How Did You Pick The Best Mortgage Advisors In Ballyclare?
We started with a dataset of 4 listed Ballyclare mortgage brokers & advisors we could find via Google Maps.
From there, we removed any listing that did not meet the following criteria.
- Had no website
- Had no reviews
- Had an average review score below 4.0
At this point if we had 17 or fewer brokers we listed all of them.
For cities where we were left with more than 17 brokers we made further revisions by either increasing the required review score (e.g. going from a minimum of 4.0 to 4.9) and/or increasing the minimum number of required reviews (e.g. going from at least 1 review to at least 10).
In our view a broker which has 100 5* star reviews is likely more accurate than one which only has a single 5* review.
Note we only used review data from Google Maps and not any other third-party websites.
How much do Ballyclare mortgage brokers charge?
Mortgage brokers in Ballyclare will most likely charge based on either a fee or commission structure.
It’s important you ask how they’ll get paid before choosing them as it may affect what products you’re offered and how much you ultimately end up paying.
According to Unbiased the average fee in the UK is £500, while the average commission is 0.35% of loan size. Or £350 per £100k borrowed (although you most likely won’t pay this directly).

Can all the Ballyclare mortgage brokers listed above help me with my mortgage needs?
That depends on what you’re looking for. Most mortgage brokers tend to specialise in a particular section of the mortgage market.
Therefore while a residential mortgage broker might be able to help you secure a buy to let mortgage it might not be the best one on the market.
