Is now a good time to refinance my Mortgage Loan?
Now is a great time to refinance your home. Today’s mortgage rates are still near record lows which gives our members a great opportunity to lower their monthly payment or shorten their terms. Also, home values are at an all-time high which means equity has increased for many borrowers. That’s great news if you want to do a cash out refinance, to consolidate debt or make home improvements with a lower rate mortgage. It’s also a good time to evaluate your position to refinancing and eliminate the PMI costs you may have on your current mortgage. In most cases, closing costs can be rolled into your new loan so there is minimal out-of-pocket expense. Our Mortgage team is ready to walk you through your current mortgage situation and compare how a refinance can save you money.
What is a Home Equity Loan?
A Home Equity Loan is a cash out fixed rate loan that taps into the equity of your home. In Texas, you are allowed to cash up to 80% of the value of the home minus any existing loan secured by the home. many of our members put their equity to work with this loan option for remodeling, other home improvements or Debt Consolidation. If you would like to cash out, but have one Mortgage Loan, we have a First Lien Home Equity option. If you would like to cash out, but have a separate loan from your primary Mortgage Loan, we have a Second Lien Home Equity option. As home values continue to raise, talk to our Mortgage team to see how we can use your equity to turn your home into your dream home.
