Did you know that your monthly payments could be lowered, allowing more available funds for your personal uses? The refinancing process is similar to the one you followed when you got your first mortgage. Basically, refinancing involves paying off your existing mortgage and taking out a new one. Your new mortgage could be at a more attractive interest rate, for a different term, or an entirely different type of mortgage (such as refinancing from an adjustable rate to a fixed rate mortgage).
If it has been a few years since you got your current mortgage, some of the terminology you'll hear as you consider refinancing may be similar, but other words may be new to you. You may recognize words such as credit report, but phrases like prepayment penalties or discount points may be less familiar. As you proceed through this section, refer at any time to our glossary of mortgage- and lending-related words and phrases. It will help you when you discuss your refinancing options with Midland Mortgage Corporation.
Ask yourself several questions when considering whether to refinance. How long do you plan to stay in your home? Is the current mortgage interest rate more attractive than the one you have? How much equity do you have in your home? Midland Mortgage Corporation is happy to provide you with information about interest rates, as well as any costs associated with refinancing. Learn more about the types of loan programs offered by contacting one of our loan officers at Midland Mortgage Corporation.
