Key health check considerations

Loan type

Fixed versus variable: A fixed-rate mortgage locks in the interest rate you pay for a specified period, so you always know what you’ll pay from month to month. A variable-rate mortgage means the interest rate can change, especially if the Reserve Bank raises or lowers their cash rate. Your repayments therefore fluctuate with the market.

Fixed rates provide certainty, but variable rates allow you to pay more than the required amount, saving you more over time. Which is best for you? We can help you work out you best loan type.

Loan Term

Most new loans are for 25 or 30 years. A longer term means more time, but also more interest payable. We’ll find out how different loan terms impact your repayments, and a find the ‘sweet spot’ that works best for you.

Interest rate

There’s a surprising variation in interest rates available. But the lowest rate isn’t always the best. We’ll explain why, and help find a loan with the best rate for you.

Repayment options

Most people repay their loan monthly. If you switch that to a fortnightly payment, you can save over the life of the loan. Let’s see if that’s an option that suits you.

Loan features

Offset, redraw, linked credit cards and more. Taking advantage of bundled loan features can make life easier and save on interest and fees. Our brokers can explain there features and find a loan that works for you.

Fees and charges

Extra charges are always worth keeping an eye on. Sometimes it’s actually worth paying a bit more. Sometimes not. We’ll weigh up the options and explain the impact of your overall repayments.

Home equity

If you’ve owned your property for a while, you may have built up ‘equity’ – an increase in house value could mean you can access a more favourable loan with less interest to pay.
