Have you ever wondered if it’s worth refinancing your home loan when the rate dips just a little, say, 1/4%?

Let’s do the math using the sample below..

  • Current Loan Balance: $580,000
  • Current Interest Rate: 6.75%
  • Payment $3,891.16 – not including tax or insurance
  • Remaining Term: 325 months (27 years)NEW REFI LOAN
  • New Rate: 6 1/2%
  • New Payment: $3,666
  • New Term: 360 months (30 Years)

New Vs. Old Savings

The monthly payment is reduced by $225. On the flip side, the loan term has been extended by 3 years. OR HAS IT?

If the new terms are accepted but the borrower simply elects to simply continue making the same payment amount as on the old loan – $3,891.16, the new refinanced loan would be paid off in 305 payments thus reducing the original remaining term by 20 payments. That’s an overall savings of $57,823 over the full term.

Numbers don’t lie. If anyone wants truly pay their home loan off sooner, when refinance opportunities exists, this is a really good way to do it.
