Worried about rising interest rates?

Written by Saurabh Gupta on January 6th, 2017.      0 comments

Rise in New Zealand mortgage interest rates imageOff late media is abuzz with the news that interest rates will increase in the coming period.

The US Federal Reserve,  raised its benchmark interest rate by 0.25% in December 2016 – and has signaled more increases in 2017.

It made it costlier for NZ banks to borrow for the longer term from offshore funds. Hence, experts are expecting home loan interest rates in NZ to rise as well. Leading NZ banks raised the 2 year fixed rate by approximately 0.20% in the last two months.

Take charge of your mortgage (and save interest on it)

Written by David Chaston on June 24th, 2016.      0 comments

Save Interest on Your MortgageSometimes the best home loan choice is not what you might expect. You may seek out a good broker because you want the ‘best interest rate’ on your loan. But surprisingly, the ‘best’ may not be the ‘lowest’.

The key is to shift your focus; it is not the interest rate you pay that you may want to concentrate on, but the rate (speed) you pay your loan off.

The faster you pay your mortgage down, the lower the interest you will pay.

What you need is a plan customised to your needs and financial situation and the follow up support to stay on the plan. Global Financial Services Ltd (GFS) are providing such consulting services over the last 17 years and are capable of providing you a tailor made written plan as well. 

As a result, you could pay off your loan years earlier saving tens of thousands in unnecessary interest.

Council votes against Unitary Plan! Will SHAs come to the rescue?

Written by Saurabh Gupta on February 26th, 2016.      0 comments

Auckland Mortgage Broker on Auckland Unitary Plan changesThis week Auckland Council voted to reject the Unitary Plan's housing density proposals known as the “out of scope” changes. They largely refer to zoning changes which would have allowed terraced or multi-tier housing. A Government appointed independent hearings panel will now determine what the zoning will look like and give recommendations to the Council in July.

The good news is that in another development, 14 new Special Housing Areas (SHA) were announced on 11th February. They will provide more than 4500 new homes across Auckland. The total number of SHAs in Auckland is now 120, with more than 52,000 new homes.

First home buyers may want to be prepared as these new homes come into the market and save for their deposit. While those looking for investment properties may want to tread carefully and build up equity for the right opportunity. Over the last 3-4 months we have seen that First Home Buyers have come back in the market to buy their property.
