Looking to move up to a larger home or better property? You probably understand how it all works and what is involved in getting your next home loan but there are always new options out there and finding the right home loan can still be a bit of a headache without help. The loan you had with your previous home may not be appropriate for your new home due to changes in your lifestyle or you may have different needs.

Your Mortgage Options can help sort through your options.
You may be wanting to buy a second home in Perth as an investment property. Or you may be buying an investment property in another state. Perhaps you are investing as part of your retirement plan.
Whatever your motives, property investments can be a great way to create wealth, through capital growth, rental income returns and tax advantages with negative gearing.
Remember, it is essential that you view an investment property as a long term proposition. Prices rise and fall over time so you must look at the long term. Talk to a Perth Mortgage Broker and understand your options.
When your property increases in value, that increase is called capital growth. It is, in effect, a profit. If you were to sell the house you would get more than you paid for it.
This refers to when your borrowing costs exceed the income from your investment property. Negative Gearing can offer tax benefits by allowing you to deduct your borrowing costs from your total income, provided that all investments are genuine.
But as with any investment, Negative Gearing can be complex and there is a risk that you may make a loss. If you were forced to sell the house because you can't keep up repayments, you may make a loss.
Life is constantly changing, so it is important your home loan fits in with your life, not the other way round. If your home loan hasn't kept up to speed with you, maybe it's time to refinance.
Chances are refinancing your home loan could suit your needs better, not to mention save you thousands of dollars over the life of the home loan. The money saved can be put towards renovations, an investment property, consolidating debt, helping your children set up home or on a holiday.
There can be costs associated with refinancing so you need to assess the long term benefits of a lower rate against these costs and don't choose a new mortgage based purely on it's annual percentage rate.
For example, if you refinance and save $200 a month on your repayments, but your exit costs amount to $2,000, then it would take you 10 months to break even. If you are planning in staying in the house for longer than 10 months then you will be able to save money long term.
To have a better idea of what's involved in refinancing your home loan, just give us a call or send us an email and we can help you assess your options
A Deposit Bond is a guarantee or bond that substitutes for a cash deposit between signing contracts and settlement when you buy a property. The maximum amount of the deposit bond is usually up to 10% of the purchase price.
There are two types of this facility, Standard and Long Term.
The Deposit Power products available include both Standard and Long Term bonds. The Standard bond is used for purchases with settlement within 6 months. The application fee is generally 1.2% of the guarantee amount with a minimum fee of $100.00
Long Term Deposit Bonds are for settlement terms between 6 months and 36 months and are suitable for purchases that involve longer term settlements such as properties under construction, vacant land or buying off the plan. The minimum fee payable for a Long Term Guarantee is generally $500.00
Some of us have a range of loans at various interest rates with repayments that can lead to a bit of a juggling act at the end of the month. A solution to this monthly ritual may be to consolidate all your debts into one regular repayment either through a personal loan, mortgage refinancing, borrowing against the equity in your home or transferring your credit card balances to a card with lower fees and interest charges.
By consolidating your debts you can often significantly reduce your monthly repayment commitment and can, if effectively managed, be an excellent financial tool.
When you have reduced your monthly repayments you can breathe a little easier but borrowers need to be aware that all is not fixed by simply consolidating your debts. If you were to simply pay the minimum amount required on the new loan, any short term loans now have become longer term loans and therefore the interest paid over the life of that portion of the loan is increased. You need to use some to the savings achieved by consolidating to repay the overall debt.
Even if you are keeping up with all your monthly commitments debt consolidation can be an effective financial tool to pay off your debts quicker. If you consolidate your high interest loans into one low interest loan and continue to repay the same amount as you were before consolidating, your debt will be reduced faster due to the lower interest rate being charged on the new loan.
