Common questions if you’re thinking of refinancing
Now is always a great time to shop around or check that you have the right loan for your needs, and we’re a great starting point to streamline this process. How you’ll refinance your loan will depend on what interest rate you’re currently paying, what type of home loan you have (e.g. fixed, variable, interest only, line of credit) and what features you want in your loan. We can quickly explain your options.
This is one of the reasons some people refinance. The advantage is that you pay a much lower interest rate on a mortgage than for most other forms of debt, e.g. credit cards, overdraft facilities, personal loans, etc. Providing you have sufficient equity in your property, you may be able to consolidate all your debt on a home loan. If you choose this option it’s important to make sure you maintain your repayments of your consolidated debt at their current level, or you could easily end up paying more over a longer period of time.

You’ll find most lenders offer flexible repayment options, which are tailored to suit your pay cycle. We recommend aiming for weekly or fortnightly repayments over monthly, as you will make more payments in a year, which means you’ll pay less and have your loan finalised more quickly.
Depending on your loan, penalty fees could apply if you’re paying off your current mortgage early. But these may be offset by repayment savings when you switch home loans. Contact us and we’ll walk you through any fees that could apply in your circumstances.
