Welcome to Mortgage Fastrack who has been helping people with finance solutions in the Wollongong and Illawarra area since it was established in 1999.

That’s why you should use a mortgage broker rather than go directly to a bank, because you are only limited to what the bank can offer.

Frequently Asked Question
What is Lenders’ Mortgage Insurance (LMI)?
This option can help you buy your home sooner, if you have a smaller deposit. It’s a one-off cost that’s added to your home loan (so you don’t have to pay anything upfront) and allows you to borrow more than 80% of the value of the property for standard home loans, or around 60% of the property value for Low Doc Home Loans.
What is the difference between a fixed rate loan and a variable loan?
Fixed rate home loans have interest rates and loan repayments that remain the same for an agreed period of time, and then at the end of the term, it reverts to a variable rate.
A variable rate home loan has an interest rate that can move up and down according to fluctuations in the housing market. A fixed rate is worth considering if you want the certainty of knowing what your repayments will be and therefore help you budget.
Can I switch between a fixed rate and a variable rate?
Yes. You can change from a fixed rate to a variable rate, or vice versa, at any time. If you switch from a fixed rate loan, you may pay an administration and early repayment cost.
If the loan runs to the end of a fixed rate period your loan will automatically move to the lender’s variable rate (at no cost), or you can switch to another fixed period loan.
What is a Comparison Rate?
A Comparison Rate reflects some of the costs of a loan that are factored into a single interest rate. The purpose of the Comparison Rate is to help you make a more informed decision on the costs associated with a loan, and help you to compare various loans and services offered by any financial institution or mortgage provider.
What is the difference between a ‘Principal and Interest’ Home Loan and an Interest-only Home Loan?
A principal and interest home loan is where the principal repayment and the interest are repaid together throughout the term of the loan. Whereas an ‘interest only’ loan allows you to pay only the interest on the loan for a certain period of time. The terms vary with lenders, if you live in your home, you can have an interest only period of up to 10 years, however if you have an investment home loan, you have up to 15 years to pay interest only, after that period you need to pay Principal and Interest for the remainder of the loan.
What is Loan to Valuation Ratio (LVR)?
The loan to valuation ratio is simply the loan amount divided by the value of your property. You are required to have lenders mortgage insurance if the LVR is more than 80% of the value of the property.
What is a Debt Consolidation Loan?
Debt consolidation allows you to combine all your loans into one. It can give you an option to reduce your interest rates and fees, thereby giving you a way to get yourself out of debt. If you choose to consolidate your debt, you’ll have one loan repayment to worry about rather than several.
