Are you considering fixing your loan?

The decision last week by the Reserve Bank to leave official interest rates on hold yet again would have as no great surprise to anyone. However, it seems that as each month passes, more home owners (and those who want to become one) are turning their attention to the question, “Is now the right time to lock in a fixed rate home loan?”

Fixed rate enquiries increasing

Here at Dreamstreet Lending, our Advisors have noticed an increase in the quantity of…

Three key questions to ask about your home loan

In a world where people tend to customise so many aspects of their lives, it’s amazing how many home owners make the mistake of assuming that they have to take the first home loan they are offered. If only they’d taken the time to ask a few simple questions, they could have started with a loan that not only saved them money in interest, but which could have also given them features that were of real benefit over time…

A little credit planning can make a big difference

Here’s a tip for anyone who is planning on getting a home loan later this year, (whether it’s for your own home, or you are keen to join the many Australians who are investing in property).

What many loan applicants don’t realise is that even a minor default on a phone bill or a late electricity payment has the potential to affect your ability to obtain finance. This is why it’s not a bad idea to check your own credit…

Dealing with credit limit increases

Most readers may not have heard of the National Credit Act, but this set of laws came into effect in 2010 and was designed to provide an update to the rules that apply to credit cards, loans and reverse mortgages.

One of the changes that many people are unaware of is the rules regarding credit card issuers offering invitations to increase your credit limit. For example, did you know that the credit card companies are NOT allowed to send you…

Finding the right path to financial peace of mind

For many people who find themselves under financial pressure, one of the most frustrating issues they have to deal with is that every Bank they talk to seems to take the same approach in their dealings. As our clients often tell us, that approach usually seems to be a highly inflexible and uncooperative one indeed!

However, what many people don’t realise is that there are ways to avoid this frustration, and a lot of it has to do with knowing…

Too many Aussies are missing cheaper rates

We all know that official interest rates are currently at historic lows. Yet according to a survey conducted last year by one of the interest rate comparison websites, close to 40% of Australia’s home owners still have NOT taken advantage of the current interest rate climate by shopping around for a better deal!
Believe it or not, the survey found that 39% of home owners have not switched loan providers in the past decade…which means that more than 1 million…

How to handle a maxed-out credit card

It’s not surprising that this time of year is one of the most common times for people to run into problems with a maxed-out credit card.

What’s better than a $5,000 bonus?

If there’s one thing better than having a chance to win $5,000 from your Home Loan broker…it’s having TWO chances to win $5,000 from your Home Loan broker! That’s why these two guys are smiling so much as they collected their $5,000 cheques from Dreamstreet last week.
