Buying a house is a big commitment. It requires careful financial planning, research and consideration. Just like you wouldn’t sell your house without seeking advice from a real estate agent, you should always seek professional help before selecting a mortgage. However, there is a long-standing stigma surrounding mortgage brokers. Misconceptions like mortgage brokers charge a fee and are extremely expensive and not worth the investment do not fare well for you or the mortgage industry. As an expert mortgage broker, MORTGAGEGIRL BC – JACKIE WOODWARD wants to help debunk these misconceptions and change the attitude of people towards mortgage brokering.  

1. Mortgage brokers charge a fee 
Most borrowers, at some point, will be told that if they use a mortgage broker, they will have to pay a fee. This is not correct in most cases. Usually, lenders pay mortgage brokers a finders fee and additionally give low rates to broker clients. The only time a fee may be charged is if a private lender is used for a private first or second mortgage where the lender pays no referral fee. 

2. Mortgage brokers charge higher rates
Mortgage brokers have a duty of care to their clients to find them the best deal possible, irrespective of their personal profit. The lenders that mortgage brokers use have lower rates available than the major banks. Mortgage brokers have access to numerous lenders who give the client more options for their mortgage needs.

Most people who use mortgage brokers are ones that simply recognize that a professional can save them time and money and are the logical choice for the job.
