The 2% Rule Many CPA's across America advise their clients to refinance their present mortgage when they can reduce their interest rate by at least 2%, and/or shorten the term remaining to pay off the mortgage.
Reasons to Finance
There are many good reasons to refinance your current mortgage, or get a second mortgage and pull equity out of your home. Here are just a few.
1. Adding structural additions or improvements to your home.
2. Get a lower mortgage rate and
reduce interest costs.
3. Obtaining funds for investment
4. College tuition for your children. 5. Paying off other debt, such as credit cards, in order to reduce your total monthly outlay.
Consider The Following
When selecting a Home Improvement Loan consider all of the following:
1. Minimum & Maximum loan limits.
2. Terms (The shorter the term the lower the overall finance charge/higher monthly payment, longer the term the less the monthly payment/the
greater the overall finance charge).
3. Loan type's: Home Equity, HELOC's, FHA 203K, Cash Out Refinance, Secured Consumer loans such as Retail Installment Obligation (RIO's), and Unsecured RIO (loan terms from 12 months).
4. Interest Rate and loan costs. For example: A no closing cost HELOC at prime or prime plus 1/2 may be tax deductible, and may be used to draw upon for FUTURE Home improvement projects with no "out of pocket" loan charges.
Improving your home
can increase its value. Investing wisely can help create a larger net worth. Both could pay off in retirement benefits for you. Be careful. Don't risk the security of your home on frivolous spending.
