There are different ways of achieving lower monthly repayments. You can switch to another loan type, such as from a fixed-rate loan to a floating-rate one. Alternatively, you can consider extending the tenor of your loan. However, bear in mind that while your monthly repayment would go down if you were to extend your loan tenor, you will end up paying more in interest expenses over the duration of the loan.

 

When you reduce the interest rates on your existing loan, you also reduce the interest component and increase the principal component of your monthly instalments. Thus, you will pay down your loan principal over a shorter tenor.

On the same note, if you would like to shorten your repayment schedule by reducing your loan tenor and can afford the increase in monthly instalments you could save a significant amount of money by reducing the interest that you will pay over the full duration of the loan. Although this may mean higher monthly repayments, you will own your home faster and be free of mortgage debt sooner.

 

With property appreciation, your residential or commercial property is likely to be worth more now than when you first took up your original loan. Tap into the appreciated value of your property to do great things – expand your business, have a home makeover or go on a luxury vacation.
