When done properly under the right circumstances, loan refinancing can be very beneficial and may save you $1000’s each year. However, there are drawbacks involved - namely the cost. The reasons for refinancing should be legitimate and the long term savings should definitely outweigh the short-term costs. When to refinance Your lender’s rate isn’t as competitive as other lenders in the market There is a major change your financial situation. You need funds for renovations, invest in another property or you need cash out You want to fix your home loan as interest rates are rising You want to consolidate other personal loans or credit card debt (which usually has a high interest rate around 20%) and only want one monthly repayment When NOT to refinance You are planning on moving or selling the property soon You have high exit fees on your exiting home loan Your credit history has suffered with outstanding debts, this will make it less likely you’ll get a good rate I have helped clients save over $500.00 per month on repayments with refinancing.
