Lake Oswego Real Estate Shopping For A Real Estate Loan
Shopping For The Best Real Estate Loan
Over 50% of home buyers don’t shop to find the best interest rate for their mortgage.
While a buyer would rarely purchase the first home they look at, they will accept the rate and terms offered by only one lender. While the borrower and the property affect the rate and terms that a lender may offer, not all lenders offer the same service, terms and rates to the same buyer.
I advise my clients that shopping around to compare rate and terms for a mortgage is a reasonable exercise considering that a half percent less interest rate could not only lower the payment but the cumulative interest that is paid while that loan is outstanding. When meeting with buyers, I am always amazed when buyers don't shop for the best rates and fees for a mortgage.
Over the years, I have also found many mortgage brokers/lenders promise the moon but fail to deliver. In addition, some buyers seem to think out-of-state, big-box companies with loan services, somehow offer the best products for you. Frankly, I have found this not to be true.
Many times I am asked for a mortgage broker/loan officer referral for those buyers. Because of my years selling real estate, I have consistently worked with tried and true mortgage brokers. It behooves a buyer to work with someone locally that I routinely work with. I do not get a referral fee or make any money when referring my favorite and best loan officers to you. My only pay-off is that since I have worked with them for many years, I know they will take excellent care of you and deliver what they promise to give you the best rates and loan product available. And, to get your transaction closed on time.
Equally important is hiring a mortgage broker that best suits your needs, and not doing so can derail a transaction quickly. Being available and paying attention to your specific real estate transaction and its conditions is something extremely important.
Rates are increasing, and if you're ready to take the plunge to purchase a new home and get pre-approved for a loan, give me a call at 503-804-9685. I will be happy to refer you to the best Portland-metro area loan officers in the business.
