Making Your Payments Lower

Are your refinance goals to lower your rate and consequently your mortgage payments? If so, applying for a low, fixed-rate loan might be a good choice for you. Maybe you currently hold a fixed-rate mortgage with a higher rate, or maybe you have an ARM — adjustable rate mortgage — where the interest rate varies. Different that the ARM, your low fixed rate mortgage stays at a certain low rate for the life of the mortgage loan, even when interest rates rise. If you plan to stay in your home for at least five more years, a fixed rate loan may be an especially good fit for you. But if you do plan to sell your home more quickly, you should consider an ARM with a low initial rate in order to achieve reduced mortgage payments.
