Source on second-charge products and compare to remortgage products

Our sourcing system can allow you to demonstrate to a client whether remortgaging is a viable option or if it would be more beneficial to borrow additional funds on a second charge. It may seem like a complicated process but with MortgageBrain Anywhere it really isn’t. All that’s required of you is to:

  1. Input the information which in turn will calculate the savings in the given situation.
  2. Select compare a remortgage against second charge option.
  3. Add in your client’s existing mortgage information.
  4. Enter the property price, term and loan amount.
  5. Source remortgage products in the multiple search function.
  6. Use ‘New Search’ from the scheme list to source for second charge products.
  7. Use the ‘My Searches’ button and then ‘Compare ‘to have a clear view of the different products.

From here you will be sent to the comparison screen where you can clearly see the differences between the scenarios previously entered.

Creating multiple searches

Not only does MortgageBrain Anywhere give you the chance to source in any location with internet access, it has a host of options to really get into the nitty-gritty of what is mortgage sourcing. In this case, you are able to create multiple searches and we are more than happy to give you the steps on how to go about doing so.

If you already have a search open and wish to see another, all you have to do is select the New Search option in the bottom right of your screen. This will leave the original search in place whilst allowing you to construct another. Moving between the two, if not more, is as simple as clicking between tabs.

Bespoke mortgage schemes to fit your client’s needs

Finding the best mortgage scheme for your clients is a top priority when it comes to sourcing the right products.

By using MortgageBrain Anywhere, you can show your client a list of ‘best buy’ products that meet their needs and requirements. Our system takes into account the client’s mortgage and personal details which is aided by the standard best buy tables already integrated as a default.

When compiling such a bespoke mortgage scheme, it is vital that you include the following client details: 

  • Salary
  • DOB
  • Mortgage details

Following this, you will receive results offering the best products dependant on the criteria provided. It is important to notice that these are not general pieces of information but a table containing the ‘best buy’ options for the customer. In order to show this to them, select the option to display on the screen.

The personalisation doesn’t end there thanks to the additional filters available. As an example, you can add filters that take into account the possibility of overpaying. MortgageBrain Anywhere really is a tool perfect for getting the best for your clients.

Your guide to a summer of leads

We know, the smell of BBQ and freshly cut grass during the warmer months can make you want to sit back and let the summer float by. But remember, there’s still plenty of time for you to fill this season with a plethora of leads.

Whether you’re in the office or by the pool this summer, you can continue to generate leads by using some new tools and following a few of our handy tips. Your lead generation can turn into a real scorcher this summer with a little help from Mortgage Brain.

MortgageBrain B2C

Let’s start with your website. When generating leads, it’s important to consider how it looks, how mobile-friendly it is and how smart it is. That’s where MortgageBrain B2C comes in. Our professionally administered service dedicated to creating new or perfecting existing websites can aid in customising the look of your digital presence to increase the likelihood of lead generation.

This allows for all leads to link directly to our own CRM system so the whole process becomes streamlined and easy to use. Generating leads has never been so easy.

Social media ads

The successes that have come for businesses by using Facebook, Twitter or LinkedIn ads are numerous. These ads allow you to create a custom audience of people you may wish to target. However, you always need to take into account where your audience is and who they are. You don’t want to be pushing Facebook ads when the majority of your audience is on Twitter. That’s why it’s important to ask yourself the following questions:

  • What platform your target audience is on?
  • Which products do you want to sell to them?
  • What are their interests?

Having a strong grasp of your target audience will most likely decrease your spend on advertising and give you the best results in terms of leads.

If you’ve got funds to focus on advertising, then Google Adwords may just be the perfect option for you in maximising your leads. The myriad of ads that Google offer will really allow you to hone in on who and where you want to target.

Understanding the purpose of the different types of ads will certainly help in passively gaining leads through Google’s advertising system. You goals can all be met depending on how far along the sales funnel your targets are going to be. It would definitely be our advice to continuously run a series of ads i.e. brand awareness, consideration, and conversion. Once these ads are in place, they can continue to run even when you’re out of office.
