Does applying for a home loan online outweigh the traditional ‘face to face’ meeting with a mortgage broker?
In 2021, online or digital lending is becoming more popular. An online home loan (also known as a digital home loan), is a type of loan that is offered completely online, including the application process. They are usually offered by digital lenders and theoretically allow you to go through the application process without any physical documents and without meeting face to face with a broker.
Every online lender allows you to apply online but, ultimately, a human being will get involved at some point owing to real world complexities.
This means there’s no escaping the possibility of bank or lender delays or errors.
By using a mortgage broker to apply for you, you get the best of both worlds: a simplified online process with great technology backed by expert advice from specialists in home loan lending policies.
