Lately, I am having to remind buyer that real estate agents and brokers are not licensed mortgage brokers. I find that many buyers expect us to know everything there is to know about the mortgage industry, despite the fact that rules may change at any time. I think that a real estate agent should have general knowledge of mortgaging and lending, including interest rates and new trends. Buyers should understand that the real estate agent's job is to help them find, negotiate, and secure a house. This includes working with contingency deadlines, 6D certificates, fire certificates, and on time delivery and execution of all documents. Buyers cannot rely on brokers for accurate mortgage information. That is the job of a mortgage specialist.
