(oh and not to forget: show you how to save lots of cash along the way too)
We luurve getting involved at the planning stage… it enables us to guide and hold your hand through this scary, exciting, and anxiety driven time in your life..
So, here are some calculators to help you along the way…
Hey, - we especially love the Budget Planner – this will also help you with your finance application as all lenders want to see a detailed plan of your monthly cost of living.. and if you want a deeper discussion about renting versus buying or understanding your savings requirements better, just connect with us here… we'd love to hear from you..
That’s why we have delivered to you the calculator to show you all the government charges that apply depending on the state you purchase in..
We also give you a guide on other purchase costs outside of the government charges and for those who qualify for some first home buyer concessions, we have the direct link to the government websites that show you what additional grants may be available!
We also suggest you check out our WORD page, which explains the different interest rate types as well as repayment options.. for much more detail – our First Home Buyers online course is the way to go!
The team were a little concerned about including the “Borrowing Power” calculator … we really want to make sure you understand this is a VERY GENERAL guide only.. To really understand your borrowing power it is imperative you speak with a well-trained, professionally qualified expert (us, of course!)
Well, we’re glad you asked!
Whilst we love property, we are passionate about money and good cashflow management!
In fact we dedicate a whole chapter on this in our First Home Buyers online course(when you hover over this, it links to M – school).. Here we have some awesome calculators that will show you (with a little tweaking) how you can save and put money back into your own pocket rather than increasing the banks’ profits.. we call this smarter money!
Well, we get asked this all the time; and there is no quick answer!
The best loan should not be just about interest rates; what are your objectives?, goals?, how do you manage your money?, what money requirements do you have today and in the future?, what’s your cash flow management strategy?, is the lenders’ ethical stance important?, when are you planning on selling/upgrading/ investing… and what are the fees to get out of your loan as well as the fees to enter the new mortgage…
There could be break costs, discharge fees, legal fees, early termination fees and hidden entry fees not so clear on their website until you read the fine print.. these all need to be taken into consideration before determining whether switching lenders and refinancing is really going to save you Moula!
Ok... so the Lease Calculator has nothing to do with switching your loan & saving but we thought the Mortgage Switching Calculator was lonely being the only calculator in this section!
