BY NOW YOU MUST BE AS CONFUSED AS THE MAN NEXT DOOR. MAYBE YOU HAVE BEEN DRINKING THIS TEA.
"This Morning when we drove down the road, we saw 7 garages open on to the street each with a new Mortgage Originator or better known as a Bond Originator offering a new service,where do they come from?"...a confused Lena Lefty
When I received this mail I knew we needed to do some explaining.
Firstly, there are 100's of new bond originators on the market and everyday a new one seems to pop up and offer some FABULOUS new deal , but there is a reality out there. There are the guys who founded this industry with years of seriously great experience and there are the OTHERS who feed off the rest.
Then there are the estate agents who have also set up their own deals with banks and of course there are the BANKS themselves who also want a slice of the action - CONFUSED??? I'm not surprised.
So who are the real guys and whose next in line etc?
Well the original guys on the block with most experience all starting around about the same time are Wizard, Mortgage SA, Bettabond, BondChoice, Quantro.
These guys have the savvy know how and service ethics that set the stage for an awesome business platform.
Then came the rest. When they started , who knows , some are great, some pathetic and each one is a out there to offer you something.
Its either, 5% payback, commission back, No registration fees, Free this and free that, discounted attorney fees, blah, blah, blah, blah .
The truth is someone is taking a slice out of the banks commission paid. That means attorneys are receiving "commission" against discounted fees, Estate agents are getting fees, the client is getting fees and the bond originator will probably be bankkrupt after 6 months.
If you want fees and discounts versus great service well thats your call. ME, I want it done, done properly, no pain and having the financing a magical moment in my life.
So whose the plethora of BO's (Thats Bond Originator not Body odour) out there..here are a few names for you
Kredibond, Ubuntu, Mymortgage, Bond Experts, Bond Aid(Hi bob geldof), Bondfocus, Savebond, HomeloanXpress, BondOption, Bondplus, Bondrelax, Cashrefund, Mybond, Yourbond, Ourbond, Webond, Bondi beachHomeys, JamesB, Bestbond, Bondshell, Dimension Homeloans, Equity, Homeforum, The Bond Operation, Mortgage Impact, Givemeyourmoneyquickly and more and more and more
Well many of these guys sub contract or aggregate through the bigger boys and what I hope happens is that the new National Credit Act starts clearing out the shysters so that mr and mrs Joe Public end up getting what they deserve......
JUST DARN GOOD SERVICE - something we South Africans are permanently looking for!!!!!
