Three Reasons to Refinance Your Mortgage

Beautiful Florida house

Working in the West Palm Beach (Palm Beach County) mortgage industry for many years we have assisted and advised many clients looking to refinance their mortgage. All our clients had questions about refinancing. How does it work? Is this something that would actually benefit them?

A professional, experienced mortgage loan officer like those at Ideal Lending can help you determine if now is the right time to refinance your mortgage. This is dependent on your individual financial situations and needs. If you are considering refinancing here are three reasons that it would benefit you.

1. You may be able to change the term of your Mortgage

Switching to a longer term to decrease monthly payments or changing to a shorter term to save money in the long-run are the main reasons why people choose to refinance a mortgage. The flip side to this particular point is you will incur more interest charges. It all depends on your current situation, what your goals are and what you can afford.

2. Changing the Interest Rate

You could possibly change your interest rate with a rate & term refinance. When current interest rates are lower than that of your existing mortgage, refinancing may be able to help secure more favorable loan terms for the life of the loan.

3. Cash-Out Refinance

Another reason to refinance is to consolidate some of your debt. This does come with the potential downfall of paying more in interest because you would now have more debt on your mortgage after transferring a credit card or line of credit balance to it.

Many reasons exist why someone may want to refinance their mortgage. We see it all the time and it can actually benefit you in the short and long term. Of course, it is always wise to consult a mortgage loan officer. If you’re considering doing this they can help you determine whether or not it is the best thing for you to do at the time.

As an experienced mortgage lender based in Palm Beach County, we have the right knowledge to help our clients find the right solution for them and that often includes a mortgage refinance.
