MortgagePro©: Get the banks competing for your business
Think about your last major purchase. Perhaps it was a trip (remember those?), a car, or maybe a couch to make movie nights better. How much time did you spend on that decision? Between test drives, online research, and pinning it head to head with a competitor’s version, you probably found yourself agonizing over the purchase before swiping your credit card. Or maybe it’s still on your mind and the anxiety over making a decision continues to weigh on you.
Increase that anxiety by 100 and you’ve got a look into the mind of a first-time homebuyer. There’s so much to think about from the neighbourhood to the schools to painting the original oak cabinets white (the horror!), that their head is spinning without focusing on the amount of money they’re borrowing and how much it’s REALLY going to cost them over time.
If only we all had personal shoppers to make these big decisions more bearable by figuring out our needs and presenting only the best options for us to choose from. Oh, and explain WHY they’re the best options based on their years of experience and industry knowledge. And applaud our ultimate incredibly smart decision with a parade and champagne… OK, now we’re getting ahead of ourselves.
Are personalized mortgage shoppers a real thing? Well, kind of; they’re called mortgage brokers and they help you get the best rates by getting banks and lenders to compete for your business. Unlike a bank, they have access to multiple vendors (often upwards of 30!) to provide you with a mortgage that makes sense for your current and future financial situation. That’s why we created MortgagePro – a program that any buyer can tap into to get a personalized experience with less stress (parade not included).
Already pre-approved by a bank? It never hurts to get a second opinion. In fact, it could mean the difference of tens of thousands on the length of your mortgage. We’re sure the term “it pays to take a second look” was first uttered by a mortgage broker as they sat with a happy first-time homebuyer who saved a boatload of money for their future plans. With MortgagePro, you can trust that the most competitive and flexible mortgage solutions are at your fingertips and will be explained by an experienced mortgage professional.
Where can you find these magical money unicorns? We can tell you that you won’t find them chained to a desk on your downtown’s main street. There’s no need to go into a storefront or wait in a call queue, our MortgagePro team provides advice and guidance when and how it’s convenient for you. After all, they work for you – not the bank. They will work tirelessly to explain your options over the phone or online to ensure you’re set up for success. Or if you prefer, fill out an online form and have them call you. They’re easy to get along with.
We all know that shopping around gets you the best deal. Allow MortgagePro to do the legwork for you – and carry your bags! Getting the best rate is only a click or a call away.
