As time marches on, situations change. Perhaps you’ve changed jobs? Or there’s a new addition to the family? Maybe you would just like a better rate? Maybe it’s the advent of school fees, or perhaps the kids have flown the coop? Or maybe that leaking shower or tired kitchen has just reached the end of its life.
A shift in circumstances may mean it is time to revisit your home finances. For many, the idea of refinancing a mortgage can be daunting. Fees and fixed versus variable interest rates need to be considered.
The right refinanced loan might help you to pay off your mortgage faster and for less, clear unhealthy debt or upgrade and add value your home, all of which are steps in the right direction.
