Balanced mortgage information to support better decision-making
Kiwis prefer to do their mortgage research online.
The evolving mortgage market.
A recent study by KPMG of mortgage trends globally in 21-65 year olds has shown that 94% of participants in the UK and Australia want to research their mortgage online. It also reveals that 99% of Aussies, Canadians and British respondents see a competitive exchange rate as the single most important factor when evaluating a loan. And 33% of respondents say they were looking to renegotiate their mortgage or switch lenders within the next 12 months.
Kiwis are no different. And with bank branches closing across the country, this digital need is increasing.
mortgages.co.nz has been created to help all New Zealanders on their journey to finding a competitive home loan that fits their needs. When you’re armed with the correct information, you can evaluate the benefits of multiple lenders and quickly determine which loan will be best for you.
