With mortgage rates so low, why not try to shave a couple of years off your mortgage. To help get you started, here are our Top 4 Tips:
- Review your loan annually – call your current mortgage provider to check you are receiving the best deal and/or shop around.
- Pay more than your minimum mortgage repayments.
- Review your household budget regularly. Is there a subscription that you no longer need or a cheaper energy supplier? Monitoring your spending over a few weeks each year helps you to see where you may be able to save. For example, instead of buying lunch each day at work, consider bringing your own. That could save you $75 each week or $3900 over the year!
- Think carefully before you buy ‘stuff’. It’s so easy to be lured by the latest gadget or new trend but before you purchase, take a moment to ask yourself if you really need it.
