This Week's Topic And Mortgage News and Events

 
Obtaining a mortgage is one of the most important decisions you may ever make, and with so many choices and ongoing decisions; the right advice can have a huge financial impact.

Lender vs. Broker...

Many people have asked us what the difference is between a mortgage broker and a mortgage lender. A mortgage broker is a trained professional that has access to loan products of different lenders and is licensed to provide you with the best advice for your mortgage needs. Mortgage brokers do not lend money. Most brokerages are small firms providing expertise services and counseling rather than loans. The lender is the one who provides the money to the borrower at the closing table. The lender also makes the final decision regarding loan approval.

So why can't you skip the middle man and go straight to the lender? Many lenders will not deal with the public for a number of reasons. For one, the cost in promoting would be too great. For example, there are many mortgage lenders based in Calgary, Alberta alone. Bridgewater, MRS Trust, Gibraltar Mortgage just to name a few. But how many of those have you actually heard of? Another reason is administration. There is a lot of paperwork involved when you close a mortgage agreement, and it just makes sense dividing up the work amongst the brokers.

Why do it Alone?

Investing in a new home is a big decision, so as a first-time home buyer, why do it alone?

Let our professionals guide you through the home buying process. We can advise you on all the legalities, the home inspection and the property appraisal. We will also work to find you the best interest rate and mortgage option that suits your financial situation.

Buying your first home can be overwhelming because of the wide variety of property available. It is important to get pre-approved for a mortgage because this will help you narrow your property search.

Our professionals will help get you pre-approved and be able to tell you exactly what you can afford, what your interest rate will be, and the amount of your monthly repayment.
