Suncorp Store Manager Amber Nijenhuis explains refinancing your home loan, how to calculate your savings and what the process is to apply to refinance.
When it comes to refinancing, a lot of people don’t realise the exact dollar savings they could make each month.
I use the refinancing calculator to put your current rate side by side with the current Suncorp Bank home loan rate, and I can say straight away what the difference in repayments are likely to be if you refinance based on the figures you provide.
If the savings each month are big then that could be a great opportunity to pay your home loan off faster, or access equity, or consolidate debt, depending on your own financial situation.
To refinance, the next step is to fill out the application form with a lender like me, who will check all your documents and make sure everything is in order. Then submit the application.
If you refinance over to us with a Suncorp Back to Basics home loan and borrow $150,000 or more, Suncorp Bank will not charge an establishment fee or monthly account keeping fee - customers love that.
If you have at least 20% equity when you refinance, the other fees you may need to consider are fees to release the mortgage from your existing bank, and to re-register the title with the state revenues office. If you don’t have 20% equity, Lenders Mortgage Insurance applies.
Once the application goes through and gets approved we’ll go through the contract with you to make sure you understand the terms, the rate, and the monthly repayments.

Refinancing can save you lots in the long run, but exiting your current loan may cost you. If you have a fixed rate loan and you're within the fixed period, early termination penalties may apply. Other costs may include a loan establishment fee, mortgage registration fee, as well as any ongoing and exit fees.
The exact amount represented by these fees and penalties can vary depending on your arrangement with your lender, and the time left in your fixed rate loan period. Also, if you are borrowing more than 80% of the property value, you may be required to pay Lenders Mortgage Insurance. This isn't transferable across lenders.
Ensure the timing is right. If you have a fixed-rate loan, refinancing partway through the fixed period may be costly. Then compare and consider your options, while keeping your goals in mind. You should speak to a loan specialist if you need professional advice.
Establish goals. You may be after a lower rate, be dissatisfied with your current lender, or want to use your home’s equity to fund a renovation; if you know what you’re trying to achieve, it’ll be easier to choose the right loan.
You can compare our home loans to see which suits you best, and check out our repayments calculator to get an idea of how much your payments might be based on the amount you’d like to borrow.
You may want to consider refinancing your home loan if you're:
- Planning a renovation and want to borrow against the equity in your home
- Coming out of your fixed-term period and looking for another deal
- Dissatisfied with your current bank
- Looking to consolidate your debt

See what you could save
** Potential savings are calculated using the information you have provided. Please note that the savings displaying are indicative only and do not represent the Bank making an offer of credit. All calculations assume that the interest rate and loan term will remain unchanged and you will make principal and interest repayments for the remaining loan term. Each calendar year has the following periods – 12 months, 26 fortnights and 52 weeks. No fees or charges have been factored into the above interest saving calculation. Please refer to Lending Fees and Charges for all applicable fees. If you have supplied your current interest rate, then total interest over the life of the loan is calculated by applying your interest rate to the amount still owing on your loan over the remaining loan term. If you have supplied your minimum repayment amount, then total interest over the life of the loan is calculated by subtracting the amount still owing on your loan from the total of all payments made in the remaining loan term. Potential interest savings are calculated by comparing the information you have provided to the above variable or fixed interest rates.
