Is the time is right for mortgage refinancing?

Expert advice can help you realize your financial goals

A financial plan consists of many moving parts. With that in mind, it’s crucial not only to review those elements regularly, but to do so with someone you trust to help you understand your options and determine a plan best-suited for you and your goals.

What does refinancing look like?

With the current state of the economy, one benefit of refinancing your mortgage now is taking advantage of lower interest rates, explains Allison Rupitz, Senior Financial Advisor at the Valley First Orchard Plaza branch.

As mortgage refinancing can look different for everybody, the knowledgeable team takes a proactive approach, adapted to each client’s unique situation.

By running comparables, calculations can help determine whether you should pay a penalty to adopt a low interest rate, if you’ll be able to make up the cost in one term.

It’s important to note that refinancing isn’t always about the term and rate. Renegotiating your existing mortgage loan can allow you to pull equity out of your property as well.

Weighing the pros and cons of each options, clients have the information they need to make the best choice for their needs and circumstances.
