Why should I refinance?
If you are currently in a low, 30 year fixed rate; you're in
good shape. But, if any of the reasons below applies to your
current situation, you may want to look at refinancing.
1. Decrease Monthly Payments.
If you can get a fixed rate that is lower than the one you currently have,
you can lower your monthly payments.
2. Get cash from the equity in your home.
If you have enough equity you can get cash out by refinancing. You can use
the cash for home improvements, college tuition, or any other major expenditure
you may have.
3. Switch from an adjustable to a fixed rate.
If interest rates are increasing and you want the security of a fixed rate,
or if rates have fallen below your current rate, it may be to your advantage
4. Consolidate Debt.
You can refinance your mortgage to pay off debt. If you are carrying balances
on high interest credit cards, you can save money each month by refinancing.
The interest you pay on credit cards simply goes out the window. By refinancing,
you can take advantage of a lower interest rate-and that interest is tax-deductible.
5. Pay off your mortgage sooner.
If you switch to a shorter term you can save interest and pay off your home
earlier. Your payment may not be much higher than what you are currently paying.
