getting finance

From: Bruce Graham

G'day Anonymous,
I've had a phone call today from a new
company in Milsons Point, Sydney.
This company was put on to me by my accountant.
This company is chasing new business.So if
you feel like giving them a call please do so.
Company name MortgagePort
Phone no. 0411 888 284
ask for Lindsay
There interest rate is 5.84% variable.
This is not a honeymoon rate,and no monthly
MortgagePort is a group of accountants who
formed this company.
So when you talk with them, you're talking
to an accountant.
I have every intention of doing business with
them if everything checks out.
Best of luck.
Bruce G.(Sydney)

G'day again,
Sorry I forgot to mention there's a start up fee of six hundred and sixty dollars.
Which isn't too bad when you compare the
interest rate of 5.84%.

getting finance - a caution

A thought for you to consider (which you may have already) is that there is more to a finance package than simply the interest rate. It mention this because you emphasise the rate factor in both your posts.

I'm not familiar with MortgagePort, so I won't comment there, save to say that I'm not sure that their being accountants is necessarily in their favour - indeed in my more jaundiced moments I'd class it as a disadvantage.

Elements to consider with financing include: do your needs today differ from your needs tomorrow?, will the loan structure accommodate unforseen changes?, are multiple properties being cross-collateralised un-necessarily?, what does it cost you to escape/restructure?

I could go on for ever with the different permutations possible in the finance game (and it is a game, where it's of vital importance to know the rules!).

Enough from me! I hope they prove to be as good for you as you anticipate they will be.

Tell us a bit more about "Nutshell Investments". (apart from the fact it's a reg bus name). What do you do?
