Can’t you just walk into a high street bank for a loan, or phone the number you saw on the TV?
Of course you can, but your choice will be severely limited. There are thousands of mortgages out there, for people in all sorts of different situations. Fixed rate, variable rate, tracker mortgages, capped and collared…
With interest-only mortgages, you only pay back interest on the loan. With repayment mortgages, you pay back both the interest and the capital that you borrowed over the term of the loan.
Ah yes, the repayment term – how long should that be? And do you want a short term discounted deal or something that you don’t have to look at again in a few years?
What about up-front fees and the all-important deposit question – how much loan-to-value do you need to borrow?
There are other considerations too. Some lenders offer cashback. You might want flexibility in your payment schedule. If you have a decent amount of savings then now might be a good time to offset your mortgage.
The possibilities are vast. You might know what you need and are just trying to find it, or you might not know what – if anything – suits your situation the best.
We know. And that’s the point of mortgage brokers. We understand how all these different mortgages work. We know the different lenders – the ones that are hidden from sight as well as the ones on the high street.
In fact, there are thousands of mortgage products that are only known to mortgage brokers. In the last half a year alone, 3,900 new products have become available to us – products that you can’t get directly as a borrower.
Brokers find the best deal from all of the mortgages available.
So if you want real choice, talk to a broker. We can find the best mortgage for your unique situation, and get it set up as smoothly as possible. We are impartial, and the advice is free. Let us know what you need and we will do our best to help.
