“After speaking with you today, I called my bank to negotiate a better rate on my investment property loan, but after an hour on the phone, 3 different staff members, and a whole lot of hold music, turns out that they couldn’t match the rate that you (@Finance) had quoted me. It didn’t seem like my $250,000 loan was “big” enough for them to care about but you certainly cared about it!”
This is the second of two conversations we had with one of our clients Jennifer (name changed for privacy reasons) this morning, to ask if we could improve her situation with regards to her investment property loan.
In the end we put together a great new package with a reduced rate and by taking some time to refinance this is how much Jen will be saving:
- Rate offered by the current “major bank” 4.56%
- Comparable product rate options with other lenders 3.71%-3.89% (difference of at least 0.67%)
- On the $250,000 loan this is a saving of at least $1,675 per year / more than $50k in interest over the life of the loan
While you’re getting organised for your yearly accountants visit it’s a great time to get your paperwork together and organise a call or visit with us.
We don’t just want you to try to get as much money back from the tax man as you can, we want to stop the banks from “over” charging on interest.
