Penrith home owners could be wasting bucket loads of cash simply by failing to review their home loan says Penrith mortgage broker - Paul Holland.
A recent survey by ME Bank confirms that 90% of Australians love a bargain. No surprises there, after all, who wants to pay more than necessary for anything? And it turns out we go to great lengths to score a good deal, taking the time to compare price on things like travel and electronics, and reviewing phone or power contracts.
But only six out of ten people compare their home loan.
That’s crazy because even a small saving on a loan interest rate can put money back in your hip pocket.
The savings can stack up
Let’s crunch some numbers to see what sort of savings Penrith home owners could enjoy by shopping around for a home loan.
On a home loan in Penrith of, say, $400,000, switching to a new loan with a 1% cheaper rate, can see you save $130 each month on loan repayments - and save more than $35,000 in interest charges over the life of the loan.
Is this sort of rate saving realistic? Definitely. There is a massive range in home loan interest rates at present and you need to be sure your Penrith home loan comes in at the “good value” end of the spectrum.
With big savings up for grabs, it’s definitely worth talking to my team of Penrith home loan specialists to see if your loan continues to be competitive. We have access to over 20 different lenders, and I can let you know in just a matter of minutes if you’re paying more than necessary.
