Refinancing Your Home: FAQs
Why are refinance rates higher?
In most cases, refinance rates are not significantly higher than rates for purchase loans. Refinance rates can vary between lenders, however. Some may have higher interest rates but lower fees, which can affect the APR (also known as the annual percentage rate, which includes the interest rate, lender fees, and other refinance charges).
Is it cheaper to refinance with my current lender?
It depends. While it is sometimes cheaper to refinance with your current lender, it’s also common for other lenders to offer better interest rates and fees that decrease your costs. If you’re refinancing your home, you should research different refinance lenders and compare rates to find the best deal.
Can I refinance my mortgage with no closing costs?
Yes. There are home refinancing options with no closing costs, which are known as “no closing cost refinances.” However, while no closing cost refinances save you money up-front, they aren’t always the most affordable option long-term. No closing cost refinances charge you a higher interest rate in order to waive the closing costs, meaning you could end up with a larger overall mortgage bill.
What is the average closing cost to refinance a mortgage?
Closing costs to refinance a mortgage are typically 2-5% of your mortgage. Most homeowners pay $3,000-$5,000 in closing costs to refinance a mortgage.
How does refinancing work with equity?
A borrower needs a certain amount of equity in their home to refinance. Most rate and term refinance are allowed with 5% equity in the home (95% LTV). Others, who do a cash-out refinance, will have at least 20% equity in their homes when they refinance, and they can use the refinancing to cash out on that equity. In some cases, you may lose equity when you refinance. In others, you can use your equity to pay the closing costs for your refinancing.
