23 Nov Need Cash for Some Holiday Spending? Here’s Why Refinancing Might be the Answer
The holiday season is looming, so if you are struggling to find a budget for your Christmas shopping, you might want to consider refinancing.
According to ASIC (Australian Securities and Investments Commission), Aussies plan to spend $955 on average over the holiday season. The majority resort to their savings when it comes to paying for Christmas presents while others opt for credit cards, Christmas bonus, and loans.
We have discussed here before the reasons why you should refinance. Consumers are often advised to consider refinancing in order to obtain a better interest rate and payment term. Instead of throwing out the original mortgage and creating a new one, the current loan is initially paid off to give way to the second loan. However, in this context, you can opt to cash out the equity of your home loan. To know if you have enough equity, it’s advisable to consult with your local finance broker.
What is cash out?
To give you an idea, this is a term used by Australian lenders to describe when a borrower releases the equity from their home, commonly known as home equity loan. The loan amount is determined by the value of the property, and the value of the property is determined by an appraiser from the lending institution.
