Should You Get a Mortgage Online or In Person?
If you’re like most people, you know yourself well enough to determine whether you’re comfortable operating in the cloud or you prefer face-to-face contact. That can be the determining factor in deciding whether to get a loan online or in person.
But here are some other facts to consider.
If you care about face time when you’re conducting business, know that you won’t get much – if any – when you use an online lender. However, many online lenders do have loan officers on the payroll, and you can speak to them if you call in.

The other issue with online lending is that the people you do talk to, and who work on your loan, aren’t really local. They could be anywhere – from the northern coast of Washington State, for example, or even in another country. Sometimes, if you’re applying for a loan that can be complicated (like when you’re self-employed), you might be better off working with someone local.
If you have a totally conventional scenario – you have W2s and tax returns, and you don’t have any credit issues or other complications – an online loan may be the right choice for you.
