Do I need advice for my first mortgage? (What does a mortgage adviser do?) – by Martin Ross
When looking to start your first mortgage, it can be tempting to look to obtain one in a similar way to travel insurance, through a comparison site. Mortgages, however, they are very different beasts and over 80% in the UK are arranged through brokers. (IRESS, 2018) Why is that?
What an adviser does?
Mortgages are very complicated products and have a variety of requirements and lender features. It can be very difficult to compare advertised rates as those offered can change depending on the applicant’s circumstances.
A mortgage adviser can recommend a mortgage that best suits their client’s needs. At 1st Financial Group we also assist by taking care of the application and dealing with the issues as they arise making it a less stressful process.
Many brokers, such as ourselves, will meet you outside business hours (at a time and place convenient for you), meaning you don’t have to take time out of your working day.
The decision to make?
When applying for your first mortgage, having a qualified mortgage professional who understands the market, and fights in your corner for the best deal for you is a good choice. They will make sure you get the right mortgage for your needs; that is why 70% of people use mortgage advisers.
We offer obligation-free financial health checks to help you decide which mortgage is best for you.
