When was the last time you reviewed your mortgage?
If your answer was more than two years ago, you may be paying too much. Your finances should not be set and forget. We encourage our clients to refinance when the time is right or to consolidate their debt if the circumstances allow.
You should be looking to review your home loan every two years, or in any of the following circumstances:
- You’re offered a pay rise and/or a new job
- You have lost your job
- You begin growing your family
- Your children begin to support themselves financially
- Increasing or decreasing property values
- At the end of a Fixed Rate period
- Interest rates change
Reviewing your mortgage often ends up in the ‘too-hard’ basket, but with our support, it’s really not that hard. If you don’t take the time to review it, you may be missing out on some great savings.
We want to help you find the best mortgage for your individual needs.
Consolidating your personal debt can be a successful strategy to free up your monthly cashflow to tackle the debt in a neatly wrapped-up recurring payment. Secondly, consolidating your high-interest personal debt at a low-interest home loan rate can aid with tackling your debt, as less of the overall monthly payment will be going to interest.
Better interest rate
Saving money on your monthly interest is the surest way to pay off your home loan sooner as an owner-occupier. Maintaining your monthly P&I repayment and reducing your monthly interest charge is a proven strategy to accelerate your debt reduction.
You can improve cashflow on your investment property with Interest Only repayments by reducing your interest rate.
