Reasons to Refinance

We’ve been covering the benefits of getting a home loan at the Lake of the Ozarks right now because rates are near a three-year low! However, refinancing your current home can be just as important as getting a new loan when you see that the rates are low. Team Lasson can help you with a refinance loan anywhere in the United States. Here are a few reasons to refinance right now while the interest rates are doing so well.

#1. Interest Rates

This is primarily the first reason to refinance a home and plays a huge role in why NOW is the time to refinance. Just reducing your interest rate by 1% can save you hundreds of dollars a month on your mortgage payment, but it can also save you thousands of dollars over the life of your home loan in interest.

#2. Home Equity

Another reason to refinance your home loan is because you have seen the equity in your home increase. The average equity across mortgaged properties is 32.8%. This number is well above the amount needed to make refinancing a wise money-saving option.

#3. Getting Rid of Private Mortgage Insurance (PMI)

PMI can get extremely expensive, and in some cases, it can add over $100 to your monthly mortgage payment. As long as you have at least 20% equity in your home, refinancing can be a quick and easy way to get rid of PMI as well as most likely get a lower rate and save even more money on your monthly payment.

#4. Tackle Home Improvement Projects

Do you have a home improvement project that you want to get started on or some other large expense you have been delaying? If you have enough equity in your home you could do a cash-out refinance and get the cash you need.
