The recent Corona virus Covit-19 epidemic worldwide is creating a worldwide financial strain on Governments, Businesses and Private Individuals. This has caused food price increases, shortages and generally very tough economic times in South Africa right now. We mean that you’re probably feeling very stretched.. Financially. On top of all of that your car suddenly won’t start. You lose your job unexpectedly. Your child needs urgent medical treatment. We don’t like to think about these things, but the reality is that life is unpredictable, and you won’t always have enough savings to cover these unexpected expenses. That’s where emergency funds such as a Personal Loan can come in handy: They give you access to cash quickly in times when you need it most. Personal Loans can help bridge the gap by providing financing in the short-term, which you can pay off in smaller amounts later.
Times are tough in South Africa and in some instances a Personal Loan is the most suitable answer. But no matter what your current situation, you should always have a backup financial plan in place to help you take control of your finances, whether this means getting out of your current cash strapped situation or building future wealth.
Your home is likely to be one of your biggest investments – so it’s important that you manage your home loan as effectively as possible, so it can be used as an effective tool to leverage your financial management. If you’re looking to save money on your home loan instalments and access the equity (value) that may have accumulated in your home’s value, Bondfin Assist can help you access the extra equity in the value of your home with a cash loan from one of the 5 main financial institutions in South Africa. A cash loan on your bond could provide you with substantial benefits. Your home is your greatest asset.
It’s simply, home/property refinancing and it is one of the most effective ways to release cash, reduce monthly expenditure and improve your financial position, it will only help if done correctly and for the right reasons. Now more than ever, people are looking for ways to save money, free up more disposable income each month and get their hand on much needed extra cash. One of the most effective ways to ease your budget is by raising the much needed cash against your property and consolidating all of your greatest monthly expenses and land up paying one account only at the end of every month: Your home loan instalment.
When facilitated by home refinancing experts and managed efficiently, home refinance can be the most intelligent financial decision undertaken by a homeowner. If your primary goal is to raise a cash loan against your property in order for you to manage your finances more efficiently, then refinancing your home is a viable and worthwhile option – particularly if you’ve owned your home for at least 3 years.
It is the nature for a fixed property to increase in value over time. This means that if you’ve owned your home for several years or you have done some home improvement on the property, the likely hood is that it’s worth more now than it was when you purchased it, there for it did increase in value. When Bondfin Assist helps you to refinance your home, you’re securing a new mortgage for your property based upon its current value, and not on the amount it was valued at when you took out your initial home loan.
This gives you access to equity/cash that you can use to improve your standard of living or strengthen your financial standing.
If you owe R 700 000 on your home loan, but your home is worth R 1 400 000, there is a R 700 000 difference in value. This is known as “equity” the cash value that you can get. Through home refinancing, you can apply to access this equity or cash value. Basically, equity is the cash difference, in value between what you owe on an asset, and the current value of that asset.
There for if you refinance your home for its current value, you could access the equity or cash value accumulated in your property. Essentially, it’s a line of credit being extended by the financial institutions, and thus you will pay interest on it. However, if you secure low interest rates, such as those offered by the 5 major banks in South Africa, they will offer valuable means of improving your financial position or paying for major or unavoidable expenses.
There are several reasons for refinancing a property. First and foremost, Refinancing your home at a lower rate could translate into savings of several hundred Rands – if not more – each month, and an overall saving of tens or hundreds of thousands of Rands over the life of the loan.
Another reason for home refinancing is equity release/cash release. Some homeowners require access to a significant sum of cash in order to settle debt, need cash flow in their business, or for a variety of other important or pressing reasons. When you refinance your home, you’ll gain access to this equity/cash at a competitive interest rate, which means that you’ll have the cash you need at an interest rate you can afford.
Lastly, individuals who find themselves in a tight spot financially often choose to refinance their homes in order to consolidate debt. Debt consolidation allows individuals to combine their debt into one lump sum and repay it at a more affordable interest rate than they’re currently paying.
Please note due to the relationship Bondfin Assist has got with the financial institutions the equity/cash value in your property will be paid out to you directly for you to use the funds wisely for whatever reason. If you decide you want to go to the banks directly you can, but all of the banks will not help you especially if you have got an existing bond on the property. Let’s say your bank will help you but as soon as the bank gets the application at head office they will ask you what do you want to use the extra funds for? If you say you want to use it for debt consolidation or in your business they will decline it immediately. They will only give you cash on the bond for home improvements in order for the value of the property to go up. They will then require quotations from contractors that are approved on their panel and for plans to be drawn up and approved by council. Now if that is all done then they will only pay out directly to the contractor as and when the work is done and not to you. Please do not panic, as we are here for you the client. As we have mentioned Bondfin Assist can get you the equity/cash value in your property and the funds will be paid out to you no questions asked, and you can do with the money as you please. We have to make sure and ask you to please use the funds wisely and not to make irresponsible decisions.
