Do I have to pay to use a broker?

There are a lot of misconceptions that mortgage brokers charge hefty fees. Generally this is not the case. Typically a mortgage broker will be paid by the lender (ie no additional cost to you) in the following way:

Mortgage brokers are paid an upfront commission and a trail payment:

UPFRONT PAYMENT PAID TO ME BY THE LENDER, NOT BY YOU. A one-off payment called an upfront commission is usually between 0.65% to 0.7% of the loan amount (+gst). We do all the legwork to get your loan approved.

TRAIL PAYMENT PAID TO ME BY THE LENDER, NOT BY YOU. ‘trail’ or ongoing commission is usually 0.15% p.a., based on the balance of your loan. We’ll be in regular contact with you to check in on your situation and make sure your loan continues to work hard for you, your changing situation and goals.
