Mortgage brokers act as a middleman between the borrower and the mortgage lender or bank. A broker helps his clients qualify for a home loan and help them shop for the best rates from different lenders, as well as help prepare the necessary documents. Besides helping with paperwork, brokers can test different scenarios with the use of mortgage calculators to determine the most suitable loan structure. Home buyers who are not familiar with the mortgage process can seek the help of a broker in giving them expert advice.
