Refinance Your Home Now and Lower Your Interest Rate

What is a refinance home loan?
A refinance home loan or a home loan refinance is a new loan obtained through your lender or a new lender to pay off existing loan. However, you may opt to apply for a lower interest rate and or cash out on your homes equity.

When should I refinance my home? It is a known fact that interest rates are lower than they have been in years. This is due to our fast paced and ever changing economy and market. Now would be the perfect opportunity to refinance your home to obtain a lower interest rate. Even a .25 difference can save you thousands of dollars a year in mortgage payments.

Why should I refinance my home?
There are several reasons home owners decides to refinance. The four most common reasons include:

To obtain a lower interest rate
Home owner generally are aware of interest rate down fall. They take advantage of this opportunity by applying to a refinance loan to lower their existing interest rates and save money on mortgage expenses. The money that a borrower saves on mortgage expenses can be invested in other financial investments.

To receive a refinance cash out
Some home owners who have enough equity accumulated in their homes refinance to cash out their equity and get a lower interest rate

To make home improvements
Sooner than later you will find that maintaining your home is hard work (not to mention quite expensive). In most cases, home owners will pursue a refinance, rather than a personal loan, in order to save on interest rates. A personal loan may have higher interest rates and are normally, not as large as a home improvement loan.

To change loan programs
A majority of home owner refinance because they are not satisfied with their current loan program. They may be under a 5 year arm, but somewhere down the line they decided they would prefer a 30 year fixed loan. Whatever the reason may be, a refinance home loan will solve the problem.

What are the benefits of refinancing my home?
There are several benefits included with refinancing your home, including:
Your credit may be in better standings then before you purchased your home, now you can refinance and obtain a more suitable loan, with lower interest rates and terms.
Or, you can obtain a home equity line of credit and have cash available when you need it.
With refinance cash out, your lender can consolidate your bills and pay off all of your debt. You will not have to deal with the hassle by yourself.

What are the different refinance loan options?
As with a traditional loan, refinance home loans offer some of the same loan programs, such as:
10/15/30 year fixed
Zero Down
Interest Only
And so on

Where can I refinance my loan?

    Very Good Reasons that you have mention. The main question is that, Is home loan getting easy?. Home loans are getting harder than ever to try to close nowadays with all of the changes going on in the mortgage industry. During the refinance boom years of 2002-2007 everybody could get approved on some kind of loan for the most part. Even if you tried to get approved on a normal conventional kind of home loan and could not get approved you could always fall back on a no income no asset loan (NINA) to close the loan. This loan was considered a sub-prime loan and came with higher interest rates but at least it could close.

    nowdays getting loan is not a kids job. Can you suggest how long this recession gonna be there?

  12. Guest Sep 30, 2009

    Be sure that you have a good credit score, if you have credit card balances try to pay it off before going to the bank, it wil save you many thousands dollar on interest over the life of the loan.

    In addition if you have always paid your mortgage on time probably is not a good idea to apply for refinance with your actual lender. Banks and lenders are greedy by nature, if they are making this much money with you right now and you obviously can pay tit hey will have no reason to give you better terms and make less money, but if you apply on another bank they will have to do better than the competition in order to have your business.
