Rates are Low; Refi or Move?
Many of our clients are asking for advice regarding the historically low interest rates we are enjoying right now. Granted, this is an amazing opportunity for many of you, and if you currently have a rate that is over 4 or 5%, we should really have a conversation. The question you will want to consider is this: what is your plan for the next 5 years?
Many of you are planning to stay in your home for another 5-7 years. Perhaps you just recently moved or you have no plans to move for many years. If this is where you see yourself, certainly, a refinance might be in order. Rates are indeed amazing!
On the other hand, if you are planning a move in the next 5 years, you would be wise to give us a call to discuss the implications of a refinance before jumping into the process. Refinancing is not without costs associated. Many times, these costs can be wrapped into the new loan, but they are still costs you will eventually pay. Because of this, we will want to evaluate the savings versus the cost of the refinance and determine the best financial move for you and your future.
We have a fantastic loan specialist who is happy to chat over these details with you, so do not hesitate to reach out if you have questions about your specific situation. We want to help you to make wise decisions where your home and loan are concerned and we are always here to help!
