Fixed rates aren’t all that they are made out to be

Home owners and investors have enjoyed the highly competitive home loan market, with fantastic rates and promotional offers from a myriad of lenders.  

Although fixed rates are currently sitting well below the standard variable rates (SVR), scare tactics often blur the lines between true benefits and difficult predictions.  

It is important to consider all aspects of a fixed loan product, as they are generally far less flexible than their variable siblings.

For you, this could potentially cost you thousands in the loss of savings by smartly working with loan features, such as offset accounts and extra repayments, plus they can cost you hefty penalties and break costs due to their lack of flexibility.

Finance specialist, MoneyQuest is currently offering all TaxAssist Accountants clients a no-obligation free home loan review before considering locking in your interest rates.

Please contact your nearest TaxAssist Accountant today to take advantage of this offer.
