Husband and wife save $1500 a month after Resimac Specialist Clear solution


Christopher and Dianne Fisher* are a married couple living in Geraldton, Western Australia. Here is how Resimac helped them overcome their many debts and greatly reduced their monthly loan commitments.

Christopher is a self-employed mechanic while Dianne runs a food truck business.

The couple have a sizeable mortgage and are feeling the pinch of high interest rates across all their loans.

Christopher has used credit cards and personal loans to further his business. He also has a weakness for fast cars, and has used personal loans to get his hands on vehicles he could not otherwise afford.

Dianne has been trying to maximise sales from the food truck business. She has taken a number of personal loans for vehicle and equipment upgrades.

In addition, the couple have taken cash out of their home loan for renovations.

Here are their current debts:

Debt type Value
Cash out for home renovations 6.9 per cent interest $77,478
Credit card 19.99 per cent interest $3,032
Credit card 19.99 per cent interest $700
Personal loan 12.50 per cent interest $9,500
Personal loan 13.99 per cent $51,000
Personal loan 11.99 per cent $15,000
Personal loan 14.99 per cent $20,000
Mortgage loan 6.9 per cent interest $425,000


The couple are paying $6,700 per month on repayments.

While the Fishers' self-employed status and many loans is an impediment to refinancing with a bank, their broker knows Resimac offers a range of Specialist products that are flexible and cater to self-employed borrowers.

The broker is also aware that one of the features of the Resimac Specialist Clear product allows for unlimited debts to be consolidated. This is just what the Fishers need.

The broker consolidates all the debts into a home loan using the Specialist Clear product.

Based on the Fishers' circumstances, they are now making one repayment at a Specialist Clear Full Doc principal and variable interest rate of 6.49 per cent. This interest rate is based on the LVR band of 70.01 per cent to 80 per cent^.

Most importantly, debt consolidation has lowered their monthly repayment to $5,200. This solves their cashflow problem and provides more money to either repay the home loan sooner, or invest in their businesses.
