Do I have to use my current lender to refinance my loan?

For people who are thinking about refinancing their mortgage loan, there are many questions they may have. One of the biggest questions is if they have to use the lender that they currently have. The answer is a big NO. You absolutely do not have to use the same lender that you have. A lot of people refinance specifically so that they can get a new lender. A new lender can offer you lower rates than they currently have and have different terms that you may like better. When refinancing, you typically will pay much less in interest than you would on your current loan. It is important to understand exactly what refinancing is. Basically, refinancing is where you get a new loan that replaced your old one.

There are many things that you will want to consider before you refinance your mortgage loan. The first thing you want to look at is the rate of the loan. You don’t want the interest rate being higher than the loan that you are trying to clear up. Another thing you want to look at in regards to the interest rate is that the rate is static, not fluctuating. If it’s not fluctuating that means the monthly payments will be different every month and can be a headache not knowing how much the bill is going to be.

You also need to consider how long it will take you to pay off the loan based on the monthly payments. So when you go to refinance, you can choose a loan that you pay off quick or one that takes years to pay off. Obviously, if you choose the quick one, you will pay much more every month in order to pay off the mortgage. Most people who are deciding to refinance their loan will choose a longer term.

Finally, there is the cash-out option while refinancing. In the event that your home has equity after your mortgage refinancing, this is way that people can get extra cash for various things. However, if your property decreases in value things can turn bad for you.
