When interest rates show an increasing trend, why don’t you get your housing loan refinanced? What happens is that if your initial interest rate was higher than the current one in force, it is to your advantage to go for refinancing. In that way, a new loan replaces the previous one, which results in an overall decrease in the cost of interests. Now wouldn't that be a smart move!
Refinancing your existing loans confers several worthwhile advantages:
- Relief from high monthly repayments for the borrower(s) and ensuing improved budget comfort.
- Rescheduling of loan term and new calculation of monthly repayments for increased financial comfort, for a loan held with another institution.
- A refinancing loan can release funds for a new project such as home renovation or extension.
- A refinancing loan is ideal when you get an income increase resulting for example from an improved professional situation. If you can afford to top up your repayment amount, it is advisable to opt for a refinancing of your loan. This will bring you significant savings on cost of interests and the overall cost of your loan.
