Our Team Saved Clients £5,000 Monthly on a £5.4 Million Wimbledon Mansion!

by | Wednesday 24th Jan 2024 | Mortgage Case Studies

In the highly sought after Wimbledon real estate market, our clients embarked on the journey of purchasing a £5.4 million residential property with a substantial £2.2 million mortgage over a 22-year term. Focused on minimising their mortgage payments, our clients engaged with us, seeking the best possible interest rates to ensure financial comfort throughout the payment period.

Initial Rate For Property In Wimbledon and Market Conditions

Our clients came to us through recommendation to help them purchase their dream home in the most cost effective way possible. Initially securing a mortgage at a rate of 4.87%, deemed the best on the market at the time, our clients were already on a promising trajectory in a turbulent rate market. However, being vigilant in the fluctuating mortgage landscape, we made it our responsibility to keep up to date with rate changes and to help our clients continue to secure the best rate available, should it change prior to them completing the purchase.

Rate Changes

Through our proactive approach and our own close connections with UK mortgage lenders, we successfully negotiated rate changes four times between the initial offer and the completion of the mortgage process for our clients. This strategic manoeuvring of mortgage rates allowed us to secure progressively lower rates, transitioning from 4.87% to 4.59%, then 4.44%, and finally settling at an impressively low 4.43%. Something that our clients were absolutely over the moon about.

Substantial Monthly Savings

Each rate adjustment contributed to substantial monthly savings for our clients. The series of rate changes ultimately resulted in a monthly reduction of almost £300 in mortgage payments. Or almost £3,600 a year just by reducing the rate by 0.45%.

Strategic Use of an Interest-Only Loan

In addition to the interest rate changes we managed to negotiate for the clients, we also explored and successfully arranged an interest-only loan for our clients. This move, although not advisable for every borrower, further lowered their monthly payments, aligning with their financial goals and preferences. The combination of lower interest rates and the interest-only structure reduced the overall monthly payment for our clients by almost £5,000 a month. Or a whopping £60,000 a year.

Client Satisfaction and Financial Empowerment

Our clients were not only thrilled with the savings achieved but also appreciated the financial flexibility afforded by the interest-only mortgage arrangement. The collaborative efforts of our experienced advisors and administration team ensured that our clients not only secured the best possible mortgage rates but also crafted a bespoke financial solution tailored to their specific needs.
