8 Ways We Help Geelong Home Owners and Investors Get the Very Best Loan and Save Thousands in Interest, Fees and Tax

Choosing the right loan can help you save thousands of dollars to enjoy now and invest to build wealth for your future. However, the wrong loan can burden your family with unnecessary financial pressure and stunt your progress towards financial independence. Here’s some of the ways we help you get approved for the right loan:

1

Hundreds of Loans Compared

Our independent analysis compares hundreds of loans from 40+ lenders to help you save thousands in interest, fees and tax, and take years off your mortgage.

2

Structured to Save Tax Too

Our trusted network of professional advisors helps you structure your finances to legally save tax, giving you greater cash flow to improve your lifestyle, reduce debt, and invest for your future.

3

Ongoing Yearly Reviews

Yearly reviews and lender re-negotiations ensure you always have the best loan and never pay more than you need to (often without even changing loans). When a new loan is required, pre-filled paperwork makes switching quick and easy.

4

Fast, Efficient Processing

Our advanced software system maximises approval and simplifies the loan process, saving you hours of paperwork.

5

The Confidence of Genuine Loan Pre-Approval

While some lenders only offer approval estimates, our genuine Loan Pre-Approval gives you confidence to bid on properties knowing the money is there when you need it. Even if you think you’re still 12 months off buying, it’s never too early to have a Lending Strategy Session so you know your options. No cost or obligation.

Real Client Reviews From Geelong and Bellarine Peninsula Home Buyers and Investors

Over the past 22 years our team has helped more than 2183+ Geelong and Bellarine Peninsula home owners and property investors save years in repayments, fees and tax. Here’s what some say about their savings and experience with Aussiewide Financial Services.

Scott and the team have provided me with peace of mind and an exceptionally better deal than what I was on. The courteous, polite and professionalism afforded to me by all was exceptional.

The communication was clear and they were supportive at every step of the process. Their transparency always made me feel prioritised and valued. They went over and above to make this process as easy as possible for me.

Their responses to queries, even outside standard business hours, was exceptional. I have recommended both friends
and family.

- Fleur Olivia Alice

AWFS team helped us with our first home finance. Their support and guidance was on the point. Special thanks to Andrew and Sanda for pushing through my application with the bank within a week to meet my settlement. Great team, will reach out to them for my future investments.

- Samarth Patel

Thank you to Andrew at AWFS for helping us arrange finance to buy our first home. Andrew is communicative and professional, answering any queries we had and making things so much more understandable for us both. Highly recommend!

- Maisie Barlow

Fantastic service from Scott & his support staff. All questions answered, I’s dotted and T’s crossed. Nothing to too difficult for them and all concerns were addressed. Everything was a smooth process. For us being self employed it was probably the easiest refinance we have ever dealt with. So happy to have come across and been recommended AWFS.

Even after settlement, our broker kept in touch if we had any questions and will continue to keep in touch. Always on the lookout for better deals. Thanks again Scott & team. You definitely have a client for life 🙂

Frequently Asked Questions

Why should I see a Mortgage Broker rather than my bank?

When applying for a loan through a bank, you are limited to the small range of loans they offer. And the rates they set. Sure, you could try to compare their loans with other banks. But that would take hours making phone calls, filling in applications, negotiating rates, and analysing a confusing spreadsheet of data. It’s more complicated than comparing phone plans!

The team at Aussiewide Financial Services has a proven system to compare rates, fees and conditions from more than 40 lenders. We do all the research, administration and negotiation on your behalf – saving you many hours of tedious work and potentially confronting conversations. In short, we make it easy to get the very best loan.

How are you different to other Mortgage Brokers?

Any Mortgage Broker can find you a loan. But not all have the network, knowledge and experience to get you the best loan that saves you years of repayments and fees. Or the team to help you structure your finances to save tax.

The experts at Aussiewide not only guarantee to find you the best loan, we automatically review your loan each year to ensure you always have the best deal. And we offer advice on how you can redirect any savings to pay your loan off sooner or invest for greater returns in the future. In other words, we help you have more cash in your pocket today and tomorrow.

What type of loans do you specialise in?

We help clients with all types of home loans including first homes, upgrade, refinance, and investment properties.

How much can I really save?

Naturally, that depends on numerous factors including the loan you have now, the amount you borrow, and the current market conditions.

The average mortgage in the Geelong and Bellarine Peninsula region is around $450,000. And the average monthly mortgage payment is $2020 (at 3.5%).

We estimate that about 70% of home owners and investors are needlessly overpaying interest, fees and tax relating to their home and investment loans.

Over the past 22 years, we’ve interviewed thousands of mortgage holders. And we have (consistently) been able to save seven in ten people at least $330 per month in repayments.

That’s $3960 per year or $118,800 over the life of their loan!

How much can I borrow?

During your free Lending Strategy Session we will analyse your situation and give you an accurate idea of your borrowing capacity. We can even arrange full Loan Pre-Approval so when you find the right house, the money is ready.

Can’t I negotiate a better rate with banks on my own?

Some people are able to negotiate a better rate with their own bank. But many find this process stressful, time consuming and uncomfortable. And it doesn’t guarantee you have the best loan available in the market. (In other words, even with a better rate, you still may be paying more than necessary.)

We guarantee to get you the very best loan. And we look after all the research, negotiation, and administration, saving you hours of work and potentially confronting conversations.

How much are your fees?

Using a mortgage broker costs you absolutely nothing.

Banks do pay us a commission that they otherwise would have allocated towards marketing and advertising.

You will usually get a much better deal through us because unlike banks, we’re not limited to the loan products of any one lender.

Not only do you receive free, independent, expert lending advice, we offer additional property and financial guidance based on our 22 years of experience and our network of trusted advisors.

It’s a no-brainer if you ask us.

Isn’t your advice biased and based on commissions you receive?

Unlike some Mortgage Brokers that are restricted to a network of lenders as defined by their dealer group, Aussiewide is completely independent. This means we can compare hundreds of loans from more than 40 lenders to help you get the very best loan. And while commissions may vary (slightly) between lenders, we have a 22+ year track record of serving our clients’ best interests. Our goal is not to merely make sales – we are dedicated to forging lifelong relationships. And therefore, our advice is fully transparent, always impartial, and in your best interest.

What about exit penalties when swapping loans?

Exit penalties can often be negotiated and eliminated or reduced. In any case, our comprehensive analysis takes all penalties and fees into account to ensure you get the best financial outcome.

Are your tax strategies risky?

We do not believe in high-risk strategies that may be considered questionable in any way. We follow the rules and advise our client to do the same. And we work with a team of specialist financial experts who help our clients structure their finances for maximum savings and security.

What’s the difference between genuine Loan Pre-Approval and an approval estimate?

Sadly, some home buyers and investors sign a contract based on what they think is a Loan Pre-Approval only to discover it was only an approval estimate. This not only causes significant stress, it can put the contract at risk and lead to loss of deposit.

Aussiewide Pre-Approval is a genuine Loan Pre-Approval which means you can search for and bid on a house knowing the money is ready when you need it.

I’m just starting to think about buying a home, when’s the best time to see a Mortgage Broker?

The sooner the better. Because, we don’t merely help you get the best loan. We answer all your questions and help you through the entire process. So, whether you’re ready to make an offer on a property, you’re thinking about buying your first house, or you’re just wondering if you may be able to save some money on your mortgage, book at Free Strategy Session and benefit from our 22+ years of experience. There’s no obligation and absolutely nothing to lose.
