The Best Mortgages to Have

Dec 14, 2007
Getting a mortgage is a big deal. I am sure you will agree with me. But at the very beginning let me tell you that you should not settle for a mortgage that is any less than you wanted. Why do I say that? While it can be true that some of the larger and better known mortgage companies can afford to offer you a better deal due to the sheer volume of business they're doing, surprisingly there are a good few mortgage dealers that can often beat the ones offered by the larger and more well-known companies. The personal element offered by these lenders is a benefit.

Shopping around is a must if you want to wind up with the right loan. If you don't look around, you might wind up with something inferior. This is simply because a mortgage can be a pretty severe drain on your income, and while you may think they're all the same now in a year or so you could well find that if you went with another less well-known company you might have saved yourself some money. However, "one size fits all" is not a philosophy that the mortgage offers.

Each individual has different needs. So I'd highly recommend taking a look at what the better advertised companies have to offer first and then - before you sign that particular contract - see what are the mortgage types that other dealers have on offer.

If the first bank you check with has what seems like a pretty decent interest rate and another one has one a fraction of a percent higher then you could quite happily mention the offer your other bank has made you to see if they can beat it. If the bank really wants your business, its representative will do all he can to keep you from going elsewhere.

He will try to top the deal you have seen with one that is better. If they can trim a smidgen of the interest rate off, or perhaps give you some added bonus to make up for the fact that you're paying a little extra, then they might well do simply on the basis that, in the long run, they still end up making a profit.

If you like, when you go to the bank, you could ask to meet one of the more senior employees of the bank. This is if you feel like someone with the right to give you that extra little saving is needed instead of their average salesman.

Banks make a lot of money through loans. So your bank is going to want to do business with you. Play that to your advantage, shop around, check local branches, head to some internet mortgage-comparison sites and you could either save yourself a good lump of cash or get some nice little freebie thrown in. For example, the loans being offered by two major banks might be exactly the same.

But one of the banks might be willing to waive some of the penalties that they normally charge. Solves the problem. Many people reckon that the little added extras don't make a difference. But then, every last one of us loves a bargain. Even if it is a small thing that one of the lenders is offering, we will go with him without batting an eyelid.
