What is a refinance? 

Simply put, a refinance is the replacement of the current mortgage with a new one, providing a change of terms and interest rates over the old one to obtain a tangible benefit. As I tell my clients, refinancing is buying your home once again!

Why should you consider a refinance? 

Unless you have been living in a cave on an isolated island, then you probably have heard about the ridiculous all-time low interest rates in today's market. If you purchased a home or refinanced before 2010, you may want to consider doing this again, as rates are much lower than what they used to.

Is refinancing only to obtain a lower interest? 

Not necessarily. Refinancing gives you the opportunity to not only lower your borrowing interest rate to save money on your payments but also to shorten the term to be paid on your mortgage. With today's rates this low, it would not be unusual if you went from a 30-year fixed rate to a 15-year rate without experiencing a "payment shock".

Thinking of doing home improvements in your home or pay for high-cost credit cards? Consider a cash out refinance! 

A cash out refinance allows you to:

  • Take the equity of your home to finance projects in your home. These refinances have become more populars as the rates are generally lower than those on Home Equity Lines and Home Equity Lines of Credit. Further, with today's rates being at all-time lows, many borrowers are taking advantage of their equity and still experience a lower payment on their monthly mortgage. 
  • If your debt burden in credit cards, car or student loans have become too much to bear. With lower rates on a cash out refinance than on credit card and installment loans, you may be able to wipe all if not the majority of your debt at a lower cost, allowing you to utilize your money in other things. 

Are there any programs out there that help you refinance?
