What exactly can a mortgage broker do for you? Well, we don’t mean to toot our own horn, but we can make your home loan journey a whole lot easier, letting you focus on the fun part: planning for your new home!
The words “home loan application process” can strike fear in the hearts of many.
Trawling through different loan products is a time drain. The bureaucratic tape can be a headache. And let’s not forget banks scrutinising your finances.
But it doesn’t have to be a drag.
The majority of home loan seekers have now cracked the code: turning to mortgage brokers to help them land a loan.
In fact, between July and September 2023, mortgage brokers wrote 71.5% of all new residential home loans in Australia, according to the MFAA.That’s the second-highest mortgage broker market share the industry has ever recorded.Let’s find out why so many Australians have jumped on the broker bandwagon.
1. We do the legwork for you
Let’s face it, life gets busy. You’ve probably got a million things on your plate.
Carving out time to deep dive into home loan products across lenders can be tough. And often overwhelming.
Mortgage brokers can take that tedious task off your hands – we can assess your situation and find home loan options to suit you and your goals.
We’ll even lodge paperwork and apply on your behalf, then chase things up to ensure everything goes as smoothly as possible.
And fret not: all brokers are bound by a best interests duty.
That means we’ll always put your best interests first – not ours nor the bank’s!
2. We could help boost your chances of success
When looking around for a loan, having a knowledgeable professional on your side could be a game-changer.
We can explain the whole home buying and loan process, which is particularly helpful if you’re a first-home buyer or if it’s been a while since you’ve applied for a mortgage.
We know the application process inside and out and can prime you to have your paperwork and finances ready to roll the moment the perfect property comes along.
We have a wide range of lenders within our network – potentially providing you with access to a variety of home loan options across different banks and lenders.
Whether your financial situation is complex or straightforward, we can use our panel of lenders to help you find a suitable loan. We can also let you know which lenders have a history of approving applications similar to yours.
This potentially cuts down on countless hours trawling through lender websites for the right type of home loan. It may also lower your risk of rejection, which can negatively impact your credit score.
3. You’ll get continued support
Once you’ve been approved for a home loan, the party doesn’t stop there.
We can continue to support you by regularly reviewing your rate with your bank on your behalf.
That way you can avoid the “loyalty tax” – where new customers tend to get the lower rates.
You can contact us any time with any questions you may have. And when you’re ready to refinance, unlock equity in your home, or anything else finance-related, we’re here to help.
