Five things to consider then reviewing your home loan
When you’re considering a home loan check-up, it’s important to have a goal in mind. What is your current financial situation? What do you want from a home loan? And what are your financial goals?
Considering the following questions will help you make the most of your check-up:
- Have my financial circumstances changed since I took out the loan?
- Am I paying an unreasonably high interest rate or high fees?
- Am I happy with the service my lender provides?
- Does my loan have the features I need?
- Does my loan have features I don’t use that are costing me?
