                Choosing a Mortgage

                Before you decide which lender to choose, here are some questions you can ask to help you assess different home loans:

                Do they have low interest rates?

                While there are other important factors, low interest rates are usually the most important thing when choosing a home loan. A lower interest rate can potentially save you thousands in the long run, but be sure to check the comparison rates to get a clear idea of all the costs involved.

                What other home loan fees are included?

                When you take out a home loan there are other home loan fees that lenders might charge you such as:

                • establishment fees

                • application fees

                • conveyancing fees

                • legal fees

                • Lenders Mortgage Insurance (LMI)

                • stamp duty costs

                • other ongoing costs

                It might also be helpful to consider these other home loan fees when choosing a lender.

                Is the home loan interest-only?

                Interest-only home loans are type of mortgages where the borrower is required to pay only the interest of the loan for a certain period. This can be cheaper for the first years of the loan but will revert to higher repayments after the 'interest-only' period expires.
