FICO credit score of 742, what are my options on refinancing a home?

I'm currently about 5 years into a 30-year FRM at 6.25%, paying roughly $1,700 on an original loan amount of 240k on a 285k house, now worth 265k. I believe my LTV is now roughly 70-80%, not quite sure as I do not have it in front of me. PMI is paid off, and I want to get a better rate, are some options? Only debt I have is the mortgage and around 4k in credit card bills, I make roughly 85k a year. by ron.bu_823_821 from Glendale, Arizona. Dec 16th 2011 Reply

As long as your current value stays at or below the 80% mark you are good to refinance with out getting back into PMI. If there is enough room in the LTV you may be able to wrap your costs into the loan as well. ( You would still be able to do this if LTV is over 80% you would incur PMI.) Rates are much lower than what you have. Please contact me at 623.202.4449 if you would like a quote or have more questions.

You are in luck. Today, rates are hovering in the high 3s / low 4s for a 30 year fixed rate mortgage. 15 year rates are even better. Now would be the best time to rid yourself of your overpriced loan. You will want to talk to a Licensed Mortgage Banker/Broker, like myself to be able to look at all of the options that are available to you. We have access to all of the major programs out there. You may find that taking a shorter term may keep you payments about the same, but pay your loan of many years sooner. I'd be happy to work with you and show you all of your opptions. Feel free to contact me at 480-889-9000. Nova Home Loans has been leading the way for over 30 years.

The P&I payment for a $240K home with a 30-year FRM is $1,478, so I assume that the $1,700/mo. you are now paying includes at least property taxes, if not homeowners insurance as well. If this is correct, your loan balance, unless you have made extra payments during the past 5 years, should be about $224K. At a $265K FMV, your home's LTV should be roughly 84.5%, putting you back into PMI territory, but at 85% or less it should only be $50 to $60 monthly. With your 742 FICO score, you should be able to get a new loan in the hi 3s or low 4s. At a 4% interest rate on a $224K loan amount for 30 years, your monthly P&I payment would be $1.069, saving you $409/mo. compared to the $1,478 you should currently be paying. I would love to talk to you about your refinance, but I only do loans in CA. Your best bet is to get with a savvy, non-bank loan officer in AZ who knows how to creatively structure loans.
