Refinance my home at 5.75%

Refinancing a house currently, have a rate of 5.75% with 27 years left on the mortgage. LTV of around 86%. Home is currently worth 255k. Credit has been stable (between 780 and 790) since three years ago, but rates are low and I wanted to see if this would be beneficial. I am paying PMI currently and was wondering if the costs of a new refinance still be less than the new rate I would get. Thanks. by jared._403_434 from Madison, Wisconsin. Nov 30th 2011 Reply

there are some diffrent ways to handle that, the biggest peice would be to loose the monthly pmi.... there are some programs available that we could drop the rate and utilze which would save you money... additionally if you wanted to take a 25yr term instead you wouldnt be going back to a 30yr program... you can call me to discuss the details..... thanks john 913-928-6187

In addition to the previous response I would also like to point out that the pmi quote on a 25 yr mortgage would also be cheaper. It is worth your while to pursue this further.

Your basic parameters look good for you to seriously consider doing something. You need to let a licensed professional review a full application to make any accurate assessments, but I'd probably look at a standard one loan 20-year fixed with a no monthly PMI. This is possible, even though you estimate over 80% loan-to-value. Call me to learn how at 651-552-3681. I am based in St Paul, but also do a lot of loans in WI. click on my name to the left to learn more.

Jared, By refinancing you stand to save somewhere around $175 -$200 a month if you were to take a new 30 year fixed rate. Although avoiding PMI on the new loan is ideal, it might not be practical for you given your current loan to value. You would have to put about $15,000 into the transaction to avoid PMI. So essentially you would be just refinancing the rate. The PMI cost per month should stay about the same - might even go down a bit. Given your situation I believe a new 30 year fixed is more beneficial than say a 25 year fixed. The reason is the interest rate is exactly the same. You can always make a 25 year or 20 year payment (to pay it off in 25 or 20 years) but you don't have to. This gives you flexibility in case your cash flow fluctuates. The cost to refinance will range somewhere between $1,700 and $2,000 in Wisconsin. Since you'd be saving about $200 per month, it would take you 10 months to recoup the costs. Therefore if you plan on staying in the home much longer than 1 year - refinancing makes sense. There are other options and structures available - for instance no closing costs. I would be happy to explain all your options if you care to look into this further. I can be reached at 262 -754-4017. My name is Paul Kozak with Assured Mortgage, Inc. We are a Better Business Bureau A+ rated mortgage company in Brookfield.

Jared,It really depends on the length you plan on staying in yout place on if the cost of refinancing would be worth it. You can always go for a no closing refinance if you do not plan on staying in the place for long which would make it worth it either way. In this case your rate will be a little higher but your time to recoup the cost will be instant since there are none. Please feel free to call me if you would like to discuss this option and others: 612-607-9714Conrad

You may want to consider doing a 27 year term and whether or not you have PMI on your new loan and how much will be determined by the new value and whether or not you want to bring cash to close. Your savings should outweigh the costs fairly quickly. Thank you.
