Should I remortgage in New Zealand?

Remortgaging your home is a topic that comes up in conversation often.

Usually, we’ll get more calls about this as interest rates get lower, and / or house prices go up.  


The real answer to this question is BORING……

you need to talk to a Mortgage Broker / Mortgage Advisor about this, before you do anything – so get in touch with us HERE.


However – the purpose of this short article is to give you some information and websites, so you can learn a bit more about the idea of remortgaging, and generally saving money and time on your mortgage.


Here are some sites – resources:

MoneyHub: https://www.moneyhub.co.nz/remortgaging.html

Consumer NZ article:  https://www.consumer.org.nz/articles/mortgages-should-you-fix-or-float


Generally, you’ll need to have a conversation with your broker / advisor around the following topics:

  • Household budget
  • Current interest rates
  • Future interest rates
  • Home value
  • Current lifestyle and expenses
  • Time left on current mortgage
  • Exit fees / break fees
  • Legal fees


This may well make sense for you, or it might not.

There really is no better idea than to reach out, and talk to your Mortgage Broker / Advisor.
