Mortgage Refinancing FAQs
Mortgage Refinancing FAQs
Have questions about refinancing your mortgage? Here are responses to some of the most common questions we hear.
If you have questions or would like to speak with a home loan expert about your specific situation, call 877-535-4021, Monday through Friday, 8:00 a.m. to 9:00 p.m. ET, and Saturday, 8:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. ET.
Is now the time to refinance your mortgage?It depends on your situation, including your current interest rate and how long you intend to stay in your house. Refinancing may make sense if you can lower your interest rate by at least ½ of 1%.
To get an estimate of what your new mortgage payment might be if you refinanced, or how long it would take you to recoup the closing costs, run the numbers for yourself using our Mortgage Refinancing Calculator.How much of my home equity can I use?
If you qualify, you can use up to 80% of the appraised value of your home to make home improvements. The equity you can use is based on the value of your home and how much you currently owe, and is subject to applicable state laws.What will it cost me to refinance?Just like when you got your original loan, you’ll have closing costs associated with refinancing, such as origination or appraisal, processing, and title company fees. You may have the option of rolling these costs into the loan amount to reduce the amount you pay out of pocket. Use
our Mortgage Refinancing Calculator to get an estimate of how long it will take to break even by weighing the closing costs against your monthly savings.
