Lowering Your Payments
Are your refinance goals to lower your rate and consequently your mortgage payments? In that case, applying for a low, fixed-rate loan might be a good option for you. Maybe you are presently in a loan with a high, fixed interest rate, or a mortgage loan with which the rate of interest varies : an adjustable rate mortgage (ARM). Unlike the ARM, your low fixed rate mortgage stays at a certain low rate for the life of your mortgage, even if interest rates rise. If you are not planning on moving in the near future (about five years), a fixed-rate mortgage can particularly be a great loan option. But if you do expect to move more quickly, you should consider an ARM with a low initial rate in order to achieve lower mortgage payments.

Are you dreaming of paying your loan off sooner, while beefing up your equity quicker?

The monthly payments will probably be more than they were with a long-term loan, but in exchange, that you will pay quite a bit less interest and will build up equity quicker.
