Refinancing a home loan case study

Customer: Max and Kate 

Type of loan: Refinancing

Loan: $450,000



Max and Kate were unhappy with their home loan and the interest rate they were paying. They were four years into a 30-year loan term and didn't feel their product, nor their lender was meeting their needs. Their current interest rate was 4.24% per annum on their owner-occupied home. They were making Principal and Interest monthly payments and their interest cost for the year was $19,080 per annum.

Max called the team at AMEGA FS and we were able to refinance his home loan to another lender which reduced interest costs and in addition offered better product features that the clients wanted.

By refinancing, we were able to source a lender with an interest rate of 3.69% which equates to an interest cost of $16,605 per annum. This was a huge interest saving of $2,475 in the first year. They also moved to a loan with a multiple offset feature which allowed them to bucket their money and savings and had all their money working for them.
