You’ve made a smart decision, to work with a commercial mortgage broker for your next commercial mortgage. The first thing you need to realize right out of the gate is that the right broker can save you thousands of dollars and the wrong broker can cost you just the same. At a minimum, a commercial mortgage broker should be able to assist you with the following.
Sometimes you need images or before-and-after pictures to illustrate your services. A real estate agent sells houses so why not show photos of houses? A weight loss expert shows a person morphing from fat to thin – why not?
Many adjustable rate mortgage programs now offer a variety of margins for you to choose from. This means that you may have an opportunity to control your future interest rate. Sooner or later all adjustable rate mortgages adjust to an interest rate that is equal to an index plus the value of your margin. You have no control over the movement of the index. But if you can get a lower margin you will have a lower rate (once your loan starts adjusting) for as long as you have your loan. Your good faith estimates should all indicate the margin for your loan. Call the individual mortgage brokers and tell them you are interested in a lower margin. Don’t be shy. It’s your money!
Walk into any karate school. Look at all of the colored belts and take a count. Now look at the black belts and count those. Most people will sign up to a karate school for some reason or another, however very few ever make it to black belt.
There are no stupid questions. Does the Mortgage Broker Brisbane answer all your questions to your satisfaction? Are his/her answers straightforward, honest, and respectful?
The first step is the motivation for selling. It is important to know what drives you to sell your property. Know the reason why you want to sell the property. Once you enter the real estate investment the reason for selling is always there. And of course, one of the main reasons is earning money, right? And the second is the personal reasons depending upon your situation. But if you are not well motivated in selling, you will just put yourself up for frustration.
What we mean by points are the charges you pay to the financial institution for lending you the money. Each point represents one percent of the loan amount. You might pay points up front as cash, or they might be figured into the bottom line that you are financing. The cheapest loans may be those with the lowest points. Some have no points at all.
The more of us who choose to be the second kind of person, who choose right every time, the better will be our industry and, by extension, our society and our world.
