Home Refinance

A change for the better

You would be surprised how refinancing can change your life!  Refinancing will not only save you money, but provide you with more comfort and security — now those are good reasons why you shouldn’t wait. We’ll even tell you when it’s better to go with a Home Equity Loan instead of a regular Mortgage Loan. Sometimes it’s better, sometimes it’s not. Leave it to our mortgage loan officers and call us today!

Ask us how to:

  • Refinance an existing mortgage
    Generally, it’s a good idea to consider refinancing whenever the current mortgage interest rate is more than one percentage point below your present mortgage rate. You can reduce your monthly payment and term, therein, reducing total payback over the life of the loan.
  • Refinance – to obtain funding
    When you refinance, you may be able to request additional loan funds to consolidate debt, buy a new car, pay for education, or do that remodeling project that you thought you couldn’t afford.

Refinance loan options include different rate structures:

  • Fixed-Rate Loans have a fixed interest rate for the life of the loan. This allows for easy budgeting because the payment is always the same.
  • Adjustable-Rate Loans have an initial start rate. You will know how much the rate can adjust over the life of the loan and the maximum amount you would have to pay in the future. If you think you will only be in the house for a few years or feel that interest rates may go down, then this may be the loan for you.
