What are my home loan options?

Moving would be so easy if we sold our current home at the same time as buying a new one. But things don’t always work out that way. In fact, there can be a whole range of reasons why you buy a new property before selling your current home.

Your home may take a little longer to sell than expected, or you could come across your ideal property before even placing your present home on the market.

What are my options for upgrading?

Upgrading simply means selling your current home and purchasing one that's a little further up the property ladder. There can be a raft of good reasons for upgrading. As the kids get bigger you may need more space. You may be hoping to secure a better location. You may be keen to trade up from an apartment to a house. Or you may be relocating for work purposes.

Whatever your reason for upgrading, it’s important to think through the financial aspects. You have probably built up sufficient home equity to be able to afford an upgrade but you should also consider how you'll fund the move.

Refinancing is an option

The process of upgrading can be an opportunity to refinance your home loan. This involves taking out a new loan to pay off your current mortgage. Refinancing can also give you access to improved loan features or a more competitive interest rate.

Or you could take advantage of loan portability

Alternatively, your existing home loan may offer a feature known as 'portability'. This means you can take the same loan with you when you move from one property to another. If you’re happy with your current loan this option can provide savings on the costs that may apply to refinancing. It can also be very convenient as you're dealing with the same lender and retain the same account number.
