    Hi,

    I am dealing with a broker who has suggested a few lenders. It’s the first for me. Inexperienced as such. Is it true that brokers commission from the customer in a way that the bank such as ANZ would increase rates or fees to pay the broker? Just curious. Also, with the simplicity plus home loan at 4.03%, is it true you can withdrawal on available credit slightly different to that of an offset account? If details can be provided that Would be fantastic!

      Hi Jordan,

      Thank you for your question and for contacting finder.com.au we are a financial comparison website and general information service we are not mortgage specialists so can only offer general advice.

      Basically, mortgage brokers receive a commission or fee from lenders. Their fees would vary depending on the volume of transactions they have. Their commission is not related to when a bank/lender would increase their rates and fees so they can pay the broker. On this page, you can find more information how mortgage brokers are paid.

      As for the ANZ Simplicity PLUS Home Loan, it has a fee-free redraw facility, which allows you to withdraw any extra payments you’ve made on your home loan. If you like to know more how a redraw facility works on home loans, please check this page.

      Cheers,

    simplicity plus – discounted rate at 4.03% is not introductory rate, is it? just bcos it says special discount, so i was wondering if it was introductory.

      AnndyMay 1, 2017Staff

      Hi Annah,

      Thanks for your question.

      The terms and conditions of the discounted rate of 4.03% did not mention that it is an introductory offer. The rate applies to applications received on or after Friday 22nd July 2016 and this offer may be withdrawn or changed at any time. The applicable interest rate may be amended or varied at any time.

      Cheers,
      Anndy

    I currently have an ANZ Simplicity Plus home loan. I now notice this does not have an offset account. If I were to change to another home loan at another bank with a better home loan package, what fees or costs would be associated with moving my existing loan to another bank?

    • Staff
      MarcMay 3, 2016Staff

      Hi Miriam,
      thanks for the question.

      This loan has a discharge fee of $160 which would apply if moving your loan from one bank to another. For other fees and charges it’s a good idea to contact ANZ and get a quote of the fees you’ll have to pay when exiting.

      I hope this helps,
      Marc.

      Hi Polly,

      Thank you for contacting finder.com.au. a financial comparison website.

      ANZ fees for paying off your loan early during the fixed rate period, as this is a variable rate loan there may not be any fees associated with paying the loan off early but I would speak to ANZ directly to discuss your specific needs and how they can assist you with this.

      Regards
      Jodie

    i am a First Home buyer. I am looking to buy a block of land and then construct the house. Which loan will be suitable for me? Can I borrow 90% ? Whats’s the difference between Interest Rate & Comparison rate?

    • Staff
      MarcJuly 22, 2014Staff

      Hi Salman,
      thanks for the question.

      The loan which is suitable for you will depend on your individual circumstances, so it’s difficult for me to recommend one loan. Construction home loans are available for those looking to build a home, and these can save you interest charges as they allow you to only withdraw the money your builder requires rather than the whole loan amount.

      The interest rate is the amount of interest you’ll be charged for borrowing funds from a particular lender. The comparison rate is a version of this interest rate which takes into account certain fees charged as part of that specific home loan. Check out our guide for more information.

      If all this is overwhelming and you’d like professional advice, you can speak to a mortgage broker and find out more about what options could be available to you.

      Cheers,
      Marc.

    Will I have to pay exit fees on my mortgage of approximately $150,000

    • Staff
      MarcFebruary 25, 2014Staff

      Hi Jane,
      thanks for the question!

      This depends on when you opened it. Exit fees are banned for new loans entered into after 1 July 2011, but there are still break costs available for fixed rate loans. A good way of finding out exactly how much you’d pay to leave your home loan is to call your provider up and get a quote.

      I hope this helps,
      Marc.

    Hi,

    We, my friends and I(3ppl) are gonna buy a land together, then planing to demolish the exist old house and subdivide in 3 lots. After built a new 3 houses for each!!!

    My question is that knock down and subdivision costs before start to built a new house, are into construction loan?
    Or construction loan is only payable for only construction costs for new house on empty lot to be ready to built?

    If Knock down and subdivision costs are not into a loan, do we have to pay by our own cash or any other option from lender?

    Thanks

    • Staff
      MarcSeptember 24, 2013Staff

      Hello Hannah,
      that sounds exciting!

      This will depend on the construction loan provider, but many will provide the funds to begin from the knockdown phase. A construction loan works by allowing you to withdraw set amounts of money at different required times. This means you can get access to funds for the knockdown, and then not have to withdraw any more money from your loan until the builder requires his/her first payment e.g after pouring the slab.

      You may want to consider comparing a range of construction loans and enquiring about how each of them work.

      I hope this helps,
      Marc.
