Combining several debts with your mortgage refinance removes several monthly payments from your budget and replaces them with a single, more manageable payment — often at a significant interest savings. Depending on prepayment penalties, you can even consider using the money you’re saving each month to pay down the principal balance faster.
Equity is the value of your home, less any mortgages against it. You can typically utilize up to 80% of what your home is worth. If you are currently paying higher interest rate debts, it may be worth it to consider taking some equity out as part of your next mortgage loan refinance to pay these off.
With any refinance there are typically some costs accrued in the process of closing your loan, between lender costs and third-party service providers, like appraisers and attorneys. When considering and equity take-out refinance, most clients choose to include any costs with their new mortgage balance, rather than paying for them separately.
