(This is Part 2 of a two-part series. Read Part 1, "Transparency is king in U.K. mortgage system.")

Last week I noted that the pricing of mortgage broker services in the United Kingdom was much more transparent than in the United States. As a result, the U.K. system provides no leeway for brokers to price opportunistically, meaning to vary the price according to what the borrower can be persuaded to pay. In the U.S., however, opportunistic pricing is pervasive and average broker fees are much higher.
