Redraw vs Home Loan Offset Account

When you take out a home loan there are a few options you can choose to make repayments more manageable. However, choosing a financial institution and interest rates aren't the only things you need to consider. It’s also important to look for eligible home loan options which can reduce your interest repayments and give you flexibility to pay off your home loan sooner.

Refinancing to Make The Most from the Equity in Your Home

Refinancing your home loan could be a value saving option if you're looking to access additional funds. With housing prices rising so dramatically over the last couple of years, existing homeowners have the opportunity to access the equity in their home to spend on things like home improvements, debt consolidation, buying a new car or another large ticket item such as a caravan or motorbike. You could even help your child break into the housing market!

Is a Reverse Mortgage a Good Idea to Help in Retirement

A reverse mortgage is similar to a home loan but without the need to make regular payments. It gives people living on a pension or fixed income the ability to draw on part of the equity in their home; enabling them to live more comfortably.
