Cohen Handler has announced a partnership with leading aggregator eChoice Limited (ASX: ECO) to help more Australians get the right property at the right price with the help of an experienced industry specialist.
This partnership will enable mortgage brokers at eChoice to offer Cohen Handler’s service to help aspiring homeowners and investors who already have loan pre-approval, to get ahead of the competition in the Australian property market.
Jeremy Bedwani, General Manager of Corporate at Cohen Handler said: “We are aware that it can take borrowers 6-10 months to find the right property after being approved for a loan. The new service offering developed by Cohen Handler and eChoice can potentially reduce that property search time to 2-8 weeks, making the whole process more timely and effective.”
Buyers who have received loan pre-approval and have been actively looking for a property for 60 days or more will be connected with a buyers’ agent to help progress their search.
“This new service will provide an important opportunity for eChoice brokers to deliver further value to clients by having a dedicated buyers’ agent manage the critical process of buying a property for them,” said GM of Aggregation for eChoice, Blake Buchanan.
“For both the broker and client, this is a significant value proposition at a time when it’s most needed by the client on their buying journey.”
Mr Bedwani said: “This collaboration is based on a mutual commitment and willingness to continue innovating and creating new ways to help customers find the right property sooner.
“We’re delighted to support eChoice brokers and are confident this partnership will help thousands of Australians potentially achieve their dream of home ownership sooner.”
To date, eChoice has helped more than 50,000 Australians secure a home loan through its expanding national network of industry accredited mortgage brokers, from a panel of over 30 lenders.
