I know what mortgage I want. Why should I talk to a Savvy broker?

Most homebuyers have a good idea about what they want right now, but our brokers are trained to predict what might change because of time or events.

Whether it’s your first home or you’re an old hand at buying houses, mortgage brokers are can help you compare home loan product-based opportunities to suit a myriad of different objectives, individuals – and possible futures. No matter what your main priority currently is, it’s likely they’ll save you money in the longer term.

  • Family homebuyers: Let’s say you’ve decided to start a family or add to your brood. Variable-rate mortgage repayments allow for greater freedom to take a fresh look at your home loan every couple of years. Comparing the available options for refinancing your home loan now and then might far outweigh the benefits of opting for short-term gains – and a broker’s job doesn’t end when your loan is settled. They check on your situation every couple of years, revaluate your current package and recommend more relevant options.
  • Career-driven couples or singles:  A promotion might see you suddenly want more from your home loan. Switching lenders can open up multiple new possibilities when you talk to a broker. They connect you with more lenders so you can compare more home loan options. For instance, did you know professional package home loans offer interest rate deductions based on your occupation or role at work?
  • Home renovators: There are plenty of properties around that need modernising and that doesn’t have to involve sitting on your hands for years saving up. You can use equity that’s been building over time in your home as a cost-effective way to pay for repairs or renovations. Talk to your local mortgage broker about opening a line of credit
  • Non-conventional funds: Let’s say you’ve just come into an inheritance. It’s your big chance to get on the property ladder but you’re worried a lender will want to see savings you’ve accumulated over time. Mortgage brokers have access to specialist products like non-genuine savings home loans to help homebuyers who sell assets or shares, are lucky enough to get a significant cash gift or inherit some money.

I’m a first-time buyer. Should I speak to a mortgage broker?
