Do I Really Need a Mortgage Broker?

Many people can be confused as to why they would need a mortgage broker. Can’t you just go to your bank and get a mortgage? While it can seem that simple, you risk the possibility of losing thousands of dollars towards the house you’ve been dreaming of. A Mortgage Broker is on your side and will help you get every dollar you can for your mortgage. Read on for our top reasons as to why a Mortgage Broker should be the first person you call.


Why do I need a mortgage broker?

Lower rates

A Mortgage Broker, simply put, gets you the best bang for your buck. They have access to dozens of different lenders and rates and can find you the best deal possible. They can reach rates that are not widely known, from lenders you’ve probably never heard of and single out what will work best for you. These rates are often much lower then the ones you can get from your current bank or credit union.


Everyone is different, and every mortgage is different. A Mortgage Broker can tailor a plan just for you, taking into account all of your previous credit history, any current loans, overdrafts, employment history, income, assets, what you can put afford for a down payment and more. A bank simply cannot put that much time and energy into their clients, whereas with a Mortgage Broker it is a large part of their job.

Your ally

If this is your first time buying a home, it might seem a bit intimidating to figure out where you should begin. Going with a mortgage specialist at your local bank can seem like a good idea, but their goal is to sell you their product. A Mortgage Broker is here for you and you alone, and with their knowledge they can help you navigate through the different rates and lenders to reach that perfect plan for you.

Let a mortgage broker help you today

Free (to you) 

Sure, you might think, all of this sounds great, but do I really need another fee to pay with all the others that come with purchasing a home? Well good news, our Mortgage Broker comes at no cost to you. They receive a commission from the lenders they work with, meaning you can choose to work with a Mortgage Broker with no negative consequences.


We know you’ve got a lot going on, with work schedules, various appointments and family obligations, and if you are buying a home with a spouse it can be challenging to find the time for you both to make an appointment with your bank during their restrictive hours. A Mortgage Broker can come to you, to your house or a neutral location. You can let the kids play or enjoy a hot beverage while you and your Broker find your best rates in the comfort of your own home.
