Mortgage Brokers V Loan Brokers
Mortgage Brokers and Secured Loan Brokers enjoy a distant relationship at best. The two areas of finance do not have much in common apart from the clients needs. Mortgage Brokers generally have a higher regard to for the customers financial situation where most Secured Loan brokers are looking for insurance sales, high payouts and commissions.

The Secured Loans industry has been very lucrative. It has spurned many off shoots like online lead trading in real time; introducing web sites run by programmers who can play the natural web listing game or pay per click. Some leads are traded as high as 240 each. Call centers in India purchase life style questionnaire data and churn to resell as legitimate loan applications.

It seems the days are numbered for the Secured Loan broker. The best of the bunch like liquidloans.co.uk are transforming themselves into packagers leaving the advice to the mortgage brokers. The commission to the mortgage broker is yet to find a market level. However. the main concern to the mortgage broker should be customer service and completion rates. There are not that many secured lenders but the criteria for each vary considerably.

Secured loans business at the start of 2006 was not vital to mortgage brokers. Now it is an entirely different story. In 2006, secured loans went through something of an alteration in the wider mortgage arena from a 'specialist' product on the edge of the mainstream market, to one that is fast becoming part of every mortgage adviser's armory when providing best advice to their clients. This trend is set to speed up throughout 2007.

A frequent hurdle that advisers need to overcome on behalf of clients needing finance is the actual cost of re-mortgaging. This can particularly bite home if the existing first mortgage is at a good fixed rate or carries early repayment charges. The secured loan market itself is developing and evolving so that brokers have more loans to choose from, available for an increasing number of uses and at rates that are increasingly competitive.
 


Pros & Cons Of Working Directly With A Mortgage Lender

When investigating real estate financing, the average consumer does not have the time, experience or resources necessary to adequately evaluate the plethora of loan programs that exist. For this reason, the majority of buyers seek the assistance of a mortgage broker. The role of the broker is to act as liaison between the borrower and multiple lenders, and to present the features of the available loans. However, a small percentage of borrowers choose to do the leg work themselves, rather than rely on a broker, and they face some different challenges.

Benefits - Some of the benefits of working with a broker include simplicity and efficiency of communications, an educated and experienced assistant, an independent opinion, access to various lenders and loan programs that would otherwise be overlooked, and consolidation of information for easy comparison. Those borrowers who choose to work directly with a lender will usually experience faster approval, less complicated decisions, a representative with more intimate knowledge of available programs, and lower closing costs.

The Downside - Apart from the varying benefits of these two options are their potential downsides when compared to each other. When a borrower enlists the services of an independent loan broker, there will be higher closing costs, potentially higher interest rates, and a more lengthy and involved process both before and after a loan application is even submitted. Those buyers who work with a single mortgage lender must understand that they are sacrificing the opportunity to compare loan programs from other companies, they may not be receiving completely unbiased information, and they may not have constant interaction with the same representative throughout the process.

There is no right or wrong choice when beginning the search for real estate financing. The most important consideration is the trust and comfort level of the borrower, and each aspect of the real estate lending process should be carefully and thoroughly evaluated prior to making any final decisions or commitments.
