Yes I am a mortgage broker and have been one for just over 19 years now. When clients come to me they aren’t just looking for a mortgage ( which translates to roughly death pledge from old french). In actuality they are not coming to me for an interest rate either, although some are steadfast that it is very important to them.
What they really want is access to capital to allow them to purchase or refinance a home. The mortgage is just a tool to make that happen. It’s similar to people who go to the hardware store looking for drills, they don’t really want a hand held machine but they really want is something to make holes of certain sizes.
The same can be said about the general public’s fixation on interest rates. Yes great rates are important, but isn’t what you care about the most is the amount of the payment coming out of your bank account? Amortization or the length of the life of your loan has a greater effect on the size of your payment that just the interest rate.
Financing your home is an important decision, don’t leave it up to people who may give you substandard advice. Talk with an expert who just does mortgages so you will get the best advice possible.
Today I am thankful for a dark raining morning where even the birds slept in, a quiet walk with my dog as most of the walker and runners took the day off and an ethernet adapter that arrived quickly from Apple.
I look forward to hearing from you in regard to your mortgage needs.
