QBANK's Home Loan Hub is your guide to refinancing your home loan. For the best deal and features that work, we've got a loan to suit you.
When it comes to refinancing there is a lot to get across. It’s a good idea to take time out to check you’re getting the best deal you can on your home loan. Before you commit, know the pros and cons so you can make the best decision for your financial situation.
The most common reasons for refinancing a home loan are to access a lower interest rate or loan features.
Refinancing doesn’t have to mean adding features on to your loan – it can be a chance to save money by getting rid of features you’re paying for but don’t need.
QBANK tip: Look for a bank with a human touch, where home loan decisions are made by real people. The best lenders stay in touch after you get your home loan, and check in to see if it’s still working for you. Be wary of lenders who get a commission for selling you a new loan.
