Did you know that each time a lender pulls your credit report from the credit bureau it negatively impacts your credit score with each request? Most people don’t know that. One of the reasons that you should go to a broker first is that they will only need to pull your credit report once and can use that same report to shop your deal around to many different lenders. This will save you valuable points on your credit score.
Another great reason is that a lender will make their decision to approve or deny a borrower’s application based on a number of factors. One of the key factors is how the borrower’s situation is presented to a lender. This can make or break a deal and can make the difference between getting approved at a low rate, high rate, or not getting approved at all.
