When it comes to money saving tips, the buzz word on everyone’s lips right now is ‘solar’.  With electricity costs predicted to double over the next 10 years it certainly makes money saving sense to consider getting solar panels installed and take advantage of Australia’s natural energy.  This month’s article shows how government incentives can work to help get you started.

Happy saving!

Could solar save you?



How do you know if it’s time to refinance or consolidate your loans? Let me ask you another question. When is it a good time to put money back in your pocket? EVERY YEAR you should take a home loan health check to find out if the loan you have is still saving you money. A lot can happen in a year, life circumstances can change, you may have taken on extra debts and rates may have moved substantially so you owe it to yourself and your cash flow to check your home loan and debt situation every year.

Every client at Assured is unique, just like you. The reasons to refinance or consolidate are unique also.  You may be looking to;
