Why Use a Mortgage Broker

There are many reasons to use a mortgage broker. Even if you have stellar credit, a good down payment, a long job history, a good income and a ton of assets. For example: on a refinance transaction, some lenders will increase the price of a loan (ex.: .25 points) when the subject property existing mortgage is an unseasoned (less than 12 months old) mortgage, making it go from a Rate & Term refinance to a Cash Out refinance transaction and some won't; the difference between a "rate & term" refinance and a "cash out" refinance, the "cash out" refinance is always more expensive. Often we can avoid that expense by choosing the right loan program. The same "cash out" rule can apply when refinancing a second mortgage line of credit that has been drawn upon within the last 12 months. Sometimes there is an occasion to where a lender will offer an extraordinarily low interest rate but with a maximum loan amount that isn't high enough for what the borrower needs. So in this case, it could make dollars and sense to combine that lower cost mortgage with a second mortgage to achieve an over-all lower blended rate to achieve an overall lower cost of funds.
