Have you noticed of late significant increases in the interest rates you are paying on your loans?
If you have, it is due to the governing body for the banks (APRA) directing them to build their cash reserves. It may be time to look at one of the non major lenders.
With increases in investment interest rates and new restrictions on interest only loans, it is becoming tougher to borrow for investment.
In today’s climate of rate rises and banks lower borrowing tolerances it is now even more important to engage the services of a professional mortgage broker and not rely on any one bank for a solution.
Competition among banks has never been greater with large variations in home loan products, interest rates and lending policies.
Some banks will not lend at all to purchase investment properties.
Releasing the equity in your current property or finding the benefits you may be entitled to with different banks could be found by exploring your options with a professional broker. They could find opportunities to help advance your portfolio or streamline your current lending you may not even be aware of.
With the lending markets constantly changing it makes sense to re-evaluate your loans from time to time.
A discussion with a professional mortgage broker who could assist you with all important loan structuring, product selection and interest rates may enhance the performance of your property investment.
