When is Mortgage Refinancing Right?

Back to Menu

If you're presently in a conventional mortgage loan, this may indicate your credit is in very good shape.

If you have good credit and a conventional loan, you most likely have several refinance loan options that could save you money on your biggest single monthly obligation.

If you're doing a cash out refinance, the type of loan you presently have doesn't matter as much as the benefit of the new loan you're getting. Quick Apply

If you need money fast to payoff bills, make those improvements around the home in Cary, NC, or for whatever reason fits your situation, cashing out on the equity in your home can sometimes make the most sense. However, you may want to consider a Second Mortgage rather than a first mortgage if your present rate is exceptional.

With rates still so low, your timing simply couldn't be better to take advantage of your equity in a way that will maximize your financial strategy regardless of the loan type you want to look at.

If you need assistance working through the Conventional mortgage refinance analysis phase, just give us a call!

If you are a homeowner in Mississippi who was lucky enough to buy when mortgage rates were low, you may have no interest in refinancing your present loan. But perhaps you purchased your home when rates were higher. Or perhaps you have an adjustable rate loan and would like to obtain different terms, such as the popular 7/1 ARM. Perhaps you simply need cash out to consolidate obligations and improve household cash flow. Maybe, you refinanced into a program that simply isn't right for you. Quick Apply

In the end, whether you believe refinancing is best for you will depend upon your own assessment of your financial health, your present comfort with your existing loan, and your long term financial goals. This section of our site is designed to provide useful, thought-provoking information and answers that we believe may help you decide what's best for you in a low pressure setting.

If you decide to refinance, you will find that the process will remind you of what you went through in getting your original mortgage loan. That's because, in reality, refinancing a mortgage is simply taking out a new mortgage. You will encounter many of the same procedures and the same types of costs the second time around. Lifestyle-Mortgage.com strives to streamline the process and make it as easy and hassle free as possible for our clients.

Would Refinancing Be Worth It?

Refinancing can be worthwhile for many homeowners, but it simply does not make good financial sense for everyone. A general rule is that refinancing becomes worth your while if the current interest rate on your mortgage is at least one and a half percentage points higher than the prevailing market rate. This figure is generally accepted as the average safe margin when balancing the costs of refinancing a mortgage against the savings. Quick Apply

There are other considerations, too, such as how long you plan to stay in the house, how many years are remaining on your current loan, whether you are in a 1/1 ARM, 3/1 ARM, or other less traditional ARM, or 10, 15, 20 or 30 year fixed rate loan measured against the present amount to be financed. An important fact to remember is, the cost to close as a percentage goes up gradually as many costs are fixed. So, the higher the balance to be refinanced, the lower the rate difference needs to make sense to refinance in terms of real dollars saved.

Refinancing can be a good idea for homeowners who:

  • Want to get out of a high interest rate loan due to being a Bad Credit Home Buyer to take advantage of lower rates? This is a good idea only if you intend to stay in the house long enough to make the additional fees worthwhile. Typically, it works out to be worthwhile only if you plan on staying put for at least five years.
  • Want to hold the home as a "short term" investment and utilize an interest first product that allows you to "bank" equity rather than pay down principal, thus reducing payments and increasing cash flow.
  • Have an adjustable rate mortgage (ARM) conventional or Jumbo Mortgage and want a fixed-rate loan to have the certainty of knowing exactly what the mortgage payment will be for the remaining life of the loan.
  • Want to convert to an Adjustable-Rate Loan (ARM) with a lower interest rate or more protective features (such as a better rate and payment caps) than the ARM they currently have.
  • Want to refinance out of a balloon loan before the note comes due.
  • Want to get out of a negatively amortizing loan product such as the Option ARM Program.
  • Want to build up equity more quickly by converting to a loan with a shorter term.
  • Want to draw on the equity built up in the home to get cash for a major purchase, debt consolidation or their children's education.
  • Quick Apply

Mortgage Refinancing may not be a good idea if you:

  • Are presently in a 10, 15 or 20 year loan.
  • Have fewer than 20 years on your existing 30 year loan.
  • Do not plan on owning the home for more than 4 additional years.
  • Do not see a significant savings as a percentage based on present payment, rate & or terms.
  • Do not experience significant cash flow improvement utilizing the equity in a cash out loan.

In deciding whether to refinance an ARM mortgage, you should consider these questions:

  • Is the next interest rate adjustment on your existing loan likely to increase your monthly payments substantially?
  • Will the new interest rate be two or three percentage points higher than the prevailing rates being offered for either fixed-rate loans or other ARMs?
  • If the current mortgage sets a cap on your monthly payments, are those payments still large enough to pay off your loan by the end of the original term?
  • Will refinancing a new ARM or a fixed-rate enable you to pay your loan in full by the end of the term?
  • Quick Apply

A prepayment penalty on your present Tennessee mortgage could be the greatest detriment to refinancing.

