Insider tips on how Australians can manage mortgage rate spikes

  1. Shop around for the best mortgage rates: Don’t just settle for the first mortgage rate you come across. Take the time to shop around and compare rates from different lenders. This can help you find a mortgage with a lower interest rate, which can save you thousands of dollars over the life of your loan.
  2. Consider refinancing: If you’re currently paying a high mortgage rate, consider refinancing to a lower rate. This can be a good option if you have a good credit score and can qualify for a lower rate. Just be sure to factor in any closing costs or fees when deciding if refinancing is the right choice for you.
  3. Make extra payments: If you can afford it, try making extra payments on your mortgage each month. This will help you pay off your loan faster and reduce the overall amount of interest you pay. You can also consider making biweekly payments instead of monthly payments, which can help you pay off your mortgage more quickly.
  4. Consider a fixed-rate mortgage: If you’re worried about mortgage rate spikes, consider a fixed-rate mortgage. With this type of mortgage, your rate will remain the same for the entire term of the loan, giving you peace of mind and a predictable monthly payment.

Remember, it’s important to carefully consider all of your options and choose the one that’s best for your financial situation. If you’re having trouble managing your mortgage payments or are worried about interest rate spikes, don’t hesitate to reach out to CreditReboot for help.
