I am wondering if anyone can tell me the benefits of using a broker as opposed to going directly to a bank for a mortgage? I know that brokers can shop around, but do I have to pay more for my loan if I use a broker? Would they be able to find rates that are lower than what I could find if I just shopped around?I was considering using a broker as our scores are not that great and it would be nice to have someone else who could do the footwork of finding a lender that would accept them. At the same time, if it means that we will end up paying thousands more over the life of the loan, I'd rather put in the work and do it myself.Any insight into this would be greatly appreciated!
