Making Your Payments Lower
Are your refinance goals to lower your rate and consequently your mortgage payments? In that case, getting a low, fixed-rate loan might be a good option for you. Perhaps you currently have a higher rate fixed rate mortgage, or perhaps you have an ARM — adjustable rate mortgage — where the interest rate can vary. Even if interest rates rise, a fixed rate mortgage loan will stay at the same, low interest rate, unlike an ARM. If you plan to live in your home for at least five more years, a fixed rate loan may be an especially good option for you. On the other hand, if you do see yourself moving in the near future, an ARM mortgage with a low initial rate might be the ideal way to lower your monthly payments.

Is your refinance goal mainly to pull out some of your home equity for an infusion of cash? Perhaps you want to make home improvements, take care of your college kid's tuition, or go on a an Alaskan cruise.

If you have the equity in your home for it, paying off other debt with higher interest than the rate on your mortgage (for example: home equity loans, student loans, or credit cards) means you can possible save several hundred dollars monthly.

Do you need to build up equity more quickly, and have your mortgage paid off faster? In that case, you want to find out about refinancing to a short term mortgage loan - such as a fifteen-year loan. You will be paying less interest and growing your home equity faster, although your monthly payments will generally be bigger than you have been paying. However, if you've held your existing 30 year loan for a long time and the remaining balance is somewhat low, you may be able to do this without increasing your monthly payment — it's even possible to save!
