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

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.

Your home loan options
Making your first big step towards buying a home? It's crucial to be across your mortgage options as a first homebuyer.
Opting for a variable interest rate on your home loan means it'll fluctuate as the market moves throughout your repayment term.
On the other hand, fixing your rate locks it in for a pre-defined period. This can bring with it greater certainty around your budget.
It's important not to set and forget when it comes to your home loan. If you find a more competitive offer, it may be worth refinancing.
If you're looking to build a new house, construction loans are specifically designed to cater to the different needs associated with doing so.
A guarantor essentially acts as a safety net for your lender, as they sign onto your loan to agree to pay it off should you become unable to do so.
Purchasing a property as an investment brings with it different specifications from a lender. It's crucial to know what your options are.
Businesses big or small may wish to purchase a property for commercial purposes, which are also different from a standard loan.
Your home loan may give you an interest-only option, which allows you to exclusively pay interest on your loan for a set period.
Just because your finances may be slightly more complicated as a self-employed individual doesn't mean you can't take out a home loan.
Some lenders may allow you to apply for a home loan with alternative documents, such as tax returns, BAS and ABN registration.
