Reducing Your Monthly Payments
Are getting lower monthly payments and an improved rate your main refinance goals? Then a low, fixed rate loan may be the ideal loan program for you. An ARM (Adjustable Rate Mortgage) or a fixed mortgage with a high rate are loan programs that you might want to refinance. Even as interest rates rise, a fixed rate mortgage must stay at the same, low interest rate, unlike an ARM. If you expect to live in your home for about five more years, a fixed rate loan may be an especially good option for you. But if you do plan to sell your home more quickly, you will want to consider an ARM with a low initial rate in order to achieve lower monthly payments.

Paying it off Faster
Are you wanting to fatten up your home equity faster, and pay your mortgage off more quickly? Consider refinancing to a short-term loan, like a 15-year mortgage. Your monthly payments will likely be higher than they were with your long-term mortgage, but the pay-off is: you will pay substantially less interest and can build up equity quicker. But, you could be able to switch without a bigger monthly mortgage payment if your longer term mortgage was closed a while ago, and the balance remaining is low enough. You could even make it lower!
