The decision to refinance your mortgage can help ease the burden of costly debts and monthly installments. Some benefits of mortgage refinance include reduced interest rates, debt repayments, and mortgage consolidations.
There are many reasons why you might want to consider refinancing your mortgage. Refinancing is a good option for pulling out equity for debt consolidation, investments, and home improvements. You may wish to use the proceeds from your refinanced mortgage to pay off credit card bills and other expenses. Or, you might be trying to improve your credit score and qualify for a mortgage with a better rate. You can even refinance your existing mortgage to free up cash for savings or emergencies—a mortgage is a secured loan, so the interest is lower than that of an unsecured loan.
Refinancing also gives you the option to switch from a variable rate mortgage to a fixed rate, thus stabilizing your payments. As well, refinancing can allow you to obtain a reduced interest rate, since the interest on a fixed rate mortgage that you took several years ago may have dropped in the interim. Many people prefer a secure, fixed rate mortgage to a more unpredictable variable rate mortgage.
