PreApproveMyLoan is here to both pre-approve your loan and find the best new home loan that suits you. PreApproveMyLoan is here to help demystify and explain all aspects of home loans and loan products so you can make the right loan decision.

Costing out your new home loan?

The initial decision in considering new home-loan is generally determined by how much you can afford without being overburdened or the need to consolidate your debt.

Some of the things that will influence this will include earning potential, the length of the loan, size of the deposit, the interest rate environment and the size of previous outstanding liabilities. If you want to gauge just how much you can afford, you might find the PreApproveMyLoan range of home loan calculators helpful.

Use your new home loan deposit wisely

A new home loan often requires a detailed loan budget plan, which is included in our comprehensive First Home Buyers Guide. Having the maximum deposit that you can save will reduce the size of your loan principal amount or your mortgage, which will drastically reduce the amount of interest that you will be charged. Furthermore, not only will a solid deposit offer interest savings, it will also offer other savings, in ensuring that the borrower will not need to expend any money on Lenders Mortgage Insurance (LMI). LMI is usually a requirement of loans with smaller deposits and a loan-to-valuation ratio (LVR) in excess of 80% of the property value.

Also, if your home loan allows it, extra repayments will also reduce the amount of interest paid on your loan. To illustrate this effect, you may find our extra loan repayments calculator helpful.

Avoiding Potential Traps in New Home Loans

  • The loan with the lowest interest rate is not always the best loan. Some borrowers will try to lure borrowers in with "honeymoon interest rates", which will rapidly rise once the honeymoon period is over.

  • While fixed-term home loans may offer some protection from rising interest rates, they usually do not allow for extra repayments. This means that while you may save on interest, you are unable to put any extra money towards your loan to reduce the affect of interest.
  • Exorbitant fees can often turn out to be more expensive than a slightly lower interest rate, eating into any potential loan repayment savings.
  • Make sure you will use all the features that are a part of the loan. There is no use paying for something along with increased interest or fees, which is not required.
  • Remember to take into account the other costs of the home loan: – stamp duty, conveyancing, cost of inspections, loan application fees when working out what you can afford.

Home Loan Refinancers

Life is full of constant changes, it's important your home loan fits in with your life and 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 refinance could suit your needs better, not to mention save you thousands of dollars over the life of the home loan. To have a better idea of what's involved in refinance, read these online notes. If you need any more help, just ask.

Reasons to look at home loan refinancing

If you've had your current home loan for 3 or more years, why not review it online to see if it stacks up to your needs today? It’s worth asking yourself; what are your needs right now?

"I'm looking for a competitive rate"

Finding a more competitive interest rate is a great reason to refinance. Do your sums first to make sure that fees and charges don't erode your gains. By doing your research, you might find the best home loan rate and terms that suits your needs.

"I just want to be sure"

There's nothing wrong with giving your home loan a "health check.” Taking a look at your home loan periodically is always a good idea, even if it may still be working very well for you. If it doesn't meet all your current needs or you're paying for features you don't need or use, maybe it's time to look at refinancing.

"We're thinking of renovating and refinancing"

Want to renovate but don't have the cash on hand? You may be able to get additional funds by accessing the equity you have in your home loan through refinancing. Another way of refinancing is by changing your home loan from principle principal and interest to interest only, so that way you only pay interest on the loan money you use.

"There have been some big changes in my life"

The longer you're on the planet, the more you know how life can change, sometimes overnight.

The birth of a baby, marriage, separation, re-marriage, an unexpected pay rise, or you may decide to start your own business.

These are perfect times to review your current home loan and see how refinancing could produce a loan that works harder for you now.

"Time to consolidate my debts"

Like to save big time on interest payments? Silly question. Why not consolidate your credit cards, car loans or personal loans into your home loan? There may be a facility that allows you to do it with your current home loan or other large loan. The interest rate is much less so you could save thousands of dollars.

It's more convenient as well. Instead of making multiple repayments there's only one single, regular loan repayment - much easier.

What will it cost me to refinance?

Refinancing your home loan can save you lots of money, however, there may be some upfront costs you need to budget for. You need to weigh up the short-term pain for the long term gain. Fees may include:

  • Exit fees
  • Establishment /application fees
  • Loan approval fees
  • Settlement and handling fees
  • Additional mortgage stamp duty (if you increase your current home loan)
  • Mortgage registration (to let the State Titles Office know you've changed either your home loan provider or type of home loan)

Here's a list of the sorts of things you need to provide. To see exactly what's required for the different loans use our application checklist.
