Technically, a mortgage broker is the one who brings the people who need loans to the people who have loans to give, the lenders or banks. The process of finding borrowers would be expensive and time consuming if left to the lenders. Instead of setting up a system to draw in customers, lenders generally rely on brokers. In return for the clientele brought in by brokers, lenders may often give wholesale rates certain brokers. As a result of such occurrences, brokers are often able to offer their clients lower rates than most borrowers would be able to find on their own.

Not everyone knows the benefits of working with a mortgage broker. Mortgage
brokers have many advantages:
- Mortgage brokers are exposed every day to the mortgage business and so have
an insight that other may lack.
- Mortgage brokers have connections with lenders that may lead to good deals
- Mortgage brokers have an understanding of the lenders, and know which lenders
will work best for you.
- Mortgage brokers can help borrowers with bad credit or those who are lacking
documentation find fair loans.
Mortgage brokers usually provide their services for a percentage of your loan amount. On a mortgage of $300,000 with a fee of 1%, the broker would be entitled to $3,000. Generally the smaller the amount of your loan, the higher this percentage will be. Some brokers have set fees and others are paid hourly. Depending on the broker, he or she may put their fees in writing on being hired while others do not. It is always a good idea to ask your broker about his fees.
A good mortgage broker can help you find the best mortgage for your current financial situation, as well as for you future goals, quickly and efficiently. When you work with a broker, you are able to take advantage of his expertise and connections. Also, this allows you to complete the mortgage process with as little stress as possible.
