Loan Brokers Attack Online Direct Lending in Super Bowl Commercial Duel
The battle is on between lenders and brokers in the mortgage space as middlemen try to out-compete push-button loan technology.
Quicken Loans ran a Super Bowl Commercial that featured Game of Thrones Actor Jason Momoa aka Khal Drogo and its Rocket Mortgage product. The theme, that of being super comfortable in your home, is a complete 180 from the controversial route the company took during a previous year’s Super Bowl that prompted a negative response from regulators and viewers. Even if you’re not in the market for a mortgage, Momoa revealing “his true self” is pretty humorous.
But not everyone is a fan of what online direct lenders are selling. FindAMortgageBroker.com criticized “playing with rockets” when it comes to mortgages and advocated working with an independent local mortgage broker instead. Why work with a broker they say? Because brokers work with various lenders instead of just one. The company goes as far as saying that brokers are faster, easier, and more affordable and they sign off with the hashtag, #brokersarebetter.
