Best time to take action on refi?

If rates are only going to increase through the year, what are some tips on trying to get a good rate on refi? My current rate is 4.17 and I owe 422,599, value is $520,900. I would like to lower my payment, not really interested int taking out money/cash. by dolusachak966 from Bronx, New York. Oct 15th 2018 Reply

The best time to refinance is whenever it makes sense. Current 30-yr fixed rates (as of this posting) are hovering around 4.875%, while 15-years rates are around 4.50%. So your current rate is better than what you'd get a new loan at. Stretching the loan back out, for example maybe you have 22-years left, but go back to a 30-yr could possible lower your payment. I suggest contacting a mortgage broker in your area, and giving them a few more details on your situation and your desired goal. They can go over things and see if today's makes sense.
