Over the years I have helped hundreds of people manage their finances and find the right home loan.
It’s common knowledge that after a few years, your original loan won’t be as competitive as it once was so it’s worth scoping the market to see what else is on offer.
This process is known as refinancing and is the act of replacing an existing home loan with a new one.
People typically refinance for one of four reasons:
- To get a better interest rate and lower their weekly repayments
- To access their equity for future investments
- To renovate
- To consolidate debts
While changing your home loan may lead to lower interest rates and more flexible features, it can also come with additional costs so it’s essential to calculate both the savings and the expenses involved.
