Refinanceing with national city mortgage


With current interest rates as low as they are, now is as good a time as ever to refinance your home. When rates drop to record or even significantly lower levels, it is an opportune time to refinance your home for a lower rate. But refinancing is not just for times when rates are extremely low. It is still a viable option for a number of reasons.

1. Low payments each month
If the rate is lower than your current rate, then your payments will be lower. It’s just simple math. So keep an eye out for falling rates or if you financed your home in a high rate period, any dip in the market can be beneficial for you. When you refinance you can refinance for the length of time you have left on your existing loan thus making your payments lower but not extending the time you need to pay.

2. You need money for other things
Paying for college or making a large purchase like a car can be a reason to refinance your home. If the rates are lower, and you refinance you can get the difference of your payments in a sum to pay off debt or make a purchase.

3. Shortening the length of your loan
If the difference in the rates is significant enough, it can help you to shorten the length of your loan while also decreasing your monthly payments. This could help you own your home at a faster rate and lessen the amount of interest you accrue.

4. Change from an ARM to a Fixed Rate Mortgage
If you initially had an Adjustable Rate Mortgage and the rates drop lower than your rates, you may want to lock in the low rate by switching to a Fixed Rate Mortgage. This brings stability to your payments at a lower rate.
