Refinancing your existing
mortgage is most often used to lower your
current interest rate. If rates have dropped since you last financed your home, you may want to consider refinancing. Other common reasons to refinance include paying off a balloon payment, converting an adjustable rate loan to a fixed rate loan, or to
take cash out. A few reasons for cashing out include: home improvement,
paying off student loans, paying for college, and paying
off high interest credit cards.
Another way to convert equity in your home to cash is a "home equity" loan. A "home equity" loan is an alternative to refinancing if your home loan has a very low rate compared to current interest rates or if you have a prepayment penalty on your loan.
Just imagine what you could do with an extra $100, $300,
$500 or more each and every month.
You might decide to apply the savings toward your balance and build equity faster. Or maybe you just might want to put the money in your savings account or portfolio and watch it GROW! The best thing is. you're in control . You decide what is best for your family!
