Why You Should Regularly Review Your Lending
Updated: Mar 9
In one of our earlier blogs, we explored why it may be the time for you to refinance your home loan. Recently, we've seen banks significantly cut their interest rates. Reviewing your current lending is one of the best things that you can do for your personal finances as it can lead to saving you thousands of dollars per year.
At REIF, we work with our clients to review their personal lending every two years. It's important to consider refinancing your loans, including your current mortgage rate for various different reasons, which will be explored. We will also share the various types of loans that we assist clients with when the consider reviewing current interest rates that are available from lenders.
Types of Refinancing That REIF Assists With
There are various different lending options that we can assist clients with to ensure that they're not paying more than they need to from their lenders. We have listed below the types of refinancing that we assist with:
Home Loans - If you're currently making repayments on a mortgage, we suggest reviewing your current mortgage rates every two years. Recently, we helped a client refinance their home loan. We helped them to find the best interest rate on the market to save them $8,500 alone on their mortgage repayments annually. When we look at your lending we turn to the lenders to see what interest rates they're offering and find you the best deal to put more money back into your pocket.
Car Loans - From the example above, on one of our recent refinancing success stories, we were also able to save that client an additional $3,000 per year on their car loan repayments. In total, that client will be saving $11,500 per year on these two loans that they've taken out.

Some Reasons For Reviewing Lending
Consolidating all of your personal debts into your home loan can save you thousands in interest charges. This can save you from paying multiple interest payment fees and can make it easier to manage all of your finances.
As you pay off your mortgage, you are accumulating equity in your home. Depending on how much equity that you have in your home, you may be able to use it to fund an investment property or make improvements to your current home.

Getting A Lower Interest Rate
When you review your lending, we help you to look for a lower interest rate. The lower the interest rate means that there is more money being saved against your lending each year and you aren't paying unnecessary charges. If the fixed rate period on your loan is due to expire (fixed terms are commonly between one to five years), you may be eligible to switch lenders and find a comparable or lower rate.
