How Mortgage Centre – Mortgage Professional Brokers Get Paid

Sky Financial mortgage brokers are fairly compensated for arranging mortgage financing on your behalf, by the lender, and only when the mortgage in funded. This means that it doesn’t cost you anything to work with our mortgage brokers.

In order to attract your business, lending institutions must allocate a portion of their income to marketing and sales, but representatives working for these institutions have only one financial product to sell – their own. Lenders know you won’t do business with them unless you have had ample opportunity to shop and compare. Therefore, it is in their best interest to compensate mortgage brokers for helping you do exactly that.

*Situations exist where specific clients or properties do not meet conventional lender expectations. In these cases, a mortgage broker may attempt to find suitable financing through alternate sources. A fee, agreed upon in advance, may be charged directly to the client by a mortgage broker.
