German Mortgage

What is an independent mortgage broker?

What is an independent mortgage broker/company?

An independent mortgage broker is an intermediary, linking the borrower like you, to a lender or mortgage company, which is usually a bank or insurance company. Your mortgage broker manages the application on your behalf, researching products, dealing with lenders, and taking the burden off of you.

What are the benefits of using an independent mortgage broker/company?

An independent mortgage broker is in the simplest terms a middleman – using their expertise and resources to take the heavy lifting out of your mortgage application. Applying for a mortgage is a timely, complicated and often drawn out procedure, and by handing over your application to a broker, you can take out a lot of the stress from applying for a mortgage.

Don’t waste time

You can save a lot of time when using a mortgage broker to apply for your mortgage. Between researching products, filling out forms, finding the best mortgage interest rates and following up with lenders, the whole process of getting a mortgage is by no means fast. By letting a mortgage company manages your mortgage application, you can free up time to focus on what matters most to you. Buying a home in Germany can be a challenging experience, so any free time you can claw back is always a positive.

Save money

There are over 450 German lenders offering mortgage products on the market currently, so choosing the best valued mortgage can be tricky without the help of a mortgage broker. Our advanced technology scans through the market, using your personal details to find the right product for you. This means you can be rest assured that you have the best mortgage offer, and avoid overpaying pricey products.

Pair your background with the right products

We take your personal and financial circumstances into account when finding the right mortgage. This requires a great understanding of your employment situation, income, debt and life events. We use this information to give you an idea of what kind of mortgage you could get. The LoanLink mortgage overview is a detailed breakdown of the mortgage product you could expect to be offered. They are sourced from actual products. This illustration includes monthly payments, interest rates, LTV ratios.

Most high street brokers would require you to come in for an appointment for a similar mortgage snapshot. With LoanLink you are not required to do so: Everything can be done online. Therefore, you can even manage your mortgage application at the comfort of your home anytime, even with managing your mortgage documents. However, we also happy to advice you in person in Frankfurt or Berlin.
