Rock bottom rates = time to refinance

It's never been so cheap to borrow… Low rates aren’t just good news for the influx of first time buyers racing into get their first loan. This is also the right time for existing mortgage holders to capitalise on lender competition and super low interest rates. Despite interest rates dropping to historic lows, less than ten percent of mortgage holders in Australia have refinanced. That means millions of customers are paying extra interest…for no reason or benefit. That’s the definition of crazy! Especially when you have a broker like me that's here to do the heavy lifting for you. Do you know your home loan interest rate?  If no, you aren't alone. About half of surveyed home loan holders don’t know their rate! Let's talk and I can help work out the savings available. Three great reasons to refinance:
  1. Leverage equity. Refinancing a home loan can allow you to free up the equity in your assets to buy another property.
  2. Redeploy repayments. Lock in lower rates before they rise again, so you can choose to pay more off principal or perhaps take on a second property.
  3. Better fit. This can be a great chance to consider a different product type, consolidate other debts, shave years off your loan, or access exclusive deals.
Competitive home loans are ever changing and paying extra interest on an uncompetitive loan is the price paid for not reviewing and refinancing. At the end of the day, interest is just a payment to the bank for the privilege of borrowing their money. Interest is not going towards the value of your home, so there is no benefit to paying more of it. Just to be plain. No lender will offer you a deal if you don’t ask. Let me compare over 1000s of other loans for you, and see if you can save you a $#!% tonne.
