How do I know what is the right time to refinance?
The loan you have now might have suited your needs when you first bought your home, and there might have even been different mortgages available then, than there is now. However, times can change, and so can loan requirements. Your current loan may not be the best option for you and your family now. Or maybe you have a number of smaller loans as well as your home loan, and you realise you are paying way too much in repayments. Being able to refinance can mean putting all those loans into one new loan, or taking out a new home loan with a better rate or lower fees. While it may seem easier to keep things where they are now, finding a refinancer could save you thousands of dollars and help you avoid prolonging the life of your loan.

Do you know how your home can help?
Your current home can play a big role in refinancing your loan. If you have been paying off your home loan with no major dramas over the years, you have probably built up a lot of what’s called equity. When it comes to refinancing, equity can be solid gold. Equity is the market value of your home, minus the balance of your loan. The more equity you have, the easier it can be to hit your refinancing goals. Lenders will use another equation based around how much you want to borrow, up against the market value of your property, and come up with a percentage. Anything greater than 80% can be labelled as high risk.
