Frequently Asked Questions

Extra repayments will reduce the amount of money you owe on your loan and thereby reduce the amount of interest charged. That means you may be able to repay your loan off faster and you could potentially save significant amounts of cash over the life of the loan.

It can be a good strategy to pay a lump sum into your mortgage to reduce the principal amount owed and therefore the interest charged. However there are a number of factors to consider. You may have other debts attracting a higher interest rate which could be paid off. Your mortgage may or may not have redraw or an offset account attached so your lump sum will not be available for future use. This is a question best answered by a financial adviser who knows your personal situation.

There are plenty of ways to pay off your mortgage quicker including increasing the frequency of repayments, making extra repayments, refinancing to a cheaper loan, putting your savings into a mortgage offset account and more. Do a home loan health check yearly to ensure your loan still suits you and steer clear of interest-only loans if you want to pay off a mortgage quickly.
