Are you thinking about refinancing your home?  Maybe you’re wondering what circumstances make refinancing a good idea.  Well, we’re looking at three compelling reasons to refinance your home.
Your credit has gotten much better – You’ve been paying your bills on time, your debt ratio has gone down, and your payment history is now clean as a whistle.  Congratulations!
When your credit score goes up, it’s time to see if your interest rate can go down.  Even a quarter percentage point shaved off an interest rate can measurably decrease your payment and save you money each month.
You have a once-in-a-lifetime expense: Obviously you can refinance your home more than once.  A once-in-a-lifetime expense refers to  a time-sensitive expense such as college tuition or medical bills.  Oftentimes, a refinance can be the most affordable way to pay these debts as a new home loan is almost guaranteed to have a lower interest rate.
You want to increase the value of your home – There are several home renovation projects that can increase the value of your home and provide a real return-on-investment should you decide to sell.  A second (or third) bathroom, a  finished basement, or a larger kitchen are all great examples of improvements that will increase the value of your home.
