Why use a mortgage consultant?

A mortgage is one of  the biggest financial decisions you will make and therefore requires a good understanding of the process and how to best leverage this to fit your financial needs now and in planning for the future.

The world of Israeli mortgages is complex and with so many options to choose from it can seem confusing and daunting. 

It is often difficult to understand and decide which is best option or which combination is the best. Even deciding how much of a mortgage to take and how much down payment to pay may be an issue. It also requires much time to meet with different mortgage banks to get their offers, compare them and then the skills to  negotiate.

Our  mortgage consultants take much of the worry out of this. They can explain the processes, the pluses and minuses  of each option, help you collect all the documentation required for meeting with the bank, and help position you in the best way for the meetings with the bankers. In consultations with you, our consultant helps you decide which are the best routes for you, based on your financial, personal and professional situation, determine how long a mortgage to take.
