Fixed rate mortgages are a great way to combat rising interest rates. After the first few years of your fixed loan, it will become a standard variable loan that follows the market rate.

Many borrowers choose to apply the fixed rate to only a part of their loan, so that if rates unexpectedly drop, they can take advantage of the lower interest on at least some of their loan.

Avoid the guessing game and get professional advice on future interest rates. Simply because rates have been cut to a historical low doesn’t mean that they will remain like this for years.

Fixing your rate at just the right time can save you thousands.

Before selecting any financial product you should read the fine print carefully, including the product disclosure statement, fact sheet or terms and conditions document and obtain professional financial advice on whether a product is right for you and your finances.
