Are increasing mortgage rates a reason to hold off refinancing a home?

-Today’s mortgage rates need watching and concerns have prompted some home sellers and buyers to delay their plans. Many homeowners who have been planning to refinance are also reconsidering, but, “Is not refinancing right now the best decision?” asks Marc Coons, the Paso Robles mortgage consultant, who also provides refinancing assistance.

“The final decision to refinance or not is completely up to the homeowner,” says Coons, “but taking a deeper look at why they were thinking about refinancing can help.” The top reasons that homeowners consider refinancing include:

  • Having access to cash for any number of reasons which can include consolidating credit account balances, making needed improvements to the home, paying off medical bills, or starting a business.
  • To remove a former spouse or partner from the loan.
  • To change the terms of a loan or the type of loan.
  • To get a better rate.

Just as owning a home is an investment in the future, refinancing a home, especially in Paso Robles where property values are high, can also be an investment. Consider, for example:

  • Consolidating credit account balances: The difference between the interest paid on the credit accounts and the interest on a refinancing loan can still mean considerable savings to the family budget.
  • Making needed improvements: Critical improvements, such as replacing an aged roof, can affect the value of the home and prevent further structural damage from the weather and pests. Remodeling to add living or work space might still be a wise choice, especially if that remodel has the potential to generate additional income or save money for an elderly parent.
  • Refinancing to remove a former spouse or partner from the loan is sometimes necessary. Even when the court orders one person to make a portion of the mortgage payments there’s no guarantee those payments will be made. Not only is there a risk of foreclosure, anyone whose name is on the loan or the deed has a legal financial interest in the home, risking the home if the person is sued.
  • Changing the terms of a loan or getting a better rate might be valid reasons for refinancing, even in the face of the current interest rates.
