How Can I Compare Home Loans?

For first home buyers, comparing homes can be as easy as visiting several open homes.

Comparing home loans, on the other hand, might seem less easily done.

That’s because, unlike a house, a home loan isn’t something you can visit, look at from the street or walk through, so to speak.

You can’t check out each ‘room’ like you can a house, or feel the physical consequences of certain attributes - such as insulation or a north facing living room getting the sun in a house, or certain features of a loan and how they will affect you.

Being less tangible, it is harder to get a feel for home loan products than it is for homes themselves.

By using a home loan comparison calculator however, you can at least get more of an idea of the comparative merits of different lending products.

You can use these online tools to compare the effect of differing loan fees and interest rates over the term of a loan.

When you’re ready to get a more detailed picture of how different home loans compare, a mortgage broker can provide expert advice on the various products out there.
