Remortgaging presents a valuable opportunity for homeowners to secure a new interest rate, find a lower interest rate, or release equity tied up in their property. As a mortgage broker committed to helping homeowners maximise their financial potential, we understand the importance of finding the best remortgage deals tailored to individual needs. In this blog post, we’ll delve into the ins and outs of remortgaging and unveil strategies for identifying the most favourable deals with the help of expert guidance. At Willow Brook Mortgages we have access to over 100 lenders to find you the best mortgage deal across the term of your mortgage.

Understanding Remortgaging: Remortgaging involves switching your existing mortgage to a new lender or a new product with your current lender. Whether you’re looking to lower your monthly payments, reduce your mortgage term, or release equity for home improvements or debt consolidation, remortgaging can offer significant financial benefits. With interest rates currently higher, a lot of people will find that their current interest rate is lower than what they can secure for a new mortgage. The lenders standard variable rate will be significantly higher than securing a new interest rate, so it is important to secure a new product to ensure you don’t go on to the lenders variable rate.

The Importance of Expert Guidance: Navigating the remortgage market can be complex, with a plethora of options and variables to consider. That’s where the expertise of a experienced mortgage broker becomes invaluable. By partnering with a knowledgeable broker like Willow Brook Mortgages, homeowners gain access to a wealth of resources, personalised advice, and exclusive deals that may not be readily available to the general public. We can look at the best overall deal, taking in to account the interest rate and any fees associated along the way. With access to 1000’s of mortgage products and exclusives that you cannot get by going direct to a bank or researching online.

Key Factors to Consider: When evaluating remortgage deals, several factors come into play:

  1. Interest Rates: Compare interest rates offered by different lenders to ensure you’re securing the most competitive deal. A slight difference in interest rates can translate into substantial savings over the life of your mortgage. Here we will consider the interest rate for the monthly payments and also how this will impact your mortgage balance at the end of the product. Lower interest rates will reduce the payments but also increase the amount of your monthly payment that is going off the mortgage balance.
  2. Fees and Charges: Take into account any arrangement fees, valuation fees, and early repayment charges associated with remortgaging. While a lower interest rate may seem enticing, hefty fees could offset potential savings. If you are remortgaging, we will also take in to account any solicitors costs associated with moving the mortgage across to a new lender.
  3. Loan-to-Value (LTV) Ratio: Your LTV ratio, which represents the percentage of your property’s value that is mortgaged, can impact the availability of remortgage deals and the interest rates offered. Aim to lower your LTV ratio to unlock access to more favourable deals.

 

Remortgaging presents an opportunity for homeowners to take control of their financial future and unlock savings that can be reinvested or used to achieve their goals. With expert guidance from a trusted mortgage broker, navigating the remortgage market becomes a seamless and rewarding experience. Whether you’re looking to lower your monthly payments, shorten your mortgage term, or release equity, there’s a remortgage deal out there tailored to your needs.
