November 25, 2016 in Insider Tips, Latest News, Rate Rises


The days of locking in a record low interest rate on your Home Loan may be behind us with several banks (including Westpac) confirming they will be increasing their Fixed Interest Rates by up to 0.50% p.a.

DPF Mortgage Specialists have confirmed that Westpac will be increasing their 2, 3 + 5 Year Fixed Interest Rates as at midnight this Sunday.

The biggest increase for Westpac will relate to the 5 Year Fixed Interest Rate which will rise from 3.89% p.a. to 4.39% p.a. (Premier Advantage Package Home Loan).

Based on a $400,000.00 loan you could save up to $10,000.00 over the 5 Year Fixed Rate term by contacting Westpac today (ph: 132558) rather than waiting until Monday.

If you are not with Westpac & are considering locking in your interest rate, you may need to act fast as “Other Banks” are likely to consider following the lead of Westpac, ING, Bank of Qld, Rams & ME Bank, who have already jumped to increase their fixed interest rates.

Please note that no changes have been announced at this time relating to Variable Interest Rates.

I hope this early “Heads Up” will help you to save your $$$$

How to ask your bank for a lower interest rate ?

August 31, 2016 in Insider Tips, Latest News, Rate Cuts


secret_box11We all know that Australian Banks are very keen to make huge profits, however, did you know that in many circumstances it is more profitable for a Bank to reduce the interest rates on a Home Loan to retain an existing customer rather than incurring the significant cost to replace a customer.


The amazing thing is … MOST CUSTOMERS DON’T ASK !!!


What do you need to do …

Step 1:    Know your current interest rate

Step 2:    Research what other Banks are offering (including offers to cover the costs of refinancing)

Step 3:    Call the phone number noted on your loan statement (i.e. NOT your Bank Manager) and advise the Bank you are considering leaving & quote the lower interest rates you can achieve with other Banks.

Step 4:    Ask the Bank if they will match this offer to retain your business.


PLEASE REMEMBER: If you have a Mortgage Broker please contact them first, as they are experienced with these negotiations & may have access to even lower interest rates not advertised publicly by the Banks. Your Mortgage Broker can use these lower interest rates to achieve even greater savings for you.
