About home refinancing
Keep in mind that our home refinance calculator provides an estimate on how much your payment will be based on the information you provide. The calculator does not take into account your overall financial situation so your actual rate and payment may be higher.
To get a more precise understanding of the comparative benefits of different loan types, speak with a loan advisor at Freedom Mortgage. Also check out our home refinance calculator FAQs that can help you decide if refinancing makes sense for you:
"Is refinancing worth it?" is a question many homeowners ask when interest rates are low. And it’s a good question! Mortgage refinances often require you to complete a new application, provide a new set of income and financial documents, and pay closing costs. You want the expense of refinancing to be worthwhile by significantly lowering your interest rate, lowering your monthly payment, or improving other terms of your loan. By refinancing, the total finance charges may be higher over the life of the loan.
That’s why we offer this free home refinance calculator. It’s a quick and simple way of getting an estimate of how much you might save on your payment each month and how much you might save in interest payments over the life of the loan. Our calculator is a great first step in your refinance journey!
When you are refinancing your home, the question to ask is "Are today’s mortgage rates low compared to your current rate?" You want the rate you may be able to get today to be significantly lower than your current rate to make refinancing your home worthwhile.
This is an important question to ask because you pay the costs of refinancing upfront and enjoy the savings over time. So if you are planning on selling your home soon after you refinance, you might not "break even" – which is the point where the savings from lowering your interest rate are equal to your closing costs.
A loan's "term" is the number of years you have to pay it back. When you refinance with a new lender, you often have to pick a term of either 15 or 30 years. If you have 20 years left on your current home loan, refinancing to a new 30 year loan can help reduce your monthly payment but may result in you paying more interest over life of your new loan. Refinancing to a 15 year loan might increase your monthly payment, but may help you save money on interest. At Freedom Mortgage, we are often able to allow our current customers to keep their remaining loan term the same when they refinance with us.
How much you pay in closing costs when you refinance depends on your personal finances, the type of home loan you choose, and your lender. Closing costs can include lender fees, discount points, and payments for homeowners insurance and property taxes. According to Freddie Mac, the average closing costs for a refinance are nearly $5,000. The actual amount of your closing costs may be higher or lower than this average.
When you are trying to understand the closing costs of a refinance, it is useful to look at the APR vs the interest rate of the loan. APR (or "annual percentage rate") helps you better understand the total cost of a refinance. When there is a large difference between the interest rate and annual percentage rate of a refinance, this can be a sign the loan comes with significant closing costs. When the difference is small, this often means the loan has fewer closing costs.
