Switch and Save

Avant Money estimate that over €25bn of mortgages are on an interest rate higher than they need to pay.

With the cost of living at an all time high, could a 5 minute discussion with a broker save you money in the months and years ahead. It could be the best 5 minute chat you have ever had!

Switching your Mortgage from one provider to another is simple, your Broker will do the research for you and let you know if you will SAVE money.

Some lenders are offering a cashback incentive to help cover the costs with switching, this is a great benefit and something people should look out for. It’s not always right for everyone but certainly worth speaking about.

If you are looking for a financial health check, please drop me an email today or pick up the phone for a no obligation chat –  james.curd(at)mortgagebrokers.ie or 01 633 9248.
