How We Make Money
In today’s mortgage market, competition among lenders is fierce.
They are vying for new customers and offering their most competitive rates and fees as a result. My Mortgage Insider makes money by connecting a small percentage of readers to these lenders — but only readers that initiate contact through one of our rate request forms.
Readers can use the website free of charge, and without being connected with a lender. However, some readers want immediate help with a rate quote or home-buying eligibility check. For them, we provide opportunities throughout the website to request a call.
My Mortgage Insider does not represent any single bank or mortgage company but works with many licensed, reputable, and nationally known sources to provide the audience the best experience in mortgage shopping.
The consumer is the winner: multiple lenders (but never more than four) contact the reader with their best mortgage offer. The mortgage shopper chooses its best value.
