Clients often call me with this question, “Is it worth breaking our current mortgage for a better mortgage term and interest rate”. Each case varies significantly as there are many factors to consider.
When deciding whether to refinance your mortgage into a new term and interest rate there are two important questions you must ask yourself. Firstly, how soon would you like to realize the savings? Secondly, how much longer do you expect to reside in your current home?
If you decide to refinance but do not keep your home long enough you could lose money. However, if you keep your home beyond the break-even point, which pinpoints the time when your refinance will become profitable, you will realize savings. Other factors to consider include your current rate, the time to maturity, existing lenders’ current rates, the amount of equity in your home and the cost of breaking your existing mortgage.
Working with over 30 lenders allows us to access not only the best rates, but also the most appropriate products for each individual refinancing situation. We will show you the best ways to reduce the penalty and structure your refinance in a manner that saves you both time and money, ultimately improving your overall financial portfolio.
