Choosing a Home Mortgage Lender
Choosing which home mortgage lender to use can be a complicated and stressful process. Here is what you need to do before you start looking for a home mortgage lender:
- Assess your financial situation and try to strengthen it if possible. Check your credit score.
- Determine your budget and how much you can realistically borrow from a mortgage lender.
- Thoroughly research your mortgage lender options and compare rates. Read the small print.
Another aspect that you need to consider is that there are basically two different types of mortgage lending. You can get a loan via:
- Direct lenders: banks and credit unions that offer a variety of loan options directly to the customer. Solutions and mortgage lending rates can differ greatly from bank to bank. This is the traditional way of seeking a loan, which may take a lot of time and effort.
- Mortgage brokers: people or companies that research the loan market for you, to assess the best loan option that best fits your requirements, and then submit the loan application to direct lenders for you. They obviously ask a fee for their services. It is worth remembering, however, that they may collaborate only with specific banks and within specific cities so they might not always select the best option.
