Do you need a mortgage broker?

Whether you’re getting on the ladder or buying your forever home, finding the right mortgage advice is vital when purchasing a property in Birmingham. Using a mortgage broker could be right for you if you’re in a complex financial position or do not have the time to research the whole of the mortgage market. Consequently, you could end up with a better deal by using a mortgage adviser, saving you money over the life of your mortgage.

 

What is a mortgage broker?

 

A mortgage broker finds the most appropriate deal to fit your financial situation. A broker will do the hard work of researching available deals across the entire market. As a result, they could unearth deals you’d never otherwise access. And typically, using a mortgage broker will increase your chances of finding and being accepted for a mortgage.

Look for mortgage services with access to the most comprehensive range of deals. Tied mortgage advisers may only have access to a narrow range of products or lenders.

 

Should I use a mortgage broker?

 

Using a mortgage broker is an excellent way to get value for first-time buyers, who have never been involved in a property transaction before. But sound mortgage advice can be helpful whatever your buying situation, even if you’re self-employed or freelancing.

You might need a buy-to-let mortgage, for instance. Equally, you may be looking to remortgage an existing property, or you may wish to support the next generation to get on the property ladder. Mortgage advice can help you get better mortgage deals or access the value of your home, whatever your circumstances.

 

The advantages of using a mortgage broker

 

As a whole-of-market broker, we can help you navigate the different types of mortgages available. Finding the right mortgage can be daunting. Using a broker means you can be confident of ending up with the right mortgage for your financial and personal circumstances.

 

But there are other advantages to using a mortgage broker:

  • They know the market and have access to mortgage products and deals you cannot access yourself.
  • A broker ensures that you meet the lending and affordability criteria.
  • You’ll receive a clear overview of the costs and features included in your mortgage offer.
  • Mortgage brokers act as your advocates to enhance your chances of securing a mortgage
  • Your broker will help with paperwork, so your application can be handled faster.

 

Finding the right mortgage broker

 

Before choosing a mortgage broker, check whether they cover the whole market or whether they are tied to certain lenders.
At your first meeting, find out what services they provide, for example, whether they’ll chase up lenders and solicitors, as well as handle your paperwork. At Kind Wealth, for example, we pride ourselves on delivering a full end-to-end service and will always liaise with all parties in the transaction to support you throughout the whole process.

If your broker recommends a particular deal, it’s also beneficial to ask them for a detailed explanation of why this is the best fit for you.

A good adviser will also offer valuable tips and guidance on home-buying. And that support can be invaluable to minimise the stress of purchasing a property.
