With the RBA rate sitting at 3%* it’s also a great time to look at a fixed rate loan, this can provide certainty and stability in the short term. Lenders are continually bringing out new products to the marketplace and you should ensure that your current loan continues meets your future goals and objectives.
Many people do not regularly review their home loan and this can cost thousands of dollars over the life of their loan.

Speak to your financial adviser or mortgage broker for more information.
