Five reasons to think about refinancing your home loan

Refinancing is getting a lot of attention right now, as speculation builds about the Reserve Bank increasing the cash rate in 2023 or even 2022.

Australian Bureau of Statistics data shows that refinancing activity is at near-record levels.
In recent weeks, a host of lenders, including all of the big four banks, have increased their fixed rates, which might be causing some more borrowers to consider refinancing.
Also, some people might be thinking about refinancing to take advantage of equity they've built up in their home during the ongoing property boom.

So if you’re thinking about refinancing, you’re not alone. That said, you should refinance when it makes sense for your personal situation, not because other people are doing so or because the media is speculating about interest rate movements.

Depending on your scenario, refinancing might allow you to:

  • Reduce your interest rate
  • Switch your interest rate type (i.e. variable to fixed)
  • Pull out equity to fund the deposit on an investment property
  • Consolidate several higher-rate debts into a new lower-rate home loan
  • Get a loan with better features
