Mortgage Refinancing

What is refinancing?

Refinancing means renegotiating your existing mortgage loan agreement, usually to access the equity in your home, or to lower other borrowing costs by taking advantage of a lower interest rate. Refinancing can help you consolidate debt or pay for other large expenses like education or renovations. When you refinance, you select new terms for your mortgage loan agreement.

If you refinance at the end of your mortgage term, you’ll probably avoid prepayment charges. If you decide to refinance before your term is done, the prepayment charges might be relatively small compared to the savings offered by getting a new mortgage loan with a lower interest rate.

Is refinancing right for me?

Once you evaluate your goals, you can decide whether refinancing makes sense.
  • Debt consolidation. Merge higher interest debts into one manageable payment with a lower interest rate.
  • Home renovations. Get the money you need to renovate or make repairs.
  • Tuition. Cover education costs for yourself or someone else.
  • Investing. Take advantage of an investing opportunity (speak to your tax advisor first).
