Refinancing your your property
When refinancing property there are many loan products and different types of lenders available. Professional mortgage brokers have access to a comprehensive mix of large and small banks, building societies and credit unions. They can provide you with a rundown on suitable loan products and deals. The loan term impacts the repayment amount and interest paid over the life of the loan. Interest payments, loan costs, monthly repayments can all be calculated for your benefit. Convenient online loan calculators are available for assistance.
Offset accounts with deposited savings attached to home loans helps reduce the interest accumulated on the loan amount. The loan term is reduced quite considerably.
Note some lenders offer partial offset only.
Similar to the savings offered by a full offset account, a redraw facility allows borrowers to place their income, savings and extra repayments into the loan and enables them to withdraw funds when needed. It is an alternative to storing money in a savings account, where the interest earned is taxable. For those seeking stability and flexibility, a solution may be to consider a fixed rate loan. Loan fees may include application and discharge fees plus monthly or annual account keeping fees. But depending on the type of loan there could be fees for making additional repayments, opting for a rate lock or breaking a loan term early.
If you have built up extra funds in your home loan, some lenders offer full or partial repayment for set periods. These can be helpful if you are starting a family, changing careers or taking time off, and need to hold payments until your cash flow returns to normal.
