It really depends on each homeowners' individual situation, but in general, refinancing into a different rate could help save up to thousands over the life of the loan. Refinancing into a rate as little as 1% lower than your current rate can make a difference and if you're planning on staying in your home for a while, even a .5% difference could potentially lower your monthly payment.
There are many factors that determine the outcome of a refinance so if you want to know specifically how it would apply to you, we suggest speaking with an expert for the most accurate results. Keep in mind though, there are other reasons to refinance other than to save money. Many homeowners have refinanced their homes to get some cash or even refinance into a different loan type that better fits their current financial situation.
When refinancing, some of the fees that are associated with a refi are called "closing costs", which are typically between 2%-5% of the loan amount. For example, if you're refinancing a $100,000 mortgage, the closing costs are expected to be between $2,000 - $5,000. These costs are to pay for the different services that go into the loan process such as:
- Credit report
- Origination fee/broker fees
- Title work
- Recording fees
- Appraisal fee
- Processing and underwriting
- 6 months -1 year of pre-paid taxes and homeowners insurance
A cash-out refinance is an option for homeowners who have built up equity in their home and want to tap into that equity. With a cash-out refinance, your current home loan will be replaced with a new mortgage that's higher than your existing loan balance. The difference then goes to you in cash.
There are several reasons for choosing a cash-out refinance such as paying off high-interest credit card balances, paying for home renovations, or even simply cashing in on the equity you've gained and putting it into savings.
The usual limit for withdrawing cash with a cash-out refinance is 80% of the home's equity. For example, if your home is valued at $500,000 and your current mortgage balance is $200,000, your home's equity is $300,000. The maximum amount of cash you'd be able to take out is $240,000, which is 80% of $300,000.
The exact amount of cash you'll be able to pull out will be based on your individual circumstances and may vary from lender to lender.
