      Hi Georgie,

      Thank you for getting in touch with Finder.

      Please note that the amount of equity you have in your home can determine your refinancing options. If you consider refinancing your home loan with Pepper Money, kindly click on the green Enquire Now button then enter all details asked and an expert will get in touch to discuss your options. I also suggest that you seek help from a mortgage broker to discuss your other refinance home loan options.

      I hope this helps.

      Thank you and have a wonderful day!
