Moving House — Is your old home loan still right?
Now is the perfect time to ask if your old home mortgage is still right for you. You’re refinancing anyway, to cover your new home, so while you’re at it, why not make sure you have the most appropriate loan for your situation? One that makes the most of your current equity.
Don’t just stay with your existing bank for your second mortgage
It’s tempting to just stay with your existing bank and simply change the limit of your second mortgage. But that isn’t always the best option, for several reasons…
Banks work harder for new customers
Unfortunately, banks usually offer their best deals to new customers, not existing customers. They know they have to work harder to attract new business because — like you — most existing customers would rather stay with their current bank than go through the hassle of shopping around and changing banks to maximise their equity.
If you’re borrowing more, you have more to bargain with
If your second mortgage is bigger than your first, you’ll have more bargaining chips, and you could well get a better deal. If you simply increase the limit on your existing mortgage, your rates and conditions probably won’t change at all, so you’ll be missing out on the benefits of increased borrowings.
The mortgage market is constantly changing. New home loan products and new lenders come out almost daily, and the economy has had a big impact on home loan rates, fees, features and conditions. Your own needs have probably changed quite a bit too. New additions to the family, investments, new cars, changing jobs, kids moving out, increased equity… So the setup and conditions of your first mortgage may be completely inappropriate for your second.
