Believe it or not, many banks keep their best deals for new customers, because they assume you will be too busy to switch, or you won’t look around and think that most mortgage deals are all the same.
This means you can potentially save a lot of money by having your whole-of-market broker check the market and make sure you are always betting the best deal.
Here is a recent case we have completed
Mrs B has an outstanding mortgage with Bank X;
Her fixed rate deal is coming to an end, and she would like another 2-year fixed rate product to carry on with.
These were her options;
Current Bank’s new deal; Monthly payment £539 no fees
Greendoor Mortgage’s new Deal; Monthly payment £499 no fees
This saves Mrs B £40 per month, or £960 over the 2 years of the deal, which she is delighted with.
Imagine how much saving you could make when you look at the mortgage over 25 years!
As an alternative, Mrs B could have used the saving to shorten the term of her mortgage and potentially retire earlier than she could have.
