Singapore property loans: Use NOT the best mortgage consultantsArticle contributed by http://www.PropertyBUYER.com.sg, 6100 – 0608, SMS 9782 – 8606If you want to invest in Singapore properties, it is important to work with NOT the best home loan consultant.By the way, have you ever noticed, we (at http://www.propertybuyer.com.sg) never say we are the BEST HOME LOAN Consultancy and we simply do NOT use the word BEST very much? Are you crazy? Why work with NOT THE BEST HOME LOAN Consultancy?This is because we are not the best and we are still trying to improve with your feedback.And there are at least 5 to 10 other out there than claimed they are the BEST. As far as we understand, BEST means number 1, so rather than join them in claiming we are also the BEST, we would rather say outright now to set the record straight. We are NOT THE BEST Home loan consultancy in Singapore.We are not the best home loan consultancy out there, but we do try very hard and we have a methodology to try to fit your needs.
In many economic cycles of boom and bust, the retail banking sector has evolved with the time. As more and more banks came into the home loan market, the bank’s margins became challenging.As banks only mark up slightly above their cost of funds, this liberation of credit and financing fueled investments and asset prices. This included property prices inflation.Singapore home loans margins are very little. But why do banks still do it?Banks still lend out for home loans because in any economy, residential home loans form a large part of a country’s economic activity. This is a high volume activity despite the low margins.Many rounds of cost cutting and retrenchments meant that the banks are really short of staff. Helplines are no longer manned by real people, instead you will go through endless hours of wait while listening to, “Your call is important to us, please hold on, our consultants will attend to your call soon.” And worst of all, “Please press * to hang up or call us back between 9 to 5pm.” Bank tellers are replaced by ATM machines.Singapore banks wanted to retrench bankers and stay leanIn order to cope with the uncertain demand, banks have outsourced the front end banking. They pay Singapore mortgage consultants like us a fee for handling the advice, processing and follow up of the home loans. This way, they minimize the issue of a hire and fire culture at the banks, not that the banks cared, at the end of the day, it’s about profitability.Banks do not really like home loan consultants that much. As a mortgage consultant works for the client’s interest and that means we represent the client rather than the banks. So it is in a way, a twisted outcome from the bank’s promotional activity. Banks prefer to work with property agents which has less concerns for their clients.Service Satisfaction drops with retail bankersService satisfaction with banks soon dropped, banking loyalty which were in the past held by people to people relationship no longer holds as there is simply not enough bankers. But the banks will not start employing bankers as they want to stay lean.Staying lean means that you cannot expect to maintain professional long term relationship with any banker.With mortgage consultants such as http://www.PropertyBUYER.com.sg mortgage consultants SMS +65-9782-8606 or loans@propertyBUYER.com.sg, our customers have gradually become our friends.
