A new report finds that more than half of homebuyers do not shop around for a mortgage. 

The survey from LendingTree found that 54% of homebuyers who took out a mortgage for their most recent home purchase only got one loan offer. In contrast, 45% of homebuyers who shopped around got a lower offer than their first mortgage offer. 

"Among those who compared more than one mortgage offer, 45% say the lowest offer didn’t come from their first lender," the LendingTree report found. "Going further, 46% of those who got a mortgage say they went with a lender they didn’t have a prior relationship with."
