For many homebuyers, getting the best mortgage involves working with a mortgage broker. (See the Nolo article How to Choose and Work with a Mortgage Broker for details.) To get the best mortgage broker on your team, ask the following questions, as well as any special to your situation (for example, concerning a credit history issue, your interest in an FHA or other government-backed loan, or the broker’s experience with self-employed buyers). Before making your final decision, check references, using Nolo’s Mortgage Broker Reference Questionnaire.
