Some common loan features and benefits:

Of course, not all these features will be available on every loan. We will work together to determine which features are best for you and find the loan that fits with your situation.

Interest Only Repayments: With an interest-only home loan, you only pay the interest on the borrowed amount for a certain period, usually around 5 years. This can make your initial repayments lower, but keep in mind that you'll still need to pay back the full amount later.

Extra Repayments: If you pay more than the required regular repayment, the extra amount may be deducted from the principal. This not only reduces the amount you owe but lowers the amount of interest you repay. Making extra repayments regularly, even small ones, is the best way to pay off your home loan quicker and save on interest charges.

Weekly or Fortnightly Repayments: Instead of a regular monthly repayment, you pay off your home loan weekly or fortnightly. This can suit people who are paid on a weekly or fortnightly basis and will save you money because you end up making more payments in a year, which potentially cuts the life of the loan.

Redraw facility: This typically allows you to access any extra repayments you have made. Knowing you have access to funds can provide peace of mind. Be aware lenders may charge a redraw fee and have a minimum redraw amount. There might also be other restrictions on when funds can be redrawn.

Repayment holiday: You may be able to take a complete break from repayments, or make reduced repayments, for an agreed period of time. This can be useful for travel, maternity leave, or a career change.

Offset account: This is a savings account linked to your home loan. Money paid into the savings account is deducted from the balance of your home loan before interest is calculated. The more money you save, the lower your regular home loan repayments. You can often access your savings in the usual way, by EFTPOS and ATMs. This is a great way to reduce your loan interest. Be aware the account may have higher monthly fees or require a minimum balance or have other restrictions.

Direct debit: Your lender automatically draws repayments from a chosen bank account. Apart from ensuring there is enough cash in the account, you don’t have to remember to make repayments.

All-in-one home loan: This combines a home loan with a cheque, savings, and credit card account. You can have your salary paid into it directly. By keeping cash in the account for as long as possible each month you can reduce the interest charges. Used with discipline, the all-in-one feature offers both flexibility and interest savings. Interest rates charged for these loans can be higher.

Professional package: Home loans over a certain value are offered at a discounted rate, combined with discounted fees on other banking services. These can be attractively priced, but if you don’t use the banking services you may be better off with a basic variable loan.

Portable loans: If you sell your current property and buy somewhere else you can take your home loan with you. This can save time and set-up fees, but you may incur other charges.

How much can I borrow?

Your borrowing capacity can vary with each Lender. All lenders have their individual serviceability calculators to assess how much you can borrow with them. At Total Loans we have access to most lenders calculators and can provide you with information on how much you can borrow with each lender. Some of the factors that lenders consider when assessing how much you can borrow include length of employment, deposit, guarantors, suitable security, previous repayment history, current debts ie personal loans, credit card/store cards.

Why don't I just go directly to my bank?

Mortgage brokers are often able to offer better rates by negotiating with multiple lenders, while banks only present their own offers. We provide a detailed comparison report so that you can compare the features, rates and fees of the products of various lenders, without going to each bank directly, saving you time and money. We also have access to promotions through the broker network, such as discounted, application fees and interest rates.

Can you help me if I have a poor credit file?

There are lenders who are willing to consider applicants with defaults or poor credit conduct. However, this greatly depends on the details listed on your credit file and the extent of your credit score. Before recommending a lender, it is advisable we check your credit report.

What does a Mortgage Broker Do?

A mortgage broker serves as a valuable intermediary between you, the borrower and the lenders. We have over 15 years in the finance industry and use our expertise and specialized software to secure competitive rates and facilitate a smooth mortgage settlement. At Total Loans, our mission is to safeguard your interests and expertly manage the entire mortgage process, so it is stress free and easy for you.

Do you charge any fees, or are there any hidden costs?

Not at all. Our service is free and transparent, with no hidden charges. When you receive a loan from us, it is the same as if you went directly to the lender. The lender pays us a commission, but it does not impact your home loan in any way.

Why do you need a Mortgage Broker to help you?

Did you know that over 70% of loans in Australia are submitted through a Mortgage Broker? Navigating the countless mortgage products on the market can be confusing and overwhelming. A Mortgage Broker plays a pivotal role in guiding borrowers through the maze of options, explaining product features, and aiding in selecting the ideal loan for you.
