Is a Mortgage Refinance Right For You?

 

Well…Is a mortgage refinance right for you?

With rates for 30-year mortgages hovering below 4 percent since last October, all kinds of homeowners are trying to get their monthly mortgages reduced, say lenders and mortgage experts.

It’s prompted many established homeowners with old-school, high interest mortgages to decide it’s time to refi.

 

To determine whether you should refinance, look at how long you plan to be in your

current home and whether the upfront costs outweigh the monthly savings. Generally

 

the primary reasons for refinancing a mortgage are to:

 

• Lower monthly mortgage payments.

 

• Eliminate the unpredictability of an adjustable-rate mortgage by switching to a

 

fixed rate.

 

• Free up home equity cash for home improvements, college costs or other

 

expenses.

 

• Shorten the loan term, say from a 30- to a 15-year mortgage, which can save

 

thousands in interest payments.

 

Money you will save if you refinance

 

and fees. Start with your current lender or sit down with a local loan originator. You can also

 

do refinance comparisons online, using mortgage calculators at sites like HTTP://www.Bankrate.com 

 

or those of individual banks and lenders.

Affordable Refinance Program and FHA refinance programs that have made refinancing

 

options more plentiful.
