Here are some more great reasons.

1. Refinancing can lower your rate and payment.
This is one of the most common reasons for a home mortgage refinance. If your current interest rate is higher than what is currently available in the market, it is probably a good idea to see how much you could save by refinancing. There are no-cost and low-cost options that could save you money with little to no investment.

2. Refinance to convert your adjustable rate into a fixed rate.
Adjustable rate mortgage (ARM) loans are a great way to ease into your mortgage payments, especially if you are a first time buyer or if you need lower payments initially. Eventually, if you decide you will stay in your home longer, you may want to consider refinancing your mortgage into a long term fixed rate loan. Doing so will give you peace of mind, knowing that your rate and payment will not change for a set period of time.

3. Refinance your interest-only loan into a fully-amortized loan.
Like ARMs, interest-only loans are a great way to minimize your mortgage payments at the beginning; however, because you are not paying any principal, your loan balance does not decrease. If you plan to keep your home long term, refinancing can help start paying off your loan. Often, you can refinance your interest-only loan to a 30 year fixed rate loan while keeping your payments about the same.

4. Convert your 30 year loan to a shorter-term loan.
Sometimes plans change and the home (and loan) that you thought you were going to have for awhile turns from a permanent situation into a temporary one. If you are planning to sell your home sooner than you thought and no longer need a long-term rate, then you may consider converting your 30 year fixed to either an ARM or a 3/1, 5/1, or 7/1 loan program, which often have lower rates and payments.

5. Take cash out to consolidate your debt.
Leveraging the equity in your home is one of the smartest ways you can make your money can work for you. Use the cash from your home to pay off higher interest, non tax-deductible credit cards, student loans, or medical bills. By consolidating your debts, you can enjoy the benefit of having only one payment each month, and in most cases your overall monthly outflow decreases.

6. Take cash out for home improvements.
What better way to use your hard earned equity than to invest it back into your home with repairs or home improvements? Whether you would like to fix your leaky roof or update your kitchen, you can tap into your home’s equity and have a tax deductible* way to tackle your projects. *consult with your tax advisor

7. Take cash out to purchase investment property.
With home prices and interest rates at the lowest they’ve been in years, if you’ve been thinking about buying a vacation home or an investment property, now may be a great time to take action. Tap into your home’s equity and use the cash for your down payment, home improvements, or for any reason at all.

8. Remove mortgage insurance.
If you purchased your home with less than 20% down, chances are you’re paying private mortgage insurance (pmi). Refinancing will help you eliminate the extra expense if you’ve paid down your loan balance and/or have seen an increase in your home’s value to a point where you have at least 20% equity in your home, or a loan-to-value (LTV) of 80% or less.
