Freedmont Mortgage Group Guide to Refinancing a Home

When you refinance, you take out a new mortgage with more favorable terms, and use it to pay off your current loan.

Why should you refinance?

  • Lower your monthly mortgage payment
  • Save money for other uses
  • Consolidate debt
  • Build home equity faster
  • Obtain money for home improvements
  • Remove mortgage insurance

Most people refinance their mortgages to get a lower interest rate. But, a low rate is not the only reason you should consider:

  • You want to pay off your mortgage more quickly
    You may be able to shorten the length of your mortgage (say, from 30 to 15 years) while keeping your monthly payment at or near its current level. You could save thousands of dollars in interest.
  • You want to convert from an Adjustable Rate to a Fixed Rate
    Refinancing can allow you to change from an Adjustable Rate Mortgage into a Fixed Rate mortgage, ensuring a stable mortgage payment.
  • You want a better Adjustable Rate Mortgage
    An adjustable rate program may be available that has more favorable rates and terms than your current loan.
  • You want to consolidate debt
    If you have enough equity in your home, you can combine a home equity loan with your first mortgage to have one manageable payment. Or you can eliminate some other high-interest debt, such as credit cards or installment loans.
