Refinance, Tips to getting a lower Mortgage Rate

Refinance Tips
  • Determine how long you plan on staying in your home
    A thirty year fixed loan is a good option if you are not planning on moving from your home.

    If you are planning to move with a period of time, you may consider a loan that has a fixed rate for a period of time, and then changes into an adjustable rate mortgage after that period. You will get the benefit of a fixed rate loan and will get a break on the rate because your are sharing the risk of rate adjustments in the future.

    Example, you are planning to move within three years, refinance a loan with a fixed rate for three years, that adjusts after that period could save you 2.125% or more annually, when compared to a thirty year fixed rate loan.
