Knowing all about Refinancing and when to refinance is our specialty. Yes, it is true that some situations are better than others to refinance. So, when is the best time to refinance then?

Lower Your Monthly Payment

If your interest rate is higher than the current interest rate, refinancing to a lower rate could save you hundreds of dollars per month. You could save so much money per month on the house that you already make payments to just by taking advantage of a lower rate. Amazing stuff here. (Of course, this is all subject to your credit score and income)

Shorten Your Loan Term

If you are ready to knock some years off the life of your loan, refinancing into a shorter term can save you money on interest over the life of your loan. If you have equity or you’ve owned your home for a few years, this might be the right fit for you. Or you could take advantage of shortening your loan term and pay a little more each month if you don’t have tons of equity.
