interest rate

There is this funny psychology that makes us feel fantastic when we get a win. An unexpected interest rate drop, a winning horse in the office sweepstakes or even an extra M&M out of the vending machine. We must get a rush of some chemical to the head that makes us feel like Bill Gates all of a sudden.

What does an interest rate drop really mean to your monthly budget?

Precious little, I’m afraid, especially if you are a NAB customer. If you have a mortgage of $300,000 you will only have an extra $50 bucks. You will need more interest rate drops to really make a meaningful difference!

Loan Amount Monthly Saving
























Honestly, the best advice I can give you is to put the Champagne back into the cupboard and leave the $50 in the loan as an extra repayment.

Are you sitting down? No really! You need to be sitting down for this! The extra $50 a month on your $300,000 mortgage over 30 years  will save you up to 2 years, 3 months from your loan and $35,000. That’s right 35 thousand big ones!
