Refinancing a mortgage is a method of replacing your current mortgage with a new mortgage. You may want a better rate, lower your monthly payment, consolidate some debt. Refinancing can be done during the term of the mortgage or at the end of the term if you want to explore options instead of renewing with same terms. Mortgage Refinance, instead of renewal only makes sense if you can obtain a better rate, get funds in hand or want to change amortization to pay off your mortgage quicker.
Things to consider when refinancing…
- Credit Score: Most Lenders have a minimum beacon score requirement. it determines whether you can refinance with the same level of lender(prime or subprime).
- Income: Are you able to meet the income requirements and provide income documents to qualify with a new lender?
- GDS/TDS: Do you meet the Gross Debt & Total Debt Ratio Criteria. You should factor in additional payments reporting on your credit bureau such as: loans, lease payments, credit card, co-signed loans.
- Market Rates: If you qualify, will you get a better rate than your current?
