Why get a Mortgage Broker?

Mortgage brokers can help in a number of ways, some advantages of using a broker are:

    • greater access to lenders, mortgage products and rates
    • the ability to compare mortgage rates without having your credit report being pulled multiple times (if you conducted your own comparison shopping, your credit report would be pulled once by each of the lenders you go to)
    • all negotiations are handled by the mortgage broker
    • greater flexibility when finding a time to meet with your broker in-person as mortgage brokers usually have extended hours
    • access to your mortgage broker’s in-depth industry knowledge
    • it is a free service; mortgage brokers are paid by the lender that provides your mortgage

By being a member of Mortgage Professionals Canada, mortgage brokers are agreeing to the ethical and professional guidelines outlined by the association.

Mortgage Broker Licensing

Mortgage brokers are licensed by the province, although each province has its own rules. In many provinces, mortgage brokers are expected to complete training courses and have a minimum amount of work experience before becoming licensed. In others, there are no educational requirements. In all provinces, one may acquire an Accredited Mortgage Professional (AMP) designation from the association known as Mortgage Professionals Canada (MPC). It is the only proficiency standard for the Canadian Mortgage industry and although not necessary, does add additional credibility.
