We strive to provide tailored mortgage broking solutions through our team of experienced brokers, acting as intermediaries between you and a diverse network of over 30 major banks and lenders.

  • Variable Rate Home Loans: These loans offer flexibility with interest rates that adjust based on market conditions, providing potential cost savings over the long term.

  5. Approval and Settlement: After the lender reviews your application and conducts a property valuation, formal approval is granted. We’ll work with you and the lender to finalize the loan setup details, complete digital signing of offer documents, and schedule settlement in collaboration with your conveyancer or solicitor (if a purchase is involved).
  6. Settlement and Beyond: On settlement day, funds are electronically disbursed, making you an official homeowner or enjoying a refinanced home loan at a better rate!

What is home loan refinancing?

Refinancing your home loan involves comparing your existing home or investment loan with what is available in the wider market. If it makes financial sense, it is swapped out with a new mortgage agreement, typically with a new lender. This process allows you to take advantage of better interest rates, more favorable loan terms, or access equity in your property for various purposes. At OVM Finance, we understand that your financial situation and needs can change over time, and refinancing offers an opportunity to optimize your home loan. Here are some ways refinancing may benefit you:

  • Lower Interest Rates: If market conditions have shifted or your lending capacity and credit score are favorable, refinancing can lead to lower interest rates and more affordable monthly repayments. The monthly savings can be redirected towards your loan to expedite debt reduction plans or used for other financial priorities.
  • Accessing Equity: If your property has increased in value or you’ve made significant repayments, you may have built up equity. Refinancing allows you to access this equity, which can be used for home improvements, investments, debt consolidation, or other financial needs.
  • Consolidating Debts: Refinancing can be an effective way to consolidate higher-interest debts, such as credit cards, car loans, or personal loans, into your home loan. This may result in a single, more manageable repayment at a potentially lower interest rate, but caution is needed to avoid extending shorter-term debts over a longer home or investment loan term.
  • Changing Loan Features: Refinancing enables you to switch to a loan product with features that better suit your current circumstances. This could involve moving from a variable rate to a fixed rate, setting up an offset home loan, or making other adjustments that align with your financial goals.
  • Debt Repayment Strategies: Our mortgage brokers can collaborate with you to develop a personalized debt repayment strategy, which may involve refinancing strategically to optimize your financial outcomes.

Before proceeding with refinancing, it’s essential to consider potential costs, such as exit fees from your current lender, application fees, legal fees, and any short-term offers from a shortlisted lender. Our experienced team at OVM Finance conducts a comprehensive assessment of your financial situation using industry-leading tools, guiding you through the process and helping you determine if refinancing is the right choice. If you’re considering refinancing your home, consult with one of our experts to explore how it could benefit you!

Are mortgage brokers worth it?

Without a shadow of a doubt, having a mortgage broker in your corner is 100% worthwhile. What distinguishes our team at OVM Finance is our unwavering commitment to premium service, industry expertise, great deals, and ongoing support. With years of collective experience, our team not only secures mortgage approvals but also champions your long-term financial goals.

OVM Finance stands out as one of Melbourne’s premier mortgage brokers by treating you as a client, not just a transaction. Our approach to building relationships goes above and beyond the offerings of traditional banks.

Understanding that your financial needs evolve and life circumstances change, the OVM Finance team remains dedicated to providing continuous support. Whether it’s refinancing to take advantage of better rates, accessing equity for major life events, or navigating the complexities of investment property financing, we are here for you.

Does OVM Finance charge fees?

99% of the time our services are completely free of charge, as we are paid a fixed commission fee by the lender of your choice, this fee is fully disclosed to you. On the odd occasion for more complex scenarios we may charge a “engagement fee”, if this is the case this will be fully disclosed with you.

How are mortgage brokers paid?

We are paid through commissions paid by the lender your loan settles with. This will be a fixed amount dependant on your loan amount. This fee is fully disclosed to you. We are also paid “Trail commissions” – which are ongoing commissions paid over the life of the loan. These commissions are typically based on the outstanding loan balance and are paid at regular intervals, such as monthly or annually. Trail commissions are intended to compensate brokers for providing ongoing services, such as loan maintenance and customer support.

We are also subject to “clawbacks” – this occurs when a client closes off their loan in the first 2 years after the loan is created, whether that is through refinancing the loan or selling the property. A clawback is when we have to pay back the lender all commissions made since the loan was created.

Do you help property investors?

Whether you’re managing a portfolio of ten investment properties or exploring your first investment property loan, we possess the depth of knowledge and experience to navigate the complex landscape of investment property loans.

Arranging finance for an investment property often involves crucial tax considerations. Determining whether to purchase the property in your personal name, through a company or trust, or via your SMSF (Self-Managed Super Fund) can significantly impact your financial strategy. We collaborate with your accountant or financial planner to tailor a solution that aligns with your unique circumstances. Whether you require an interest-only investment loan in a company name for a self-employed applicant or have other specific needs, we can accommodate them and more. Contact us today for an obligation-free discussion.

Can you help first home buyers?

Purchasing your first home should be an exciting time, not a daunting one! That’s why we’ve crafted our first-home buyer finance process to be welcoming of questions and to guide you through each step. Our goal is for you to leave your initial meeting with confidence, understanding how much you can comfortably borrow and the process required for a successful outcome. For first-home buyers, there is no fee for meeting with us – so what do you have to lose? Skip the bank jargon and product complexities. Call one of our team members today to discuss your needs now.

Can I have my parents as guarantors?

Certainly, understanding the term “guarantor” is crucial, and the suitability of the structure must be clearly defined before proceeding further.

In the context of parental guarantees, it’s important to note that they typically take the form of equity guarantees rather than servicing guarantees.

  1. Equity Guarantees: Parents commonly provide support through equity guarantees by ‘pledging’ equity in a property, usually their owner-occupied home or an investment property they own. This means that the parents are offering the equity in their property as security for their children’s loan. In the event of a default, the lender may have recourse to the guarantor’s property to recover the outstanding amount.
  2. Servicing Guarantees: It’s worth mentioning that servicing guarantees, where parents promise to have enough income to boost the borrowing capacity of their children, are no longer widely available. This type of guarantee essentially involved a commitment from parents to ensure that their income could support the increased borrowing capacity of their children. However, this practice was largely phased out many years ago.

Before proceeding with a guarantor arrangement, it’s crucial to have a clear understanding of the type of guarantee being offered, the associated risks, and the legal implications. Consulting with a qualified financial advisor or mortgage broker can provide valuable insights and help navigate the complexities of guarantor structures. It’s important to stay informed about any changes in regulations or practices related to guarantor arrangements.
