Mortgage Branches/Retail Banks

  • Banks specialize in more than just mortgage lending. They provide a variety of banking services, such as checking and savings accounts, and other financial services.
  • With a bank, you get retail interest rates.
  • Corporate branch offices have high overhead and lots of middle management.
  • Banks can only access and offer you their own rates and products.
  • Banks have conservative lending guidelines. Borrowers are denied for loans outside of their limited loan types.
  • A bank doesn’t have to disclose its full commission.
  • Underwriting and appraising is managed through national channels, which often means lengthy processing time.
  • Mortgage originators working for depository banks are excluded from licensing. Unlike mortgage brokers, they only have to be registered and are not required to pass a national mortgage exam or complete continuing education.
