A mortgage broker is there to support you even before you find the home you’d like to buy. They can research the market, provide you with an idea of suitable options, how much you may be able to borrow, and how much it may cost (interest rates and criteria are subject to change). Their role is to ensure that they source a mortgage lender and mortgage product that is the most suitable for your needs, your criteria, and for affordability.
A good mortgage broker will take the time to understand your current situation, analyse your income and outgoings, and research suitable options for you based on your needs. Everybody is very different and no one size fits all with mortgages, so an important role of the mortgage broker is to ensure the mortgage you need meets your criteria and objectives.
Buying a home is a huge life event, and taking out a mortgage is one of the biggest, if not the biggest, financial commitment you can make. Having a mortgage broker by your side throughout the process to research suitable mortgage products and advise you accordingly, ultimately helping you reach your goal of owning a new home, can be invaluable.
