Extending the Term of Your Loan

Updated: Aug 4, 2021

Extending your loan term when you refinance introduces additional interest costs that may outweigh the savings you can benefit from in your new loan.



As Adam and Rachel’s example suggests; by extending the loan term by 5 years they will incur 5 years more of interest payments and increase the total amount of years they are paying interest, to 35 years.

If you are unable to negotiate the same loan term as your current one but would still like to refinance your home loan to a more competitive interest rate you can consider making higher repayments which will enable you to pay down your home loan in the same amount of years as your initial loan term or sooner.

Your mortgage broker can assist you to calculate the repayment amount needed to implement this strategy.
