Home Mortgage Quotes Online - How Do They Compare To a Quote From a Broker in The Real World?


Online home mortgage quotes are very similar to the quotes given by mortgage brokers in "the real world," except lower. With the reduced cost due to a simplified application process and reduce overhead for office space and personnel, online mortgage lenders can offer financing with no fees or lower interest rates.

Looking At Fees

Fees are the hidden costs of loans. Mortgage brokers are paid in fees or points on the mortgage loan. The advantage of a mortgage broker is that they find the best mortgage rates for you. So even with their fee added into the loan, you still can expect to save money.

Online mortgage brokers have automated much of the mortgage loan process, reducing costs. As a way to stay competitive, many of these lenders have eliminated or reduced their fees.

Interest Rate Quotes

Both traditional and online mortgage brokers can give you an instant generic interest rate quote to narrow your choices from a mortgage lender. However, to get a true quote, you will need to provide detailed personal and financial information. With a traditional mortgage broker, the process can take a couple of days to process the information and meet with the mortgage broker to review rates.

Online mortgage lenders connected all their databases to be able to provide you with a near instant quote. Occasionally there can be delays in processing your information if you have recently moved or changed names or jobs.

Difference Is Sales Styles

Online and traditional mortgage brokers differ in their sales style when relaying quotes to you. A traditional mortgage broker will use sales tactics to pressure you to complete the mortgage application right there. Many people feel the need to make a quick decision rather than taking the time to process the information.

Online mortgage lenders offer a different approach; they provided the information, then wait for you to take the next step. After requesting a mortgage quote, you will receive rates either through the website or through email that you can review at your own pace. You can choose to apply with a specific mortgage lender, or decide that none of them are best for you.
