Switching home loans may seem like an enormous task. But here’s why it pays to give it a go.

I still remember the day I got my first home loan.

I was so excited. All those years of working and saving and I was a home owner. There’s never been a bigger thrill. I was a little worried about taking on such a huge debt but it was a “good debt,” an investment for the future.

I took a deep breath, picked up my keys and set about decorating my new place until the walls were painted the exact shade I wanted them to be, the rugs were the perfect size for each room and the furniture was in the best arrangement possible to make use of the space. I spent A LOT of time in “Home Maker” centres.

Of course the thrill fades once it’s all done and you just move on with life. We get used to making our mortgage payments and settle in for the long haul. Most of us don’t think about our home loans beyond making the required payments, not realising that if we put some thought into it we could potentially save thousands of dollars.

We constantly rethink other bills like health insurance, phone bills and energy bills, so why not our home loans? It’s our biggest expense so we should make sure it’s the right deal for us. Choice Home Loan provides a Home Loan Health Check to make sure your home loan is the right one for you, right now.

There are so many great deals out there for you that and the brokers at Choice give you some great options.

Before you think about making a move here are some things worth considering about your current Home Loan:

How long will it take for you to pay off your loan?

How much interest will you end up paying?

Can you manage the repayments comfortably?

How often do you have to make a payment?
