It’s a bumpy ride at the moment in the mortgage market.  Interest rates seem to be changing as quickly as the tide changes and despite our best efforts at always being positive even we are finding the journey a little hard to enjoy. 

 So if we feel like that, we can only imagine what you must be feeling like.

The problem you’re facing is really more than just the rise in interest rates. Of course, any rise in rates is painful and it may mean that you have to borrow less, or that your monthly payments are stretching you to an uncomfortable position.  

However, that really is not the main issue, as when it comes to affordability You ultimately will find what is affordable to You.  The issue that really is causing the problem is the instability of the market – the fact that the rates seem to be changing so quickly and deals are being pulled left right and centre.  

I truly believe that this will settle down and you can get some confidence again, but it is going to take many months to do that and in the interim confusion and instability will reign.

So it is at times like these, when the seas get choppy, that you need an experienced and fearless captain at the wheel. And when I say you need an experienced and honest mortgage broker advising you more than ever before, I truly mean it.

What is a mortgage broker? And why do you need one?

An experienced and fully independent mortgage broker is able to follow the market minute by minute and make sure you have the best deal that is available to you and get that deal locked in before it vanishes.  

I would suggest it is almost impossible to do this yourself as a borrower right now.  Even in more secure and stable times you will struggle to understand all the deals available, but in waters as choppy as these it is nigh impossible.

An independent mortgage broker not only has the information in front of them minute by minute, but also has the ears of the lenders.  So at any time, no matter the conditions out there, you can be sure that the deal being shown to you is one that not only is viable from a borrowing point of view, but also is the best one available at that moment and can be held in place.
