Refinancing Your Mortgage

When’s the last time you took a look at your mortgage? It might have been the right fit back when you first bought your home, but things change, and life happens. If you’re not absolutely sure that your current home loan is right for you, it’s time for a Mortgage Check-up.

Why refinance? There are many reasons:

  • Lower your interest rate and monthly payments
  • Pay for home improvements
  • Consolidate debt
  • Eliminate or lower mortgage insurance
  • Pay off your home faster
  • Avoid increasing payments in an ARM loan
  • You’re upside down on your loan
  • Remove a co-borrower from your loan
  • Convert your home equity into cash

We can help you explore options and learn if refinancing your home is the best decision for your financial situation.
