It’s time to refinance your home before interest rates get too high. Before interest rates rise any more, you can use the Home Affordable Refinance Plan to reduce your monthly mortgage payments by thousands of dollars with super low interest rates. So, if you are looking to lower your payments, shorten the years on your mortgage or take cash equity out, now is the time.
Unknown to many people, the Home Affordable Program is geared to the middle class. If your mortgage is less than $625,000 you could qualify for the program assistance. The banks are not happy about the government making them lower your interest rate, so the program won’t last forever. Act this year to get rates as low as 3.11%. This could save you hundreds each month and thousands each year.
You can also benefit from shortening your mortgage life and save several hundred thousand, or you can take cash equity out for home improvements or a much needed vacation.
Keep-in-mind that you will still have to pay closing costs in most cases and each bank or mortgage company will have different closing costs.
