Want to Refinance your Home Mortgage

By: jeremy

Refinancing mortgage home loans is quite different from Second mortgage loan or home equity loan as discussed earlier. Here you are replacing you previous mortgage home loan with new one putting your home as collateral and paying closing cost and fees for previous loan.

Before refinancing your mortgage loan you should be careful of few things:

-Not to take out a new loan that comes with prepayment penalties.

-Must be careful of seasoning periods where most lenders are adding few clauses into your contract like you can not refinance unless or until you spend more than 1 years in your home, Thus preventing you from refinancing too early.

-Early pay-off penalties - Some lenders are charging such fees or fines that you have to pay to replace your previous mortgage with new one. So you have to pay these penalties before taking out a new loan.


Break Even Point

It's obvious that you have to pay more than you save at the start of loan
But the time will come when you will easily recover all of your loan refinancing or closing fees and penalties.

Working out break even point (Comparing much you save per month with the total costs) will help you predicting the number of months left to reach break even.

So before going for mortgage refinancing you should ask for few tips and advices because lots of policies are available there.
