I'm looking to take out a mortgage and went into my bank who tell me they can organise the mortgage. Friends tell me to go to a mortgage broker because thats what they specialise in and might get me a better deal. I read about financial advisers arranging mortgages also. So I'm getting a bit confused as to what or who is best?
Thanks for any answers!

Grant Wilson answered 1 Years ago at 19:00A mortgage broker specialises in mortgages only, whereas a financial adviser normally has a greater range, dealing with pension, investments and overall financial planning which may also include mortgages. A bank representative only deals with the banks products, so bascically they can only sell their own stuff.
Mr Knowledge answered 1 Years ago at 20:50A mortgage broker specialises in mortgages and a financial adviser is much more of a planner with qualifications such as a degree in business rather thwn a salesperson.
Moneymaker answered 1 Years ago at 17:14While I agree with both of you I don't think you can say that some advisers are not sales people or that they all have degrees!
