winter news 2015

Hello! Hopefully you’re getting used to this crisp Winter weather we’ve been enjoying. As many of our clients have settled into their new homes since buying in peak season of Spring or Summer, they are seeming well and truly content by now (some have even finished unpacking!), and they seem happy to settle in for a warm cosy Winter.

In this issue:

We’re excited to announce the winner of our last competition, which was a fabulous trip for 2 to Hong Kong, valued at $9,250. A huge congratulations to A. Lam – bon voyage and enjoy your trip! Plus enter our next big competition below, to win a spectacular cruise to Alaska!

We’re also very proud to announce our new ‘Energise Referral Program’. Check out the details below on how you can earn a $50 Eftpos card for every successful client loan that you send our way!

“Team Energise” was proud to be supporting our charity of choice, the Humpty Dumpty Foundation by entering the Balmoral Burn in May – see our story below.

We’ve also included 5 great tips on how to get BIG renovation results on a small budget.

As well as our  Winter warmer recipe for settling in for a long cosy dinner party with friends. 

We wish you a warm and comfortable Winter – a good time to review your finances for a better deal while you’re snuggling inside! After all, the new financial year is almost upon us. You know who to call, we are always here to help!   

Warm regards,
Brian and Rebecca Rusten

autumn 2015Welcome to the Autumn edition of our newsletter, where March marks the start of the impending cooler weather. But don’t panic – we’re not quite at the stage of roaring fires and electric blankets just yet!

You might notice that our Autumn newsletter is just a few weeks later than usual. For the first time in our five year history, we have been so swamped with customers and life and our own renovations that our newsletter has needed to take a very tiny backseat – hopefully just this once we promise!

In this edition:

The Reserve Bank announced another interest rate cut since our Summer newsletter, which is great news if you’re looking to buy or upgrade or even refinance.

Plus don’t forget to enter our amazing new competition, with your chance to win an exciting adventure for two to Hong Kong, valued at $9,250!

And, with the cooler weather heading our way, check out our delicious recipe to tempt you back indoors after the long hot Summer that Sydney has just enjoyed.

Plus, is it a buyer’s or a seller’s market in Australia right now? Check out our story below to find out.

Finally, see our top twelve tips to pay off your home loan sooner, and what this means for you.

We look forward to assisting many of you in coming months.

Warm regards,
Brian and Rebecca Rusten

Hello and welcome to our Spring newsletter. We love this time of year as we really feel the buzz of the real estate market picking up. This is great news for many of our clients that have pre-approved finance in place, and just haven’t been able to find the right property while there has been less housing stock on the market over Winter.

In this edition, we explore the opportunity at hand for you right now while interest rates seem steady. We explain how we can benefit you by arranging a personal loan, but not at personal loan rates (!) plus check out our yummy Spring recipe, just in time for all of the entertaining you might be doing with the warmer weather upon us.

And don’t forget to get your entry in for a chance to win our fabulous trip for two to New York, valued at over $9,500!

Wishing you all a glorious Spring season as we all come out of hibernation and start to reconnect with all that beautiful Sydney has to offer.

And if you’re planning to buy a new or upgraded home this season, don’t forget to get in contact as soon as possible so we can arrange pre-approved finance for you – there is lots of competition out there amongst buyers and we want to give you every possible chance to win the home that you want.

Happy Spring everyone!

Warm regards,
Brian and Rebecca Rusten

Hello and welcome to our Winter newsletter. And no, the photo below is not a mistake! In the past week or so, temperatures have reached as high as 28 degrees! Unbelievably it was a short few days to the start of Winter at the time, but certainly all signs to the contrary!

It’s been another busy few months at Energise. We’ve had a number of clients looking for homes but without much choice out there, but all of a sudden, quite a few of them have happily found a home after all, and we couldn’t be happier for them! Plus, we note that a couple of Saturdays ago, we had the highest number of auctions scheduled in Sydney’s history EVER on one day!

In this edition, we explore the facts behind car dealer finance, explain how to use the equity in your home to buy an investment property, and explain the benefits of reducing your home loan as quickly as possible while interest rates are so low.

Plus check out our story on ‘Team Energise’ pushing up the steepest hill in Sydney for the Balmoral Burn, to raise funds for our charity of choice, the Humpty Dumpty Foundation.

Wishing you all a cosy Winter (or a balmy one, whichever is going to apply??). And please feel welcome to contact us if you need any lending or financial assistance – we are always more than happy to assist.

Warm regards,
Brian and Rebecca Rusten
