While refinancing your mortgage may seem like a great opportunity for you to lower your monthly mortgage payments and reduce your debt, make sure to use a mortgage calculator and calculate if refinancing your mortgage will actually save you in the long run.

  • You Want to shorten the length of years on your mortgage.
  • You need to get out of an adjustable-rate (ARM) or interest-only mortgage
  • Want to create additional cash flow each month with your savings.

    • You plan on moving within a year.
    • You haven’t made timely payments on your mortgage within the last 12 months.
    • You are upside-down on your mortgage and owe more than your property is worth. It may be difficult to be approved for a refinanced mortgage.
