I know many Australians are doing it tough out there right now.
Through no fault of their own, homeowners are having to manage skyrocketing mortgage repayments.
The Reserve Bank of Australia’s decision to increase the official cash rate for the past 10 consecutive meetings has left nearly 800,000 Australians at risk of mortgage default. At YBR Home Loans, we’re on a mission to hear the voices of those impacted most by this aggressive increase in interest rates.
We want to hear from you… your story, your struggles and particularly, if you’re worried about your ability to meet your mortgage repayments.
My team and I are going to randomly select five mortgage holders from across Australia who are struggling with their mortgage repayments, to give away twelve thousand dollars to each winner in order to help ease the strain of rapidly increasing interest rates.
If you’re going to struggle to meet your mortgage repayments as you come off your fixed interest rate, or if you’re already struggling to meet your repayments, please fill out the details below and outline your circumstances.
By filling out your details below, my team at YBR Home Loans will review your situation, and if you’d like, one of our experienced mortgage brokers will reach out to you to offer what assistance they can.
Thank you for taking the time to share your story and we will be in contact shortly with more details about this process.
