Mortgage Rates Tic Up from March Lows

tick

While interest rates have ticked up from their recent lows in March of this year, mortgage rates are still at their best levels in over a year.

Depending on when you bought your home or refinanced last, it may be worth looking into refinancing? Apart from interest rates alone, my rules of thumb to consider when refinancing are:

  • How long do you expect to remain in your home?

 

  • As refinancing is never “Free” we need to determine how long it takes to “payoff” your one-time fees associated with your loan via monthly mortgage savings.

 

  • If costs can be covered by your savings within two years or 24 months of mortgage payments, I believe refinancing may be worth considering.

 

  • ***Does refinancing make sense for you?
