Balance on my mortgage is $61,365.00

interest rate of 4.8750% planning to pay it off in 2 years, does it make sense to refinance at this time? by m.r.ibera201 from , California. Oct 9th 2020 Reply

Hello,A refinance has some fixed costs like underwriting, escrow, title, appraisal, etcetera that you would likely not overcome or recoup in just 2 years, on what is a fairly small mortgage. That smaller loan will likely not generate enough potential Lender Credit to overcome the costs either. Congrats on almost paying off your mortgage!

No, it really doesn't make sense. Even if you were to drop your note rate 2.00%, you would only save about the same as you would spend for the refinance. But with a loan so small, most lenders are going to hit you with pricing adjustments so that is likely you would not even be able to break even. With you plans to pay off so close, I'd just keep making the payments until you actually do pay it off. ~ Bert Carpenter, The LoansA2z Team of NEXA Mortgage ~ NMLS 40586 ~ Licensed in Arizona, California, Georgia, Oregon, and Washington.
