Reason #5 To Consult a Mortgage Broker: Negotiation


Posted by: Sarah Boudreau

Reason #4. Negotiation

A Mortgage Professional represents the client and ensures the mortgage secured best suits their needs.

A good mortgage broker is a savvy negotiator. Mortgage brokers are independent, trained professionals licensed to represent and provide the best advise for the clients’ mortgage needs. Mortgage brokers know where the best rates can be found, and we represent the client to negotiate best terms, conditions and rates. Often times, a broker can even find better rates at the client’s existing bank. Not only does this save the client money, but invaluable time.

Mortgage brokers represent the customer. Because we are not employees of a lending institution, brokers are not limited to one specific product. Instead, we seek out the best lender package to suite the client’s specific situation, whether it’s with a Chartered Bank, Trust or Insurance Company or Private Funds. There is a wide assortment of options and features available to home-buyers today and shopping around takes a lot of time and effort. Given the new government rules that were implemented on January 1, 2018, the mortgage process can be intimidating. It pays to work with a mortgage professional who will represent the client and negotiate on their behalf to ensure the mortgage is the best option for them. Choosing the wrong mortgage option can cost thousands of extra dollars. Mortgage brokers are trained professionals who can help save the client’s money.

As always, let me know if you have any questions or concerns.