What is a prepayment penalty? A prepayment penalty is pre-paid interest for a period of time (typically 6 months) that must be paid by the borrower for early payoff of a loan product when completing a mortgage refinancing package. Typically, they are found in Sub-Prime lending and conventional ARM products with below normal start rates, although in some instances, they can be applied to fixed products as well.

In a mortgage loan refinance, the practice of charging money for an early payoff of the existing mortgage loan varies by state, type of lender, and type of loan. Prepayment penalties are forbidden on various loans including those from federally chartered credit unions, FHA and VA loans, and some other home-purchase loans. The mortgage documents for your existing loan will state if there is a penalty for prepayment.

Even with all of these details, sometimes, it's just hard to know the right answer. To consult with a loan pro, call Lifestyle toll free or use our easy Quick Apply form.

Your neighbors keep bragging about that great rate they just got. The TV is filled with advertisements that warn that homeowners should "Refinance now before rates rise." Then there's the slick print advertisement promising you a rate at "1.25%" with type so small you can't even begin to read it without a microscope. Not to mention the fast talking radio pitch man telling you about the "1.9%" rate you can get if you just call now for more information.

So much information, so few facts.

Looking at the broad spectrum of possibilities can simply be overwhelming. There are many factors to be considered when refinancing. The most important question to ask yourself, is "Why?"

If the reason for refinancing is to achieve a better rate and interest savings, then it becomes far more critical to know the answers. If it's for a lower mortgage payment, home improvement, debt consolidation or a simple cash out, then the importance is reduced to the impact on your lifestyle.

There are two primary methods used for identifying the benefit of a mortgage loan refinance. The first is known as a "Break-even analysis" and really should only be used for short term mortgages where the long term benefit has less importance or no consequence. This process tells you at what point the new loan has paid for itself and the results are monthly payment driven. This kind of analysis is best suited for evaluating a loan when a borrower does not plan to stay in a home for more than 3, 5, 7, or 10 years. Quick Apply

The second is a "Life of loan analysis" and looks at the total amortization of a particular home mortgage loan product. This process is best suited for individuals for analyzing the loans of individuals who do not intend to move.

Below you will find an example of each scenario.

Example: (Life of loan)

John & Jane Doe from Talladega, AL have a 15 year mortgage they took out 12 months ago. Their Initial Mortgage amount was $100,000.00, at 6.75%. Their Monthly Principal and Interest Payment is $884.91 and their existing payoff is $96,009.12. (We assume the Doe's have made 12 payments, and they have made no early principal reductions.)

In its simplest form:

Multiply the Doe's current principal and interest payment by the number of months remaining on the existing loan: $884.91 x 168 remaining payments = $148664.88 in total payments remaining.

Now take the existing payoff and add into that the cost of the new loan (Closing costs). Lets estimate $2700.88 for this exercise. The payoff, plus costs to close will leave us with a new principal of $98,710.00.

If we finance this loan on another 15 year note @ 4.5%, a reduction of 2.25%, our new monthly principal and interest payment would be $755.12 x the new term (180) and this tells us the cost of this loan is $135,921.60 for a GROSS savings of $12,743.28.

Now, we have to account for the extra 12 months we've added to the note. This is calculated not based on the new payment, but based on what it has already cost the Doe's. So, the Doe's were paying $884.91 x the months they've paid (12) for a total loss of $10,618.92. This give us a NET savings of $2,124.36.

This is the time when you have to weigh the added year and lower payment VS the savings in a home mortgage loan refinance transaction. (Remember, the closing costs are accounted for in the amount financed). If it's just a payment issue, then naturally, you may want to push out to a 20 or 30 year note. If you're looking to do a debt consolidation loan, you use the same idea, but you account for the interest of any item you're financing into the new mortgage note. Quick Apply

Example: (Break-even analysis)

Jane Doe of Pell City, AL just finished her residency and has decided her 5 year goal is to move home to Chicago, IL and open a practice of her own. Her 5 year plan calls for saving $100,000.00 for startup costs and utilizing the natural appreciation in her current home as the down payment on her new residence in Chicago.

Jane Doe is currently in a 30 year fixed rate mortgage @ 6.5%, of which she has paid 24 payments. Her monthly Principal and Interest payment is $1422.15, and her current payoff is $219,000.00.

Jane Doe has opted for a 5/1 Libor program, of which the first 5 years of the loan are fixed. Her rate of interest is 3.75%. Her closing costs for this loan product will be $6000.00 giving her a new loan amount of $225,000.00. Based on this program, her interest only payment will be $1042.01.

By taking her new payment ($1042.01) and subtracting her old payment ($1422.15) she is saving an additional $380.14 per month. By dividing the savings into the cost to close, we learn that it will take Jane 15.78 months to pay for the new loan. This means that Jane can save an additional $16808.40 toward her short term goal over her five year plan by taking the new loan.

So, now that you've gotten this far, how do you know what loan product is right for you? It begins with knowing what type of loan you're wanting. A loan officer with Lifestyle-Mortgage.com can help you to assess whether mortgage refinancing is the right option for you, or whether you should use secondary financing such as a second mortgage, Home Equity Line of Credit or Home Equity Loan.
