Should I pick the loan that has the lowest rate?

We are unable to give advice or make any recommendations on what product to pick.

While the interest rate is important when selecting an affordable loan and keeping your mortgage costs to a minimum, there are other factors you may consider before refinancing your loan, such as:

  • whether you need an offset account
  • fixed vs variable rate
  • level of customer service from the lender
  • what all the fees are

A good way to assess this is to write down all the features you want in a home loan in order of priority. That way you have a checklist to go through when assessing each loan. Seek advice if you are unsure.
