Choosing the right lender can make all the difference in whether you have a smooth transaction while you work to get the keys to your home. The sale and purchase of real estate is a delicate dance between a number of parties. Any one party’s failure to act faithfully, and responsibly on any one point during the transaction can cause delays, or at it’s worst, throw the deal. So choosing your lender is highly important, as they are the financier, and they determine whether or not to fund your loan. With Element Home Life, we are happy to provide you with a selection of lenders for you to interview and see who has the best lending program for you.

Lending Options

A direct mortgage lender is a financial individual (banking institution) or mortgage bank that offers financing of home loans. Lenders have specific borrowing guidelines to verify your creditworthiness (run a credit report) and your ability to repay the loan. They set the terms, interest rate, repayment schedule, final loan approval (underwriting), and other key aspects of your mortgage. 

On the other side, a mortgage broker works as the middleman between you and a number of lenders. Mortgage brokers don’t control borrowing guidelines, the lending timeline or final loan approval. Brokers are licensed professionals who collect the information submitted on your mortgage application, your qualifying documentation, and they also run your credit. The broker will then, if necessary, counsel you on items to address on your credit report. They may also speak with you about your finances, to help strengthen your chances on an approval. Most mortgage brokers work for an independent mortgage company, they are allowed to shop multiple lenders on your behalf, to help you find the best possible rate and deal. 

The difference between the two, a lender works for one banking institution, which limits the borrower to only the programs available by that particular bank. The broker can shop multiple lenders, to put your loan package in front of the lender that has the best lending program for you. Because the mortgage broker has the ability to work with so many lending institutions, if you are someone who has a credit disadvantage or you need a bit more financial leadway, using a mortgage broker may be a better option. It’s also important to note that you do not need to have any credit or financial disadvantage to use a broker. They will work with any client. Here at Element Home Life, we can help you assist you in most any lending capacity.
