The average credit card interest rate is around 15%. By comparison, mortgage rates are currently in the 3–4% range.
If the current value of your home is greater than your current mortgage balance, it means you have equity in your home. You may be able to use this equity to refinance your current mortgage and receive cash at a low interest rate to pay off your credit card debt.
Home equity is the appraised value of your home minus the amount you still owe on your loan.
The more equity you have, the more money you may be able to get from a cash-out refinance. Many homeowners take cash out to pay off high-interest debt or make home improvements. Use our refinance calculator to see if you have enough equity to reach your financial goal.
It’s possible to add the costs associated with getting a new mortgage into the total refinance amount to avoid paying anything out of pocket at closing. However, refinancing to get cash out or consolidate your debt may result in a longer loan term or a higher rate, and that might mean paying more in interest overall in the long run.
Talk to a Home Loan Expert or use our refinance calculator to see if refinancing your home can help you consolidate your debt.
Some states have limits on how soon or how often their residents can refinance a home loan; these limits are often designed to ensure that the refinance process benefits the homeowner. Regulations aside, it’s very important to make sure that refinancing helps you meet your financial goals. Deciding if it makes sense to refinance your home depends on a number of factors: Does your current lender have a prepayment penalty? Do you have enough equity built up in your home? Are interest rates lower now than they were when you first got your home loan? Do you plan to stay in your home for many years? Use our refinance calculator to see if refinancing your home can help you meet your goal.
