There has never been a better time to refinance than now! There has never been so much on offer. Refinancing your Home Loan (or investment loans) is a great way to achieve your financial goals. Although only 25% of all homeowner’s refinance over the lifetime of the loan.
Let’s go through some commonly asked questions and clear some things up:
How Does Refinancing Work?
Often, clients are hesitant on refinancing as they are worried that the process will be just as intense as getting the loan in the first place. This isn’t the case!
Once you find a mortgage broker that suits your needs all you need to do is provide the requested information, select a lender that your broker has proposed (we generally give our clients 3-5 different options). The broker will submit your application and communicate with you and your lender.
On settlement, your new lender will payout your old lender.
Why Should I Refinance My Loan?
- Decrease your loan repayments
By refinancing with a lower interest rate your repayments on your loan will decrease. This can save you tens of thousands of dollars over the lifetime of your loan.
- Cash-out for renovations
Do you have the ick for your home, but don’t want to part ways? Many Australians move towards renovating. By refinancing you can access the equity in your home to fund the renovations.
- Investment down payment
Are you looking at purchasing an investment property? Again, like renovating you can refinance your current home to access equity for a down payment for an investment property.
- Consolidate Debt
Payout your credit card, car loan, personal loan under your home loan. Meaning you’re paying one interest rate, one repayment and one lot of fees and charges.
- Unhappy with the current lender
You may be unhappy with your current lender for many reasons and wish for a change.
- Change in circumstances
Your circumstances before you originally may have applied for your loan have improved and therefore you may be wishing to refinance to a big four lender.
Is There Anything I Should Look Out For When Refinancing?
- Just because you have been approved once before doesn’t 100% guarantee you will be approved again
Your credit score may have decreased from late/missed repayments. You may have a high debt to income ratio, your property may have devalued, or you may have had a change in income. All these factors can have an impact on you being approved with a new lender.
- Cost of refinancing
There can be hidden costs when breaking contact with a lender, it is important to understand these before you go ahead with refinancing to avoid finding out later down the track and having to fork out additional funds. You can find these costs in your loan contract. There are several ways to reduce the costs involved including adding the fees and charges on top of your loan.
- Only looking at the interest rates
Often low-interest rates can be reflected with high fees and charges throughout the lifetime of the loan costing you more overall.
