Mortgage Refinancing

Get more out of your home

Historically low interest rates make this an especially good time for Kentucky homeowners to consider refinancing their home loan. Refinancing your mortgage at a lower interest rate can save you significant money by lowering your monthly payment or allow you to pay it off sooner.

For example, take a 30-year $200,000 loan at a 4.5% interest rate. Refinancing to a 2.25% fixed interest can save you $35,000 over the life of the loan, while refinancing it to a 15-year loan can save more than $130,000. Even when you factor in loan origination and closing cost fees, it can still be worth it to reduce your monthly mortgage or convert to a shorter loan.

If you have a home renovation in mind or need funds for another major expense, a cash out refinance can be another option to tap into the equity of your home.

Talk to a CVNB about how to take advantage of today’s low interest rates and your home loan refinance options.

Q. When should I refinance my mortgage?
A. You could consider refinancing your mortgage for several reasons, such as; Utilizing equity in your home. Meaning you owe less than what your home is worth, the difference between what you owe and the value of your home is your equity. You can refinance and take “cash out” for use. Shorten your loan term to pay it off quicker, or lengthen your loan term for a more manageable monthly payment.

If you can reduce your mortgage interest rate by 1% or more-- it may make financial sense to refinance. Example, your mortgage rate is currently 4.50%, but typical mortgage rates are currently 3.0%, the different of 1.5% is definitely an opportunity to save money when you refinance.
