Have you ever considered the money you could save by looking into refinancing your home? When interest rates are low, you could save on your monthly mortgage payments! A mortgage refinance replaces your current home loan with a new one with new terms. This could include a new interest rate, the type of home loan, and the longevity of your loan. As the local real estate experts, Jeff Cook Real Estate can connect you with a trusted lender to help you begin the process of refinancing your home.
If your interest rate is 3% or higher, as long as your credit is good it is worth the effort to refinance and save money on your home payment each month! Additionally, if you purchased your home between 2013-2019, now is a great time to refinance and lock in that lower rate. Even if you refinanced in 2020 it might be worth looking to see if you can save even more money.
Before you dive into refinancing, it’s important to determine your goal. Are you looking to save on your monthly payment? Do you need cash to pay off debt? Do you want to shorten the term of your loan? Do you need to make home improvements? If you relate to any of the following scenarios... it’s time to begin the process of refinancing your home.
When choosing to refinance your home, there are many things that could change. Speak with a loan officer to create a customized plan for your refinance. Below are the different areas in which refinancing could benefit your mortgage plan.
If your current loan is an adjustable-rate loan you may find that your mortgage rate periodically adjusts. If you’re needing a steady payment each month, consider switching from an adjustable-rate loan to a fixed-rate loan.
Keep in mind when refinancing, if you choose to shorten your loan from a 30-year to a 15-year, the monthly payments will go up but you’ll end up paying less in interest over time. Additionally, if you need to pull cash out of your home, we offer those options as well.
Imagine your interest rate dropping by 2 points! Refinancing can potentially save you money on your monthly payment simply by refinancing with a lower interest rate.
The combination of lowering your interest rate and potentially removing PMI with a re-appraisal of your home could potentially save you anywhere from $200-$400 a month.
