Reasons to refinance
1. Secure a better interest rate
One of the key reasons home owners choose to refinance their loan is to secure a lower interest rate and reduce their monthly repayments. However, refinancing can come with some costs, so it's essential to weigh up the savings of refinancing against the expense involved.
2. Switch between variable/fixed rates
If you’d prefer the certainty that repayments will stay the same for a period of time, you may wish to switch to a fixed rate. Conversely, you may decide you'd like to take advantage of a lower variable rate as you can accept the risk that rates may rise in future.
