When buying a property there’s a lot to take in, having a trusted Mortgage Broker by your side can guide you through making the right decisions.


Unlike the banks a Mortgage Broker has access to a wide range of products from a wide range of lenders, ensuring you will find the right product that is most suited to your needs.


A few benefits of working with an experienced professional who knows the lending scene are:

  • Choice – having the access to a wide range of lenders with hundreds of loan products.
  • Advice – a Mortgage Broker can help you understand exactly what is required and will guide you throughout the home buying process.
  • Research – a Mortgage Broker can do most of the leg work; ordering valuations, submitting the loan on your behalf, liaising with your chosen lender.


It is important to know what questions to ask your Mortgage Broker to ensure you are getting the most out of your appointment.


  1. How do you decide which loan is best suited to my personal situation?
  2. How much of a deposit do I need to obtain a loan?
  3. What information do I need to provide you to obtain my finance?
  4. What impact will my credit card limits have on my borrowing capacity?
