Refinance Mortgage– Home Equity

Whether you want to refinance your existing mortgage or make use of your Home Equity for any purpose that you desire, the decision to refinance requires proper planning and consideration of several factors.

Take advantage of lower interest rates

Paying a penalty to break your existing mortgage is not necessarily a deterrent. Often, when you do the math, breaking your existing mortgage for a lower interest rate simply makes sense (and dollars). If breaking your mortgage can save you money over time, it should be seriously considered. Depending on the penalty and other variables of course… If you hold a variable rate mortgage, most often the penalty is three months interest. If you have a fixed rate mortgage, then you will likely pay the greater of three months interest or interest rate differential penalty (IRD). We can walk you through the math and advise you on whether refinancing makes sense for you.

Access Equity In Your Home

With refinancing, you can gain access to up to 80% of your home’s appraised value less the balance on your outstanding mortgage(s) (up to 85% for second mortgages). This equates to extra funds for consolidation, investment, renovations, education costs or whatever you desire. You can access your equity by breaking your mortgage, applying for a home equity line of credit, blend and increase your existing mortgage or apply for a second mortgage.
