Is your loan right for you?
Is now the best time to review your loan?

Take advantage of lowest interest rates, BUT don’t get taken advantage of.

There are indeed record low interest rates out there, and yes, there has never been a better time to review your loans. BUT, people are unfortunately getting attracted by low interest rates and sometimes choosing loan products or strategies that can cost them more because they are not right for them.

And we’re often hearing stories of people trying to take advantage of the low rates, but instead, getting taken advantage of.

Get the BEST deal, not just another loan

So while a lot of brokers will tell you it’s a great time to review loans, and it is, it’s a lot more important to have the right person guide you to the BEST deal for you, rather than just another loan with a ‘lower interest rate’ that might not be the best option for your future and goals.

Getting it wrong

As a home buyer or a property investor, getting the best financial foundation for your specific circumstance and goals is critical. Too often, people don’t consider it or are not informed which can lead to:

  • Lost savings, 
  • Not getting your dream home,
  • Not being able to achieve your financial goals, or worse;
  • Suffering financially in the longer term.
 Different loan types and products

There are a range of home loan types to suit different needs and circumstances and each bank offers different products for each type! Here are the most common ones:

  • Fixed Rate Loans
  • Variable Rate Loans
  • Investment Loans
  • Home Equity / Line of Credit Loans
  • Interest Only Loans
  • Guarantor Loans
  • Low Doc Loans
  • Non-Conforming Loans

Which is best?

So, to understand if your loan is right for you, or if it is the best time to review your loan, you need to understand how each type of loan benefits what type of situation. On top of that, you’ll also then need to review all the available products for that loan type and to see which one suits your circumstances best. Some types may suit you best, but some products of those types can defeat the benefit of using that type, if they are not suited for your specific circumstances.

 What you should do

It’s not easy, especially if you’re not dealing with loans everyday, to determine which type and product is best for you. Hence, it is always a good idea to speak to trusted experts who:

  1. have strong expertise in loan and finance strategy and 
  2. actually do their best to understand your situation and goals to work in your best interest

All brokers should be doing this, but unfortunately, many don’t and it’s not easy to spot which ones do or don’t.

No cost

The good news is, while there should already generally be no cost to work with a broker, there is also no additional cost to get a good broker who has strong expertise and actually understands your requirements. You just need to find the right one.
