There are a number of reasons why working with Alterna Mortgage is better than working with a bank. We decided to make a list for you!

Drawbacks of working with a bank

  • They have conservative loan programs.
  • They don’t disclose the yield-spread premium.
  • Working with banks is generally a lengthy process and can be very bureaucratic.
  • Large banks tend to lose track of the details. You might get false promises.
  • They may overcharge you because their commission doesn’t need to be disclosed.
  • Sometimes the people you are working with are not educated about the home loan process. In some cases, they’re just general bankers or customer service representatives.
