Asked by Julia, Los Angeles County, CA • Sat Mar 2, 2013
I have some doubts about using the same realtor to handle buying and mortgage.
I had a realtor handling buying and mortgage. When we were going to submit offers, the realtor asked me to submit higher prices than I wanted. Plus other things, finally I decided not to work with that realtor any more. I have to find another realtor.
However, this time I have hesitation to use the same realtor to handle buying and mortgage.
The mortgage application requires my social security number(SSN), and other personal information, (e.g. birth date, address, bank account information). Using multiple realtors to handle buying and mortgage means I will spread my personal information among all these people which I don't really know. I am seriously concerned about identify thief.
My question is, should I use the same realtor to handling buying and mortgage, or should I use a lender broker separately to handle mortgage? What do people normally do to handle this situation? Please advise. Thank you.
