- You can get a lower interest rate now
In most cases refinance will give you a better rate as many lenders tend to offer new customers a bigger discount on rates. However, always try to negotiate with your current lender first.
- You can have more loan features
You should consider refinancing with a lender who can give you more flexible and suitable loan features as these may offer not only flexibility but also money-saving.
- You can borrow against your equity
If you’ve been thinking about investment or renovation, you may be able to refinance your loan to release some equity.
‘Equity” – the difference between the value of your property and the balance of the mortgage.
- You can reduce your loan term
If you can make additional repayments, you could save the money in the long term and pay less interest overall. Refinance to a different lender to take advantage if current lender won’t allow you.
- You can have cash rebate
You can benefit from the intense competition between banks by switching to a lender that has a competitive interest rate and a cash rebate. You can get up to $4,000 cash back now.
