Frequently Asked Questions

When does it make sense to refinance?

Reasons for refinancing your mortgage include lowering your payment, shortening your term or using the equity you’ve built up over time to get cash back out of your home. Whether it makes sense to refinance your home depends on a number of factors. Do you have enough equity built up in your home? Are interest rates lower now than they were when you first got your home loan? Do you plan to stay in your home for many years?

Talk to a Home Loan Expert or use our refinance calculator to see if refinancing your home can help you meet your goal.

What are the advantages of a shorter repayment period?

You’ll be able to own your house sooner than you would with your current mortgage. This may put you in a better financial situation down the road, while saving you quite a bit on interest.

What are the disadvantages?

Just like lengthening your loan term decreases your monthly payment, shortening your loan term means increasing your monthly payment. Use our mortgage amortization calculator or our easy-to-use refinance calculator to see what your new term and payments could be.
