  • They compare wholesale mortgage rates from a large number of banks and lenders all at once
  • Their wholesale interest rates can be lower than retail (bank branch) interest rates
  • They offer more loan options because they work with numerous banks and lenders
  • They can finance tricky deals because of their knowledge and various lending partners
  • They are typically easier to get in contact with, and are less bureaucratic.

However advantages of working with your bank are:

  • You may be able to build off an existing relationship (and gain discounts if you have a checking or savings account)
  • You may already know the banker who will handle your mortgage
  • Banks may be more accountable than a smaller shop
