    About half year ago, I saw several brokers advertising that they'll reimburse refinancing costs (in addition to any lender promotions).

    Was telling a friend who needs to refinance now, but we can't find the promotions any more. Does anyone have a broker, preferably in VIC, that has this promotion to recommend? Thanks!

    might you be referring to lender rebates? There are few of these around atm.

    Are you after a good broker, or the cheapest broker? They’re two very different things...

    By definition, if they’re rebating, no-one is recommending them...b/c if people were, they wouldn’t need to rebate ;)

    Perhaps hop onto the Barefoot Investor FB page.

    I recall that was one his teachings, and there be some brokers there ready for the meal.

    Most of us older salts know how that works so........

    Some of the banks like St George...are offering 4k if done online and 2k if done via a broker.

    This may cover a lot of your refinance costs. I know some brokers will give you some of their upfronts. Speak to the brokers...there are other brokers than the ones on here.

    The $4k cash back offer with St George is the same across all distribution channels, including brokers.

    Sure you can! There's plenty of lenders with far better servicing profiles, better and cheaper products! :D

    Home Loan Refinance | St.George Bank:

    OK seems to be different on their site... I have seen varying rebates across the WBC group.

    Yep...but lots of people focus on the rates and do not lock at overall costs. ;)

    Agree St George are extremely conservative and harder to get great variable rates.
