Talking Banks & Brokers
More and more people are opting for mortgage brokers to secure their loans. In fact, around 75% of new home loans are now being facilitated by brokers. The traditional method of walking into your local big four bank branch—CBA, ANZ, Westpac, or NAB – is rapidly declining. Relying solely on banks for your home loan could prove to be a costly mistake. At Go Mortgage, our specialised brokers have witnessed many borrowers missing out on better deals by not exploring all their options. Here’s why working with a mortgage broker is often a smarter choice.

Limited Loan Options at Banks

Walking into a particular bank for a mortgage, limits you to the products that only that specific bank offers. Banks have a set range of loan products, meaning your options are restricted.

In contrast, as mortgage brokers we have access to over 60 lenders offering a variety of loan products. This access allows brokers to find the best rates and terms tailored to your unique financial situation, something a single bank will not be able to provide.

Personalised Mortgage Advice

Bank loan officers are employees of the bank whose main goal is to sell you their products. This often leads to a generic, one-size-fits-all approach. As a mortgage broker, our primary motivation is to help you achieve your goals and we take the time to understand what this looks like, analyse your situation, and provide customised advice. This personalised service ensures you get the most suitable mortgage product for your needs.

Competitive Interest Rates and Lower Fees

Banks often charge higher interest rates and fees compared to what mortgage brokers can offer. Mortgage brokers have access to rates from a range of lenders, which are typically lower than retail rates offered by banks. By working with a broker, you can save money on interest and fees over the life of your loan.

Faster and Easier Mortgage Approval

Navigating the mortgage approval process can be complex and time-consuming, especially when dealing directly with a bank. Mortgage brokers streamline this process by handling the paperwork and negotiations on your behalf. Our expertise and relationships with multiple lenders can expedite approvals, ensuring a smoother and faster experience. Or goal is to take you on the journey as quickly and as seamlessly as possible.

Comprehensive Comparison Shopping

We are your personal loan shopper, comparing offers from various lenders, to find the best deal. This comprehensive approach means you’re more likely to secure a mortgage with better terms and conditions than if you went to a single bank. We can offer you a game plan, presenting at least three options for your consideration, and explaining each one in detail. We can also help you understand the fine print, ensuring there are no hidden surprises.

Expert Guidance Through the Mortgage Process

The mortgage process can be overwhelming, especially if you are a first-time homebuyer. Mortgage brokers guide you through every stage, from pre-approval to settlement. Their expertise helps you avoid common pitfalls and ensures you understand each step of the process.

Choose a Mortgage Broker for Better Loan Options

Whilst walking into a bank for a mortgage loan might ‘seem’ convenient, it often comes with limited options, higher costs, and less personalised service. By choosing a mortgage broker, you gain access to a wider range of lenders and loan products, competitive rates, and expert guidance tailored to your needs. Make an informed decision and work with a mortgage broker to secure the best possible mortgage loan for your financial situation.
