Independent mortgage lenders are smaller and more flexible than most banks. While they have to conform to the same laws and regulations as banks, independent lenders often can handle mortgage loans that banks decline. Since you don’t have to pay more for this service, you win by getting another choice — and you can get into your new home at a competitive rate.
An independent mortgage lender keeps your loan application process simple.
The Problem with Banks
First, not all banks are difficult to work with, and sometimes a bank can provide you with the most appealing mortgage to suit your needs. Community banks, in particular, do a pretty good job of approving residential mortgages in their communities. But in general, banks have inherent disadvantages when it comes to residential mortgage loans. You might find that:
- Banks have very conservative loan programs. If your situation is a little bit unusual, the banks might not be willing to work with you.
- A bank’s mortgage process tends to be very slow and methodical. Even a process that ends in rejection can take months.
- As you might expect, banks require reams of paperwork.
- Banks are big businesses, and mortgages make up just one division in each institution. Unless you know the loan officers assigned to review your application, you don’t know the level of training and experience they bring to the table. Inexperienced loan officers can make mistakes inadvertently, but more importantly, they may not be able to find the best type of loan for you.
- It can be difficult to figure out all the bank fees and discern whether they are all necessary. You may see a loan origination fee, discount points, a lender credit and/or a lender-paid compensation fee. Always ask for explanations.
Take Advantage of Banks’ Reluctance
Ever since the “Crash of 2008,” banks have been reluctant to issue new mortgage loans, especially to first-time homebuyers. If you’ve been turned down for a mortgage or a refinance, you empathize with the painful confusion that follows. Fortunately, independent mortgage lenders have rushed in to fill the void.
