Refinancing a mortgage means paying off an existing loan and replacing it with a new one. There are many reasons why homeowners refinance:
Since refinancing can cost between 3% and 6% of a loan's principal and as with an original mortgage requires an appraisal, title search, and application fees, it's important for a homeowner to determine whether refinancing is a smart financial decision.
*IMPORTANT NOTICE: Never trust wiring instructions sent via email. Cyber criminals are hacking email accounts and sending emails with fake wiring instructions. These emails are convincing and sophisticated. Always independently confirm wiring instructions in person or via a telephone call to a trusted and verified phone number. Never wire money without double-checking that the wiring instructions are correct.
