Home Loan Re-financing?
We Help You Review The Best Rates!
Reviewing home loans can be an onerous process, which is why many ends up paying higher interest for longer periods than necessary as they put off the decision and efforts needed due to work and family commitments. We understand that. Let us help make this a breeze!
At MortgageWise, this is the exact value we bring to clients seeking to refinance their home loan. Now banks sometimes think that we may be taking business away from them. That may be true for other mortgage brokers out there, but for us we seek to work long term with clients and we ask them to stay put should the costs outweigh any interest savings from such a move.
Generally speaking there will be two sets of costs associated with remortgaging from Bank A to Bank B – legal fees and valuation fees. As you are changing the mortgagee bank which means a transfer of legal rights and charges and with new caveats lodged, you will need to appoint a law firm to do the transfer. And this law firm needs to represent you as well as both the incoming and outgoing mortgagee bank (in the discharge of the existing loan). Another set of cost will be valuation fees in order to ascertain the LTV (loan-to-value) ratio, CPF’s valuation limit, etc. based on current open market value of the mortgaged property. For private properties up to $2m the total legal and valuation fees involved could range from $2,500 to $3,000. Hence, at the very least, you will need to save more than this amount for any refinancing to make sense.
For example, to do a review on your existing UOB housing loan, you will need to compare what UOB offers you for re-pricing (changing the loan package only but not the mortgagee bank) with the best options out there, and do a cost-benefit analysis for each before you can arrive at the best decision. This is where you may find our MortgageWise Interest Simulator to be extremely useful as we do a sensitivity analysis based on a set of most likely interest rate scenarios over the next few years and see what is the potential interest savings across that few packages, including your repricing offer.

HOW TO REFINANCE THROUGH US?
FDR HOME LOANS
In recent years since 2014, the mortgage market has shifted from the traditional SIBOR-based housing loans to FDR-based housing loan. These are essentially housing loan packages pegged to the bank’s chosen tranche of fixed deposit rate, which is published daily on the respective banks’ website. FDR home loans gained popularity as they represent a “middle-ground” option between the highly-volatile SIBOR rates and the higher fixed rate home loans. We present in this chart the most up-to-date FDR home loan packages for refinancing (completed properties) by the month:
