Are you familiar with the benefits of mortgage refinancing?
There are many reasons to refinance your mortgage, like lowering your monthly payments, saving on interest, or simply paying off your loan faster.
But before you commit, it’s important you know how refinancing works. In this article, we’ll share all that you need to know to make the best decision based on your current situation and financial goals.
Refinancing means that you are applying for a new loan on your property. Ideally, your new “refinanced loan” should have better terms than the old one.
Here are some examples of better terms that refinancing may offer you.
If you realize that your monthly payments are too high, a refinance can help ease your burden.
You can refinance for a longer loan term, such as going from a 15-year mortgage to a 30-year mortgage which can significantly lower your monthly payments.
For those who have adjustable-rate mortgages, switching to a low fixed rate may be the answer to your financial struggles. Many have already taken advantage of current low-interest rates, ensuring that no matter where the rate may go in the future, they will have a reliable monthly payment they can afford.
While mortgage refinancing has its benefits, there are a few things to consider before committing to a new loan. For example, similar to a regular mortgage, refinancing loans have closing costs including credit report fees, appraisal fees, title services, lender fees, survey fees, and underwriting fees --all of which could be an additional financial burden.
If your financial situation is not stable, it might be better to put your refinancing plans on hold until your situation stabilizes.
Lower monthly payments? Shorter loan term? It would be best if you decided what your goal is with refinancing right off the bat.
