As the New Zealand economy reboots post-COVID lockdown, banks have slashed interest rates to help buyers. Currently, interest rates are the lowest they have been for over ten years.
So is it a good time to refinance your home loan? Absolutely, but only if you do it the right way.
The low rates available provide the perfect opportunity to lock in a fixed-rate long-term. Rather than going directly to your bank, refinancing with the help of a mortgage broker could help pay off your loan faster. A broker can do what the bank won’t, tailoring your loan structure to your unique situation.
Here are some recent rates we’ve secured for clients:
Two-years at 2.69%
Three-years at 2.99%
Five-years at 3.19%
Be mindful that refinancing can incur costs. We can work with your current bank or an alternative lender to negotiate a competitive new rate for you, and best of all, you won’t have to lift a finger.
