether online, face-to-face, or via phone and email. This personalized service is priceless!

Mortgage brokers shop around to get you the best deal on your mortgage and insurance. This is a given with brokers like MortgageLine, but what sets us apart is our superior service. We are 100% focused on getting you the best mortgage approval and making the entire process as painless as possible.
