Have you reviewed your home loan in the last 2-3 years? If not, your current loan may be costing you more than it needs to be.
Refinancing could potentially save you thousands of dollars over the lifetime of your loan.
What we Do
What is refinancing?
Why refinance your home loan?
Reduce Your Repayments
Refinancing could mean lower monthly home loan repayments and more money back in your pocket. This is because some lenders may have reduced their rates since you first got your home loan.
Switch Between Fixed & Variable
You can lock your loan in with a fixed rate for a certain period or choose to switch to a variable rate instead. A fixed rate can give you the peace of mind with guaranteed monthly repayments or a variable rate may mean lower interest rates.
Refinancing can allow you to access the equity you’ve built up in your home and put it to good use. Your equity could be used to buy an investment property, renovate your house or free up cash to purchase a car/plan a wedding/take a holiday.
Through refinancing you can choose to consolidate your debts (credit cards, personal loans and other debts) to reduce your monthly repayments. This isn’t always the best idea. Check with your broker first.
Access New Product Features
There are hundreds of different loan types all with different features. Through refinancing you can access features that are right for your current financial situation such as flexible repayments and a redraw facility.
If you used a guarantor to obtain a home loan, refinancing can release them. It’s a good idea to remove them as soon as possible to avoid hindering their ability to invest in real estate for example.
“Great team, very genuine and knowledgeable. Am saving a couple of hundred a month compared to my old home loan with CBA.
Switching was ridiculously easy, should have done it sooner.”

What are the costs associated with refinancing?
There are some costs associated with refinancing that you need to consider to make sure it’s right for you. These include:
• Exit Fees (discharge fees, early termination fees & break costs)
• Borrowing Costs From the New Lender (loan application fees, valuation fees, settlement fees)
• Stamp Duty
• Lender’s Mortgage Insurance
Not all of these fees will apply to you. However, it is important to factor in these costs before refinancing to ensure it is worthwhile. Get in touch today to find out if refinancing makes sense for you.
What's the difference between fixed and variable rate loans?
If you have a variable interest rate loan, your monthly home loan repayments will change as interest rates change.
If you have a fixed interest rate loan, your monthly home loan repayments will remain the same even as interest rates change.

There is no rule that states you have to remain with your current lender when refinancing.
Similarly, there is no rule that states you have to switch lenders when refinancing.
