The Financial Products You Review

When your mobile phone contract expires you will review. Utility costs and suppliers will be reviewed when these contracts end. Credit cards will be switched to zero interest deals when existing deals end. You do this with all these products and services because it’s easy and saves you money.

When was the last time you reviewed your mortgage? And if your current mortgage deal has ended why haven’t you reviewed and looked at re-mortgaging?

Lets Look At Some Figures…

For a client who’s mortgage deal ended and they were now on the Lenders Standard Variable Rate of interest

◼Mortgage Outstanding £130,000 @ 3.99% SVR
◼Property Value £256,000 (50.78% LTV)
◼Term Remaining 20 Years
◼Monthly Repayment £787

◼Mortgage Outstanding £130,000 @ 1.19% Fixed 2 Years
◼Property Value £256,000 (50.78% LTV)
◼Term Remaining 20 Years
◼Monthly Repayment £608

✔Monthly Saving £178
✔2 Year Saving £4275

Through re-mortgaging onto a two year fixed rate mortgage the client would save £178 per month and £4275 across the two year fixed rate period. Another way of looking at the savings is to consider what you could do with the money! A great holiday or a couple of family meals each month at a nice restaurant. You could even consider reducing the term remaining on your mortgage if repayments are affordable.
