achieving financial goals in your 40s

By now you’ve probably settled into your own home and are raising a family. Your 40’s is likely a period where you’re looking at further home upgrades and creature comforts for your lifestyle. From home renovations to buying that dream motorcycle, or as the kids grow bigger maybe an upgrade to the family car, there are plenty of things we’d like to tick off with a growing family. Here we look at the top reasons you might be looking for financial assistance in your 40’s.

Family Car Upgrade

When considering upgrading your vehicle, it’s essential that you get a rough idea of what your current vehicle is worth to get an idea of what you will be able to spend for your next one. Have a look at what similar models are worth on sites like Redbook and what they’re selling for on sites like Car Sales and go from there.

Another easy option is to talk to your financier direct and let them know you’re thinking of upgrading your car. They’ll be able to advise you on the best course of action.
