Adding to this good news is many of Australia’s leading economists are predicting the record low rate of 1.50% may not increase for some time yet.
Why are banks charging higher interest rates on Home Loans & Investment Property Loans to their loyal clients whilst offering lower interest rates to new customers ?
Over the last 2 weeks alone our Mortgage Specialists have assisted 7 separate families who were not aware that the interest rates they were being charged on their Home Loans were 0.50% p.a. – 0.80% p.a. higher than the interest rates their banks were currently offering to new customers.
In dollar figures these higher interest rates cost each family an additional $1,200.00 to $5,600.00 per year.
Fortunately our Mortgage Specialists don’t work for the banks & the end results were great for all 7 of these families who, after working together with their Mortgage Specialist, are now thrilled to be keeping an additional $1,200.00 p.a. – $5,600.00 each year in their own pockets.
Please remember … Our Mortgage Specialists work for YOU … not the bank
Question: How much is your bank charging for your loyalty ???
Luke & Melissa were recently contacted by their Mortgage Specialist as the fixed interest rate on their Home Loan was due to expire. During their conversation Luke mentioned that the new interest rate being offered by their bank was 4.26% p.a.
DPF informed Luke & Melissa that 4.26% was not low enough as the same bank was offering even lower rates to new clients.
Our clients were happy for DPF to negotiate with the Bank on their behalf, and absolutely thrilled when their Mortgage Specialist informed them their Home Loan interest rate was reduced to 3.75% p.a. which saves them an additional $2,682.00 p.a. (i.e. $223.00 per month).
Not a bad result for a 5 minute chat.

The short answer is …YES !!!
Q: How can this happen ???
The first step taken by any Bank in the Pre-Approval process is to access your Credit File to obtain a copy of your previous credit history & your current credit score.
Every time a Bank accesses your credit file a “file access” (i.e. “fingerprint”) is recorded on your credit file which reduces your Credit Score.
If you have 3 or more “fingerprints” recorded on your credit file within 6 months of the date you are actually applying for finance, your credit score is likely to have reduced to a level below the minimum the Banks will accept resulting in your Application for Finance being declined by the Bank.
And please remember that the Bank who is assessing your actual Application for Finance will also create their own “fingerprint” which means that if you already have 3 prior “fingerprints” on your credit file, the new bank will be recorded as the 4th & therefore your Credit Score will be reduced even lower.
Please also be aware that it is not only the Banks who create these damaging “fingerprints” on your credit file. Your Credit Score will also be reduced when you do any of the following:
Q: How can I find out how much I can borrow without a leaving a “fingerprint” on my credit file ?
For over 20 Years DPF Mortgage Specialists have completed thorough assessments of borrowing capacity with an incredibly high level of success & accuracy without recording “fingerprints” on credit files.
Our Mortgage Specialists have access to the approval criteria & lending policies of over 40 Banks & our Mortgage Specialists can discuss your specific circumstances with the Banks’ Senior Credit Managers. These Senior Credit Managers actually possess the authority to “Approve” & “Decline” your loan application & therefore the level of accuracy we achieve is significantly higher than if we simply approached the lower level credit analysts & branch managers who do not hold this level of authority or experience.

Would you like to negotiate a lower interest rate on your Home Loan but are unsure how to do this ???
Vernesa & Igor were not aware that the interest rate their Bank was charging on their Home Loan was significantly higher than the rate their Bank was advertising to “New Customers”.
The higher rate was discovered by their Mortgage Specialist during a recent telephone conversation to discuss their potential change in lending requirements.
The “GREAT NEWS” for Vernesa & Igor is they will now be saving “THOUSANDS” more of their hard earned $$$ as not only has their Bank has agreed to reduce their interest rate, but also their Home Loan structure has been adapted to suit their new circumstances & lending requirements.

If you deposit all your savings into one or more Savings Accounts you will receive a nominal sum of interest from the Bank which is then taxed by the Australian Tax Office.
However … if you deposit your savings directly into your Home Loan or 100% Offset Account you will achieve a significantly higher return in interest savings which is NOT taxed by the ATO
Make your $$$ work smarter for you 🙂
(Important: Please contact your Mortgage Specialist or Bank to confirm you can make Additional Repayments to your Home Loan + Redraw prior to depositing any funds)
