Refinancing your home means replacing an existing home loan with a new mortgage.
If you are finding your current home loan isn't suitable for a number of reasons, from fixed term loan is ending to wanting to reduce your home loan repayments, you can refinance and acquire a home loan suitable for your situation.
Your circumstances have changes and your existing loan may not be suitable anymore.
Advantages of refinancing my home loan
Stop and think about how much has changed in your life, and in the world around you, since you bought your home. Does your home loan reflect your current circumstances?
Small differences add up:
Refinancing to a home loan with an interest rate that is a quarter of a percent lower might not seem like big deal, but 0.25% can mean a big reduction in your interest repayments over the life of the loan.

Having your home loan and bank account with the same financial institution could save you money every month with fee waivers and discounts on products and services.
Consolidating your loans could make them easier to manage and pay off.
