Refinancing home loans is much the same process as closing the loan the first time around, but in refinancing there is a major difference. This time the homeowner is more experienced and may know more about what he or she is looking for. For example, a homeowner who initially had an adjustable rate mortgage will refinance for a fixed rate mortgage. Or a homeowner with a an interest rate of 9% and a term of 30 years will refinance for a 5% rate and a 15 year term.
Also, homeowners who are interested in any of the above reasons and would also like money for debt consolidation, home improvement or large purchases can refinance for the total of their original loan as well as substantial amount over that total. This is often referred to as a cash-out refinance. This type of refinancing is excellent for paying off debt that has been incurred on loans or credit cards with high interest rates.
The best time to refinance is usually when interest rates are 2% less than the rates used to close your loan. Even if rates are slightly less than 2%, 1.5% for example, a homeowner can still save but it would take a longer period of time for those savings to materialize.
