Some compelling reasons to refinance include:

  • an increase in your credit score or home value
  • the availability of more favorable loan terms

Everyone’s situation is unique, and many factors must be considered before making the decision to refinance.

Items to consider include:

  • Interest rate trends
  • Current loan rates and terms
  • Available alternatives
  • Motivations for refinancing
  • Cautions against refinancing
