The start of a new financial year is an ideal time to review your home loan – it can put money back in your pocket.
Taking a few minutes to take stock of your mortgage makes a lot of sense. As a major financial commitment, your loan is likely to be one of your household’s largest outgoings. So it needs to provide you with a competitive rate while still providing flexible features.
How does the rate compare?
You don’t have to wait for the Reserve Bank to cut rates to get a better interest rate on your loan. It’s possible to make big savings by switching to a cheaper mortgage – do your research and compare your home loan against other home loans in the market.
Check the fees
Ongoing monthly fees do little more than add to the loan cost, yet it’s an expense that can easily be avoided.

There’s more to car insurance than finding the cheapest premium, it’s about the right features at the right price.
Having the right features can help you get back on the road quicker and with less stress. Always read the PDS to know exactly what you are covered for and the limits. In particular, look out for the excess as a large excess can cancel out the savings you made in the premium.
