To determine whether or not it is a good idea for you to refinance, you should look at your specific situation and your motivation for refinancing. The most common reasons are lower refinance rates and/or payment, convert from an adjustable to a fixed rate, or a cash out refinance to consolidate debt or improve your home. If your objective is to reduce your rate and payment, you should review your current interest rate and see how much you can save with a 0 point loan and then determine if it makes sense to pay points to reduce your rate further. If you are converting your adjustable rate into a fixed rate, you may actually see an increase in your rate and payment but you'll get peace of mind knowing your rate will never increase again. If you are using the equity in your home to consolidate debt, your overall loan balance and payment may go up, but you will save monthly because you will eliminate the monthly obligations that you are paying off. Your mortgage lending officer can run some numbers for you and help you determine whether or not refinancing makes sense for you.
Before you refinance your home, it's important to know what questions to ask, research available loan options, calculate refinance payments and determine whether or not refinancing will benefit you. Once you decide that refinancing will help you, be sure you understand the process so that you know what to expect.
Depending on the reasons why your credit is imperfect, there are great loan options available including our government programs. Call and speak with one of our licensed lending officers to determine whether or not you qualify for one of our programs.
Every situation is different. It depends on what your current interest is and what your motivation is for refinancing. If your current rate is higher than what is available in the market, it probably makes sense to refinance. To get an idea of what you could save by refinancing, check out our payment savings calculator in our mortgage calculator page and input numbers specific to your situation or call one of our licensed mortgage bankers for some expert advice.
