Refinancing a home loan case study
Type of loan: Refinancing
Deposit: Not required for refinance loan
Sarah was unhappy with her home loan as she had read about interest rates for mortgages falling but had not seen the benefit in her own pocket.
Sarah wasn’t sure where to start in order to see if there was a more suitable product for her needs and she didn’t want to call her bank direct as she didn’t want to be ‘sold to’.
Sarah contacted The Umbrella Company to find out if refinancing her home loan would benefit her in terms of reduced interest rate, lower repayments and a more suitable home loan better product. Sarah found that she was able to get both a reduction in interest rates and a better product.
When talking to one of The Umbrella Company, Sarah found that she was able to answer all of her questions and the broker recommended a few different products to suit her needs. Her current home loan product was a variable product and with the change in interest rates and uncertainty around the economy with an election and COVID looming, it was not working for Sarah.
Sarah found a specialist mortgage broker online and the independent expert at The Umbrella Company walked her through every step of the process around refinancing, and there was no fee for the service. The Umbrella Company recommended a new product and once Sarah confirmed she wanted to go ahead they handled all the paperwork and processing.
