Applying for a mortgage is one thing – but getting approved is a totally different story. Far too many perfectly suitable applicants get their mortgage application declined on a day to day basis. From our experience, the main reason for this is lack of knowledge and preparation.

Preparing a mortgage application in the correct way, painting the best financial picture of the applicant is critical to getting approval in principle the first time around.  All the necessary documentation required needs to be submitted and in the correct format for the banks decision makers to approve your mortgage.

As mortgage brokers, we do all this for you. We help you prepare your file in the correct way and present it to as many mortgage providers as possible so that you can have a choice of which mortgage providers you can use. This ensures you get the best mortgage rates possible.

A mortgage broker is a qualified individual/company who is authorised by the Central Bank of Ireland to give independent and best advice to customers in relation to mortgages.

Unlike most banks, they are not ‘tied’ to any one mortgage provider and have mortgage agencies with many different lenders.

We at Money Maximising Advisors are a mortgage broker and have agencies with all of the main banks along with the main alternative lenders such as Finance IrelandICS, etc. We can ensure that you get the best deal available to you, with no exceptions.

We use all the lender’s own calculators and mortgage approval indicators. This will ensure any issues that the bank might have with your application will be spotted by us prior to submitting the application.

By doing it yourself, you may get it right, but by using a mortgage broker like ourselves, you have the best chance possible of getting approved the first time. Just remember – we are on your side! And as mortgage brokers, we can help get you the best mortgage rates possible.
