    2 months of requesting document after document and poor response times to emails. I withdraw my application and went direct to a bank to cut out the middle man. What a waste of time and effort

    Got a great rate and the team worked hard to get the job done. Kept us up to date the whole way through the process.
    We were so impressed with Ben Ithell, he is knowledgeable, patient and worked really hard getting us an amazing deal that 8 other brokers I called said they couldn’t even touch due to our unusual circumstances. Please give Ben a call and have a chat he is very honest and will tell you straight up if he thinks he can help. Highly recommend him!

    Vaughan Enright was great to deal with. Not only he is well versed with all the home loan technicalities, he also has soft skills to deal with not so knowledgeable people like myself. Communication was outstanding with emails/calls immediately being answered.

    Thank you Reduce Home Loans! If we could give more than five stars, we would. Especially to Ben Ithell whose professionalism and help throughout the entire process was second to none. He is genuinely attentive, caring and a patient customer service/finance manager! We would certainly recommend him to anyone!

    Amazing experience, I cannot recommend this company or Kurt more. He found a path forward when multiple brokers (at other companies) could not make it work. Kurt does not mess around and I wholeheartedly recommend him if you need to get a loan.

    I used Kurt Trendle from Reduce Home Loans when completing my refinance. I found him to be extremely helpful, patient and found the right loan for me. I found the whole process to be extremely easy with Kurt. Thanks again!

    We have been with Reduce Home Loans since 2015 and they've consistently secured the best rates and account features for us. This month we refinanced to a very competitive rate thanks to our Personal Finance Manager Connor.Connor provided us with helpful guidance and thoroughly answered all our questions. Everything was completed promptly and he was so responsive with our queries. The application process has also become much more streamlined and user friendly over the years.Thanks to Connor (and previously Rhyse) at Reduce Home Loans, we've been able to achieve our dream of having a home for our family. We highly recommend them for their personalised, exceptional service and expertise, as well as their broad product offering. Thanks again!

    Vaughan Enright has been an absolute pleasure to deal with. He is always extremely responsive and helpful, listens to my needs, and has been working with me to get the best he can. He has been reliable, getting back to me quickly, calling when he says he will (great timekeeper). Very happy with the experience as I initially called 3 or 4 months ago, he has been very informative from tyre kicking/semi serious stage to now at crunch time. Definitely recommend working with him.

    I have used Reduce Home loans several times to refinance our loan. I cannot recommend them highly enough. They are extremely knowledgeable and have access to highly competetive interest rates. Their communication throughout the loan application process is excellent and it is very easy to get in touch with them when you need to. Definitely use Reduce!

    Overall, we are happy with our experience at Reduce. We moved from another non-bank lender, who wouldn't move our rate, despite their new owner rates being much lower, and our loans under what we originally borrowed. Nick and the team from Reduce were very easy to deal with, and our rate has been competitive since we started with them.

    I had a fantastic experience dealing with Reduce Home Loans who provided finance for my SMSF to purchase an investment property in July 22. I was particularly impressed with Bryce Stimpson's helpfulness, knowledge, responsiveness, professionalism and pleasantness. I received an excellent rate and am happy I went with Reduce.

    Using reduce loans has saved me a lot of money on our home loan. The staff are professional and caring, always easy to get in contact with and there to help with any questions you. The switch from one of the big 4 banks (wont name names of who was ripping us off!) was easy with reduce loans. I highly recommend anyone to get in contact and see how many money they can save you.

    Reduce Loans were able to find us a much better home loan rate. The process was so easy and we were walked through every step. Everything was done online and the whole process was handled quickly. I would highly recommend working with Reduce Loans.

    We secured a great loan with Reduce far below market rates of the large lenders. Was particularly impressed by their flexible banking style in setting up the loan and Nick Freeney was great to work with in the loan application. The only issue is the application process was longer and more admin intensive than some other loans so removing one star - but if you stick with it you can save a bunch over the life of the loan.

    What is a Self-Managed Superannuation Fund or SMSF?

    A self-managed super fund (SMSF) is a type of superannuation fund where the members are also the trustees. 

    The members have control over how the fund is managed and invested. 

    self-managed super funds can have up to four members, and all members must be trustees or directors of the trustee company. 

    Trustees must act in the best interests of all members, and they must take care to ensure that the fund is run prudently. 

    Self-Managed Superannuation Funds – the benefits

    There are various options for investment, including

    • Direct investing
    • There are a number of benefits to investing directly. Firstly, you have complete control over your investment. You can choose which companies or properties to invest in, and you can sell them whenever you want. Secondly, you can often achieve higher returns than if you invested in cash or fixed interest.
    • However, there are also some risks involved with direct investing. The most obvious is that your investment could go down in value if the company or property performs poorly. Additionally, it can be more difficult to sell shares or property quickly than it is to sell cash.
    • Collateral Investing
    • Collateral investing, in this case investing in real estate is regarded as a secure investment with almost guaranteed long-term capital growth.

    You control your own investments

    • SMSF trustees are responsible for making sound investment decisions that are in the best interests of all fund members. This includes making sure that the fund has a diversified portfolio of assets that meets the members’ retirement goals.

    You will have the best chance for consistent and stable earnings during your retirement

    • Many people believe that Self-Managed Superannuation Funds offer the best chance for stable and consistent earnings during retirement. This is because individuals have more control over their investments, and can choose a plan that best suits their needs.


    • Opportunities for investment equipping
    • Reduce your long-term costs by having lower fund management fees
    • Utilise tax benefits available from the Australian Tax Office (ATO)
    • Easier access to your retirement savings

    Things to consider before starting a Self-Managed Superannuation Fund

    How much time will I need to manage my own fund?

    • Setting up and running a self-managed superannuation fund (SMSF) takes time and effort, but the benefits can be worth it.
    • To set up a SMSF, you will need to establish a trust and register it with the Australian Taxation Office (ATO). You will also need to appoint trustees and create a investment strategy. Once your fund is up and running, you will need to review it regularly and make changes as needed. This can take time and requires a good deal of knowledge and experience.
    • Another thing to consider is that once your SMSF is established, it’s your responsibility to ensure that it remains compliant with all relevant regulations. This includes filing annual returns and making contributions on time. If you don’t comply, you could face penalties from the ATO.

    What are the costs involved?

    • When it comes to Self-Managed Superannuation Funds (SMSFs), there are a number of benefits that people often consider, see above.
    • However, with any type of investment or financial product, there are also associated costs. These costs can include set-up fees, annual management fees, accounting fees and legal fees.

    Will you lose out on benefits from your current superannuation fund when you switch to SMSF?

    • If you are thinking of making the switch to a self-managed super fund (SMSF), it’s important to understand how this could affect your present superannuation perks.
    • Generally, if you have an existing superannuation fund, you will lose any membership benefits you have with that fund when you switch to an SMSF. This includes things like death and Total and Permanent Disability (TPD) cover, as well as insurance premiums paid by the fund.

    If you are considering setting up a SMSF, be sure to do your research and seek professional advice.
