How to refinance your home is often more complicated than it sounds. You may want to do it, but the process doesn't always go smoothly. Consider the following things before you decide if refinancing makes sense for you.

  • Refinancing your home can save you money, either because you get a better interest rate, or because it enables you to take equity out of your home.
  • Some people refinance as a way to avoid paying closing costs when they buy another house.
  • Refinancing is not always possible. If you have a home that is upside down, meaning you owe more than it's worth, then your lender will not allow you to refinance.
  • If your credit score has slipped since the time you originally took out your mortgage, then refinancing may be difficult or impossible. You might have to wait until you get back on track before considering and often costs money. Before going through with refinancing, consider the following:
  • Whether you are using the money now or saving it for later, you should have an idea of how exactly you are going to use your extra cash. This will help to keep you focused.
  • If you need to take out a home equity loan to refinance, remember that additional debt will affect your credit rating and also leave you vulnerable if there is ever a house market correction.
  • Refinancing can be a big decision, but with the right information and by weighing the benefits and costs you will have a better idea of what is best for your situation. Lenders offer an abundance of educational materials that explain each step of the process in detail to avoid any confusion during refinancing.

Before starting this process, estimate how much equity you have in your home and compare that to the costs of refinancing. If you don't have enough equity, refinancing won't pay off.

Refinancing your home almost always means that you'll end up with a different loan term or interest rate than the one you had before, which directly impacts how much money you save over time. Although refinancing usually lowers your monthly payment, it can also increase the overall amount of interest you pay when you refinance into a loan with a longer-term.
