Save more on interest
POSTED IN ADVICE ON THURSDAY, APRIL 8, 2021
Is mortgage refinancing right for you?
When mortgage rates fall, you may hear that it's a good time to refinance your home loan. Refinancing means replacing your mortgage with a new loan, and it's usually the best to do it when you can get a lower interest rate. Common reasons to refinance include lowering your monthly payment, saving more on interest and paying off your home faster.
Should I refinance?
If you're considering refinancing, start by thinking about your finances. Just like applying for any loan, you'll want to make sure your credit score and debt-to-income ratio are in good shape. For a mortgage refinance specifically, you'll need to be current on your loan payments.
Next, think about how long you plan to stay in your home. If you're planning to sell soon, you might not save enough to make refinancing worthwhile. This is especially true if you choose a traditional mortgage refinance; closing costs can run into the thousands, which eats into the savings you'll get from a better rate. (Keep reading for a great way to avoid this!) The bigger the difference between your current rate and the rates being offered, the more you'll save.
