St. Louis Mortgage Rate Update; Why Refinance?

With interest rates at all time lows, it is worth the few minutes to do a mortgage check up and determine if a refinance would be beneficial to your situation. Since there are many reasons a homeowner may choose to refinance, we’ll take a look at the few most common reasons to consider a refinance.

  • Mortgage Rates Drop: The most common reason that homeowners refinance their mortgage is to secure a lower interest rate (and possibly shorten the amortization). Interest rate and loan amount determines the total cost that a borrower will pay. The lower the interest rate, the less the overall cost will be.
  • Lower Payments: Lowering a mortgage payment can be achieved by lowering the mortgage rate, lengthening the loan term, combining two or more loans or removing mortgage insurance.
  • New Mortgage Program: Refinancing an Adjustable Rate Mortgage (ARM) to a new Fixed Rate Mortgage (FRM), combining a first and second mortgage or paying off a balloon loan are just a few possible reasons to explore a refinance.
  • Debt Consolidation: If there is sufficient equity, sometimes paying off consumer debt by combining all debts into one lower monthly mortgage payment can significantly reduce the short-term deficits in a budget. However, it’s important to keep in mind the total cost of that debt by adding it into a 30 year mortgage payment.

A mortgage is generally the largest debt most homeowners have to manage. It’s a good idea to give your personal real estate finance portfolio a good review at least once a year.
