Sticking with your current home loan may be the easy option but new research shows it could be costing you dearly.
In the ever-changing mortgage market, there is always something new coming to the table. So even if you feel comfortable with your current home loan, it pays not to be complacent. A recent study shows loyalty doesn’t always pay – especially when it comes to financial products like home loans.
Rate savings aplenty…but often only for new customers
According to the research, while the Reserve Bank cut the official cash rate twice in 2015 - lowering rates by a total of 0.5%, some lenders have been more willing than others to pass rate cuts onto their home loan customers.
In fact, a number of home loan lenders have lowered their mortgage rates by as much as 0.45%. On a $300,000, 30-year loan, that’s a saving of $81 each month.
But here’s the catch. Many of these cracking deals are only available for new customers.
It can feel like a slap in the face for loyal customers, but you don’t have to sit back and cop it.

Refinancing doesn’t just open the door to possible rate savings. It can help you achieve personal goals especially if you are planning key projects like a home renovation, investing in property, or even buying a new car.
