Finding a Loan Consultant

What to look for in finding a loan consultant?

Are you struggling to find the right home loan? Do you have a situation that requires expert knowledge to simplify the #lendingexperience? Navigating loans can be tricky, finding a guide to walk you through with a no-nonsense approach is imperative. Time is also of the essence, so working with a #loanexpert that will cut to the chase and #workefficiently is of the utmost importance.

Look at loan consultants' track record - what percentage of funding have they completed for their clients?

It's important to ask the following questions when finding a #loanconsultant:

1. What's your track record? That's always a tell-tale sign of any legitimate company, therefore ask the question of your loan consultant, "What percentage of funding have they completed for their clients?"

2. How many years experience do you have? In the loan industry, having #experience is what sets apart a good loan consultant with a great one! If you were climbing Mount Everest, you'd want a guide that's got the most experience to get you there in one piece. With buying a home, which is a significant feat in itself, you want a loan consultant with experience to navigate a smooth journey to the top.

3. What kind of lending sources do you have? Experience alone is not enough, you also want someone who's well connected and has various lending sources. Are they a direct lender or just a mortgage broker. If both they'll have more access to a larger pool of funding (#connections).

4. How much in loans have you closed? Sometime it just comes down to the bottom line and so it's important to ask the question, "How much, roughly, have you helped clients close over the years in dollar amount?" If they can answer this question, they're an established #seniorconsultant that's done the work.

5. What kind of services do you provide? Find the home loan that's right for you. Not all lenders service #VAloans (for Veterans) or some are just local lenders, not nationwide. Find out exactly what services your loan consultant can do.
