What is a mortgage refinance?
Refinancing is renegotiating your existing loan or applying for a new loan where you already own the property. The new mortgage terms could include a different interest rate than your existing loan agreement. It could also increase the mortgage’s amount (or balance) and the life (or amortization) of the mortgage.
What are the costs of refinancing?
While there are fees associated with refinancing (ie. prepayment penalty, appraisal fees, etc.), for many, the benefits can outweigh these costs. See a full breakdown on the costs of refinancing here.
