Mortgage Refinancing: How to Get Started
What’s your goal?
Before deciding whether or not to refinance, you need to determine what your goals are. Remember, a refinance doesn’t pay down your debt; it simply restructures it, often at a lower interest rate and a different loan term than the current mortgage. Reducing the interest rate and expense is usually the reason most people refinance.
Debt consolidation is another reason of refinancing and this is known as a “cash out” refi. If you have both a first mortgage and a home equity mortgage, combining the two mortgages into one fixed-rate mortgage combines the payments over the loan term.
