Refinance vs Refix
What is the difference between refixing and refinancing?
Re-fixing your mortgage refers to a new loan with the same bank you’re already with. Refinancing is when you change banks to take advantage of lower rates. Whilst it’s easier to stay with your current bank, it can be better to refinance your mortgage with a different bank who will offer more attractive interest rates or offer you cash back to incentivize you to switch. Most banks have dedicated teams to help people switch banks and all automatic payments are seamlessly brought over. One of the reasons banks do this is because of their monthly targets. Your current bank might not be able to match the attractive rates and rewards being offered by other banks.
