Free Advice for Mortgage and Loan Solutions

Here you’ll find articles explaining in plain language some of the most asked about subjects regarding mortgages, home loans, debt management, and much more.  Let’s start by talking about what exactly a mortgage broker is and how working with one benefits your lending needs.

What exactly is a mortgage broker and why would you use one when applying for your home loan instead of going directly to the bank?

A mortgage broker is someone who acts on your behalf when talking to banks and other financial institutions. They are the conduit between someone seeking a home loan and the potential lenders. After the earthquake events of 2010, 2011 and 2016 it is important than ever to get that extra assistance when purchasing in Christchurch and other parts of the South Island.

In New Zealand, mortgage brokers are almost exclusively paid by the banks. This means our services to you are free. You should be careful to check this with your mortgage broker at the outset, however, as some brokers do charge for certain aspects of their advice. However, as mentioned above, our mortgage broker’s service to you is a free service.

You made the process super easy for us and we thank you for helping us to keep our rental and purchase our new family home, where I am sure many happy memories will be made.

  • Scott was incredibly supportive and patient with our many questions regarding securing the loan for our first home. Scott has a vast amount of knowledge, which he kindly shared which made this at times very daunting task a lot easier. The house hunting process was made so much easier thanks to the very detailed email series provided by Scott and his team. He has always made himself very accessible, which we greatly appreciate.
