With low fees and competitive interest rates across our suite of home loan products, it makes sense to switch to RACQ Bank and get more bang for your buck. When you’re looking at refinancing your home loan we know you want to choose a bank you can trust.

Step 1

Understanding the process

When it comes to refinancing, there are a number of things worth considering – to put yourself in the best financial position. Here’s a a list we’ve put together to give you some guidance, and to make sure everything goes smoothly.

  • Ask yourself why you’re refinancing – are you looking for better rates, lower fees or something else?
  • Compare loans – remember to look beyond the interest rates, and find out about any extra fees or charges that may apply.
  • Work out your borrowing power – even though you think you know how much you need, it’s always worth working out how much you’re likely to be lent (see step 2 below).
  • Apply for the loan – once you’ve worked out the best loan for you, apply usually by starting the application process online. Download the home loan application checklist and then talk to a lending specialist.
  • Sign the loan contract – and we'll take care of paying out the old loan for you.
