Of course most people do not want to lock in all of their mortgage to a 1-year rates, but Westpac home loan rates are all quite good and as mortgage brokers we can often squeeze a little more from some of the rates that may seem not quite as good. We can do this will almost all of the banks, but some are easier to get low home loan rates from.
The key is to always ensure that you get a competitive rate – you will never always have the lowest home loan rate – fact.
Westpac Review Should Consider Offset Loans
Often people will like to have a savings account with their bank which is separate to their mortgage.
This is all very well; however often the rate of return offered by the banks is low compared to even the lower home loan interest rates like what Westpac are currently offering.
Westpac are one of the few banks to offer an offset loan.
While these loans may sound quite complex, they are a great mechanism that is rarely used.
Even the staff at Westpac struggle to explain the benefits, but as mortgage advisers we can explain how the offset loans work and why you should consider them.
Consolidate Other Debt Too
Have you got any other debt?
There are a lot of people that have other debt – debt that is costing more than the mortgage.
It could be credit card debt, store cards or hire purchase or even personal loans.
Some of this debt is very expensive with interest rates of close to 30% which is crazy when there is the opportunity to have the same debt at mortgage interest rates.
We call this debt consolidation, however it is done at mortgage interest rates not some finance company rates that we often see advertised. With any of this type of lending you need to be careful and ensure that you are not putting yourself in a situation where you are paying too much in either fees or interest rates plus importantly not extending the loan term.
