Does Refinancing Make Sense?
There are many times when refinancing can help you save money and/or pay off your home loan sooner. Some reasons to refinance might include:
- If you plan on staying in your home for several more years,
- You can lower your rate by at least 1%,
- You have an ARM (adjustable rate mortgage) that is about to adjust with no or a small pre-payment penalty.
Before you refinance, know your goals.
Are you trying to:
- Lower your rate?
- Lower your payment?
- Take cash out?
- Consolidate debt?
- Shorten the term?
- Use your equity for other expenses?
Because refinancing involves out-of-pocket closing costs, knowing your goals is important. We recommend talking to one of our Mortgage Originators first. They'll help evaluate the best option for your specific situation.
