After 28 years in the mortgage industry, I have learned many aspects of mortgage shopping, and have worked with thousands of consumers & mortgage professionals over the years. I am very familiar with all the online sources out there for mortgage shopping.

In my opinion, using an Industry source that has direct experience with lenders and loan officers, would be at the top of my list. I have known about Scotsman Guide since I began as a loan officer in 1990. For over 30 years, they have been the go to for mortgage professionals across the country. In my opinion, they know who are the best lenders to work with. I say this because, they work closely with lenders and loan officers on a regular basis, compiling data on production numbers that are verified through them. Only the top lenders and loan officers make their list each year. They know the industry better than most anyone.

To me, there referrals carry much more weight then most referral sources. Why? Because they know more about their lenders and loan officers than most other sources.

3.) Understanding what comps an appraiser uses in establishing value.

4.) How the Realtor can help in value disagreements.

5.) The importance of a Mortgage Pre-approval before you shop for a home.
