Loan products have evolved significantly since the deregulation of the banking industry in the 1980s. This creates opportunity if you know where to find it. Your Mortgage and Money Management Strategy has a long-term and lasting impact on property, financial and opportunity costs.

  5. Optimise the use of offset accounts

If you get it wrong, the opportunity cost will increase dramatically.

We like to think differently and challenge the norm
There are many ways to manage your risk within your mortgage and banking structure

This is logical given:

  • Your mortgage is your largest financial commitment
  • Your banking set up is where all of your income and expenditure is managed

Yet the focus is often on the interest rate – the simplest aspect to comprehend.

Peace of mind – does your Mortgage Strategy pass the pillow test?

An effective banking and Mortgage Strategy can create enormous peace of mind, empowering you to take control of your Money and Risk Management.

What is the point of growing your wealth and improving your lifestyle if you cannot sleep at night?

Lenders and mortgage brokers do not understand Mortgage Strategy

They sell products and the interest rate. This is to your detriment. No one focuses on Risk Management as part of the mortgage conversation.

It makes sense to seek specialist
advice for accumulating
your largest financial asset.

Interest rates, the elephant in the room

Your Mortgage Strategy is vital to property success

Is securing a low interest rate your number one priority?

If you want the lowest interest rate you need to refinance weekly, as the best rate is always changing. Most lenders have almost identical products and similar rates. We will obtain a great rate, actively manage your Mortgage Strategy, assist with Property Planning and provide exceptional customer service.

Always searching for the lowest rate is as futile as thinking the grass is greener on the other side of the fence because your rate won’t be the lowest in a week or two!

Did you know comparison sites, mortgage brokers and lenders all access the same rates?

Interest rate competitiveness fluctuates between lenders and products month to month. Selecting a specialist should be based on their ability to provide an intelligent Mortgage Strategy, supported by ‘award winning’ customer service.

A poor Mortgage Strategy will cost you more than a poor interest rate. 

We are focused on proactively ensuring your loan remains competitive into the future

It is not just about the rate today, but what the rate will be in the future.

Has your lender or mortgage broker ever initiated an improved interest rate for you with the same lender?

After visiting several banks to discuss my options for building my first home I was left confused, anxious and disappointed. A work colleague then referred me to Property Planning Australia and they were fantastic! I filled in a couple of forms and they did all the hard work for me; and they explained everything in plain English. They also regularly negotiate a lower home loan interest rate for me which is great. I highly recommend Property Planning Australia.

Frequently Asked Questions
What is a Mortgage Broker?

Someone who saves you time researching mortgage products. They should have access to at least twenty different lenders.

Only a Strategic Mortgage Broker will help you to develop a Mortgage Strategy.

Why use a Mortgage Broker?
  • Mortgage Brokers have access to exactly the same interest rates, products and fees as a lender direct and the website comparison sites.
  • Mortgage Brokers have a legal duty to act in your best interests, lenders do not!
  • Mortgage Brokers are held to a higher level of regulation and compliance by ASIC than employees of lenders and they must provide you with a Credit Proposal.
  • Once upon a time, there was little choice beyond the major banks. Using a mortgage broker is a vote for choice remaining, and not being taken away.
  • A great Mortgage Broker saves you significant time and leg work. They inform and educate you and provide excellent customer service.
  • A great Mortgage Broker provides ongoing support and advice.

We overlay this with in depth Mortgage Strategy and Property Planning all supported by our ‘award winning’ Private Banking service.

How do lenders derive an income from Mortgage Brokers?

Exactly the same way they do when you take out a loan direct – the earnings from your interest rate, savings and fees.With loans originated by a mortgage broker, lenders earn this income without paying for marketing, employee salaries and business overheads.

No wonder most lenders, with the exception of the majors, do not have a branch network and ONLY use mortgage brokers – imagine the savings!

How does a Mortgage Broker get paid?

A Mortgage Broker receives a fee from the lender your loan is placed with. A Mortgage Broker can access the same rates and products as when you deal with the lender direct. Half of all mortgages in Australia are originated by Mortgage Brokers.

A Strategic Mortgage Broker does a whole lot more than just find a lender, product and a rate!
