Making Your Payments Lower
Are getting reduced mortgage payments and an improved rate your main refinance goals? Then a low, fixed rate loan may be your best option. An ARM (Adjustable Rate Mortgage) or a high fixed rate mortgage are loans that you may want to refinance. Different that the ARM, your low fixed-rate mortgage stays at a certain low rate for the life of your loan, even if interest rates rise. If you are planning to live in your home for at least five more years, a fixed rate loan may be an especially good fit for you. However, if you do see yourself selling your home in the near future, an ARM mortgage with a low initial rate may be the best way to bring down your monthly payment.
Getting Out some Cash
Are you hoping to cash out some of your home equity with your refinance? Perhaps you need to update your kitchen, take care of your college kid's tuition, or go on a special family vacation.

If you have the equity in your home to make it work, paying off other high interest debt (for example: car loans, credit cards, student loans, or home equity loans) means you can possible save several hundred dollars monthly.
Paying it off Faster
Are you dreaming of paying your loan off sooner, while building up your equity more quickly? You should consider refinancing with a shorterterm loan, such as a 15-year mortgage loan. Although your mortgage payments will probably be more, you can save on interest; so your home equity will rise up faster. However, if you've had your current thirty-year mortgage for a long time and the loan balance is somewhat low, you might be able to do this without raising your mortgage payment — you could even be able to save!
