Why get pre-approved with a broker?
Did you look at only one home when you wanted to purchase? What about only homes listed by a particular real estate agent? No, you look at every home that fits your criteria that is for sale.
In the mortgage world different lenders have different products, policies, different regulations and varying risk tolerance. This can result in one lender saying no to a client where another would say yes. If you are only looking at one lender for your mortgage you might end up thinking you cannot get a mortgage when you can.
Don’t miss out on opportunity, have a pre-approval by a mortgage broker to ensure that you are looking at several options in the mortgage market instead of just one.
