Business Profile: Home Loans Newcastle

Home Loans Newcastle works with property owners to leverage their equity to increase wealth, and with first home buyers to ensure they have the right loan in place. We regularly help clients save thousands of $ every year on their current loan interest.

We helped Kathy save Kathy close to $2k in interest every year be refinancing her investment property from a big 4 bank to a non-major bank.

We helped Tim and Amy save $ on their existing loan and obtained extra finance from their mortgage so they could update their kitchen and bathroom – the repayments on their new (higher) loan are less than they were on their existing loan due to the lower interest rate.

We helped Geoff and Narelle save over $22k in mortgage insurance by using his parents’ property as extra security for their loan.

We have and can assist clients in Brisbane, Gold Coast, Newcastle, Dubbo, Sydney, Canberra, Albury, Melbourne, Ballarat and Hobart – and “share the love” by paying a referral fee for any settled loans that you refer.

If your clients have a mortgage and are paying 4% or more, we can often help them get a better deal, save them $, and on settlement give them $ to spend with you!
