WHAT IS THE ADVANTAGE OF USING A BROKER FOR MY HOME LOAN?

Mortgage brokers specialize in finding lenders and originating loans. They're paid on commission to match homeowners, who need to borrow, with lenders, who want to loan. Some mortgage brokers handle loan processing and take loan applications, obtain credit reports, and order the title reports and appraisals.

However, mortgage brokers do not underwrite the loan - they sell the loan to an investor. Essentially, mortgage brokers arrange funding for buyers by connecting them with sellers, and because they work with multiple lenders as opposed to being an employee of one lender, they can usually find very competitive rates.
