FAQ (Frequently Asked Questions)
"How can I know if refinancing my mortgage in order to lower my payment is worth it?"
Ask yourself the following two questions:
- “How much will I really save here?” Things may have changed since you bought your home – mainly your creditworthiness, the home value, or the mortgage rates. Have any of these metrics improved since you purchased your home? If the answer is yes, don’t hesitate to contact us so we can evaluate your situation. Simply call us today at the toll-free number stated below.
- “How about the savings, will they cover the cost?” The closing costs on the mortgage may be added to the overall refinance sum. If you do that, you can avoid paying any money out of pocket at closing. However, refinancing to lower your payment may result in a longer term, which might increase the total interest long-term.
P.S. Don’t be shy! Talk to one of our Home Loan Experts by calling (805) 434-5226 to see if refinancing can help you lower your mortgage payment.
"What's refinancing really about? Can it lower my payment, if so how?"
By refinancing your home, you’re taking on a new loan with new (different) terms. In order to lower t he monthly payment, you should apply for a loan that provides the following:
- A Lower Interest Rate – The higher the interest rate of your loan is, the more expensive your mortgage will be over the life of your loan. A lower interest rate results in a lower payment, unless you shorten the length of your term.
- Gets Rid of Private Mortgage Insurance (or “PMI”) – Homeowners that choose to put less than 20% down on their home loan, are probably paying private mortgage insurance (PMI). In the event of your property increasing in value, or if you’ve built up enough equity in your original mortgage, you will be able to refinance your home so as to remove the expensive PMI.
- Refinances to a Longer-Term Loan – When you decide to refinance to a loan with a longer term, you’re stretching the owed amount over a longer time period. You might pay more in interest overall, your monthly payments decrease.
"Explain equity and how it can help me lower my mortgage payment?"
It’s simply the (appraised) value of your home, minus the amount that you still owe on your mortgage.
When your equity is higher, you can qualify for a better interest rate on your mortgage. This often means that you can lower your monthly home loan payments.
Having good enough equity could also enable you to get rid of private mortgage insurance (PMI). PMI is a monthly fee found in many home loans with a down payment that’s less than 20%.
