Home Refinance

Home refinancing could be the option you need to make your mortgage more manageable, but refinancing isn’t for everyone. If you aren’t sure whether it’s the right move for you, contact Lisa Johnson. She would be happy to help you understand the benefits.

What should I know before refinancing?

Refinancing is the process of getting a new mortgage to replace your current one. This allows borrowers to obtain a better interest rate or payment terms. First, the existing mortgage is paid off. Next, the refinanced mortgage is funded. This could be a wonderful choice for those with a great credit history to convert that variable rate into a fixed and lower-interest rate. However, if your credit is not where it should be, refinancing could be a risky decision.

How can I tell if refinancing is right for me?

Advantages of Refinancing Your Home Mortgage

Secure A Better Mortgage Rate. If mortgage rates have fallen since you took out your home loan, or you got your mortgage through a broker other than Lisa Johnson, chances are you can save money by refinancing your mortgage into a new home loan at a better rate. If your credit score has improved since you took out your mortgage, you may also be eligible for a lower rate.

Get Lower Monthly Payments. If you can secure a lower interest rate, you’ll likely be able to lower your monthly payments as well, especially if your refinanced mortgage has the same payoff date as your original home loan. You could also elect to extend your payoff date past what it currently is if you want to pay less in principle each month.

Shorten Your Mortgage Term. It’s common for homebuyers to begin with a 30-year home loan before refinancing down to a 15-year, fixed-rate mortgage after a couple years. Doing this allows you to pay off your mortgage faster and save a significant amount of money that you would have had to pay in interest if you stayed with the original 30-year home loan. Mortgage
