Are you ready to refinance your mortgage?
As you begin exploring refinancing, there are a few key points to keep in mind.
- What is your remaining term on your current loan? You’ll be resetting the timer when you refinance. Is your goal to reduce your monthly payments – or even to consolidate your debt? Our team will ask you questions about upcoming milestones to help determine the right mortgage term based on your unique situation and goals.
- What is your current interest rate? It is important to calculate if the reduction will offset the cost of refinancing. Is your current rate considerably higher than recent rates? Even a 1/2-1% can equate to considerable savings.
- Additional Costs: When you explore refinancing, ask the lender what fees will be required to obtain the loan. Our team of experts will explain what those costs are and help you determine if refinancing is right for you.
- Other Considerations: Know the current value of your home. Private Mortgage Insurance (PMI) is a type of insurance that you may be paying as part of your monthly payment. If your value has increased since you last took out a new mortgage, you may be able to eliminate PMI. Conversely, if your home has decreased in value since it was purchased, you may discover you will have to pay PMI for the first time if you refinance, but if you are gaining other benefits such as a combined lower payment, having the option of PMI may still be something that can help us in allowing you to meet your goals.
- Prepayment Penalties: Torrington Savings Bank never charges a Prepayment Penalty, so if you opt for a longer term loan now to keep your payments low, you can always make extra payments to principal if your financial picture changes.
