With mortgage rates at historic record lows, the country is going through a refinance boom. After the Federal Reserve Board lowered interest rates to zero percent, mortgage rates started tumbling down to historic record lows. There are many reasons why homeowners may need to refinance. 

  • The main reason why homeowners refinance is so they can lower their payments by getting a new mortgage at lower mortgage rates
  • It may be due to a divorce
  • The ex-spouse may want his or her name off the mortgage note and tile of the property
  • It may be due to co-borrowers needing to get out as borrowers
  • It may be for needed cash for repairs and/or other family emergencies
  • It may be for eliminating FHA MIP and refinancing the loan to a conventional loan
  • However, the most common reason homeowners refinance is due to get a better mortgage rate

Lower mortgage rates mean lower monthly payments which mean tens of thousands in savings over the course of the loan term.
