When Refinancing Is Right for You
While refinancing your mortgage may seem like a great opportunity for you to lower your monthly mortgage payments and reduce your debt, make sure to use a mortgage calculator and calculate if refinancing your mortgage will actually save you in the long run.
Refinancing your mortgage should be done to reduce your interest rate, shorten your term, or consolidate any revolving debt.
Refinancing your mortgage may be right for you if:
- Your goal is to get a lower interest rate and lower your monthly payment
- You Want to shorten the length of years on your mortgage.
- You need to get out of an adjustable-rate (ARM) or interest-only mortgage
- Want to create additional cash flow each month with your savings.
Refinancing your mortgage may NOT be right for you if:
- You plan on moving within a year.
- You haven’t made timely payments on your mortgage within the last 12 months.
- You are upside-down on your mortgage and owe more than your property is worth. It may be difficult to be approved for a refinanced mortgage.
