What type of loan is right for you?
With Winsec Savings & Loans
IF you are looking for finance, the array of mortgages available helps a good finance broker to tailor a package to suit your needs.
Here are just some of the options: Fixed-rate mortgages - with a fixedrate loan, you know exactly how much you’ll pay per fortnight or month for the fixed period of the loan (usually one to five years).
Variable rate mortgages - repayments can change during the life of a variable-rate loan, so you may pay more or less as interest rates rise or fall.
If you’re fairly sure that rates are set to fall, this a good option.
Principal and interest mortgages in this mortgage, you are paying the amount lent to you plus the interest.
Interest-only mortgages - with interest-only, you are paying just the interest on the loan - you are not paying off any of the original principal.
Split home loan (fixed and variable) - you can choose to have part of your loan at a fixed rate and the other part can be at a variable interest rate.
If rates do fall, the interest will go down on the variable part of your loan, but you aren’t taking as big of a risk should rates rise.
Redraw facility - if you have a variable-rate loan and you make extra repayments, then you can withdraw that additional money when you need to (you can’t do this on fixed-rate loans).
Land loan - a land loan lets you buy a block of land without the pressure to build on it as soon as possible.
Land loans are usually variable interest for up to 30 years.
Construction loan - for buying land, building or renovating your home, a 12 month construction loan can be the best way to go.
Usually, up to 90 per cent of the property value can be borrowed.
Self-employed - for self-employed people, a home loan can still be arranged using differing supporting documentation that shows your ability to service a loan and might include BAS and bank statements.
You self-certify your income, which will need verification.
You may be able to borrow up to 90 per cent of the property’s value.
Equity Release (Reverse Mortgage) - this loan type allows you to convert a portion of your residential property “asset” into cash or an income stream while still allowing you to continue to live in your home.
