Refinancing your Mortgage Loan
Refinancing may refer to the replacement of an existing debt obligation with a debt obligation under different terms. The terms and conditions of
refinancing may vary widely by country, province or state, based on several economic factors such as inherent risk, projected risk, political stability of a nation,
currency stability, banking regulations, borrower’s credit worthiness, and credit rating of a nation. In the United States, a common form of refinancing
is for a place of primary residency mortgage.
Refinance & “3xYs”
Why Refinance Occur
If the replacement of debt occurs under financial distress, refinancing might be referred to as debt restructuring or modification.
A mortgage loan (debt) might be refinanced for various reasons:
- 1) To take advantage of a better interest rate thereby reducing your monthly payment or your term.
- 2) To consolidate (combine) other debt(s) into one loan for a potentially longer or shorter term (contingent on interest rate differential and fees)
- 3) To reduce the monthly repayment amount often for a longer term (contingent on interest rate differential and fees)
- 4) To reduce or alter risk e.g. switching from a adjustable (variable) rate to a fixed rate loan
- 5) To free up cash for needs such as starting a business, home improvements, etc. often for a longer term (contingent on interest rate differential and fees)
Refinancing for reasons 2, 3, and 5 are usually undertaken by homeowners or borrowers who are in financial difficulty in order to reduce their monthly repayment obligations, with the penalty that they will take longer to pay off their debt.
In the context of personal (as opposed to corporate) finance, refinancing multiple debts makes management of the debt easier.
If high-interest debt, such as credit card debt, is consolidated into the home mortgage, the borrower is able to pay off the remaining debt at mortgage rates which are often lower over a longer period.
For home mortgages in the United States, there may be tax advantages available with refinancing, particularly if one does not pay Alternative Minimum Tax.

To Get a Lower Monthly Mortgage Payment At TFC Tricont Mortgage, even a small reduction to your interest rate can result in a significant lower monthly payment. Besides, refinancing is a good way to stop paying too much money every month when you do not have to. Refinancing can also get you a lower monthly payment by:
1) Lowering your interest rate
2) Changing your rising adjustable rate loan into a low fixed rate mortgage
3) Reducing the term of your current mortgage
Refinancing to Get Access to Cash Many homeowners have equity (money) in their home that has accumulated over the years. By refinancing, you can get the money you need and at the same time:
1) Pay off your high interest debts like car loans or credit cards
2) Perform home improvements or pay your regular bills
3) Pay for your child’s education
4) Get seed or growth money for your business
Eliminate High-Interest Debts like Auto Loan and Credit Cards Auto loans, credit cards and other revolving debts usually carry high compound interest rates that are usually (15% and higher). Unlike revolving debts, a mortgage have a much lower non-compounded interest rate and are often tax deductible*. Therefore paying off your credit card and other higher-interest rates debts through refinancing will save you thousands in monthly payments. Change an Adjustable Rate Mortgage (ARM) into a Low Fixed-Rate Mortgage Many homeowners took an ARM (Adjustable Rate Mortgage) when interest rates were high because starting rates on adjustable rate mortgages are usually a little lower than those of other mortgages. These homeowners are now taking advantages of today’s low interest rates by refinancing into a Low Fixed Rate mortgage and significantly reducing their monthly payments. Your Credit Rating can Improve By paying off your credit cards, auto and other high interest rate debts, your credit scores can improve because the credit rating agencies recognizes paying off debts as an act of taking financial responsibility.
