Refinancing Your Home

Let Your Equity Work for You

Everyone has financial goals, but not everyone has a plan to reach them. Refinancing your mortgage could be an excellent way lower your payments, reduce your repayment time, decrease your interest rate, reduce other debt obligations, or access the equity you’ve already built in your home for other goals.

Visit Mortgage Connection today to talk about your goals, your needs, and the current status of your mortgage. Together, we’ll come up with a plan to put you on the right financial track.

The Mortgage Refinancing Process

Step 1: Connect With a Mortgage Broker

First, we need to know what your goal is and what sort of equity you already have in your home. We’ll take a look at your current mortgage, ask you some questions about what you’d like to accomplish, and help walk you through the next steps from there.

Step 2: Submit an Application

Even though you’re refinancing instead of purchasing a new home, you’ll still need to qualify again as if you were applying for a new mortgage. We’ll take you through the application, help you choose the best lender and mortgage product for you, and gather the necessary paperwork. We might also have your home appraised to determine its current value.

Step 3: Approval & Funding

Once you’ve been approved, it’s time to connect with a lawyer to finalize the paperwork. You can choose the lawyer yourself, or use a title company assigned by the lender. Regardless of who you choose, your lawyer or title company will make sure your current lender is paid, your new lender is added to the title, and that any and all other conditions have been met.

What happens next is your call. You could have the lawyer simply give the proceeds to you to use however you like, or you could have the lawyer put the proceeds towards some debts. If you’ve opened a HELOC (Home Equity Line of Credit), your lender may provide cheques, or debit cards to access the available funds for future use.

Refinancing Your Home Could Offer Huge Benefits

Pay Off Your Mortgage Faster

Your original mortgage might be amortized longer than you’d like. If lower rates are available refinancing potentially gives you the chance to switch to a shorter amortization period without higher payments, allowing you to pay it off faster.

Get a Better Interest Rate

The interest rate market is always in flux. You may be in a 5 year fixed mortgage thinking you can’t do anything until it renews, but that’s not necessarily true. You could see significant savings by refinancing and breaking your mortgage early. Lenders are in the business of making money, and they often won’t tell you that you can save money by getting a new lower rate. Refinancing your home allows you to look at more competitive offers from different lenders to make sure you get the best possible option.

Access Your Equity

Refinancing your mortgage allows you to access up to 80% percent of the value of your home. A mortgage is likely the least expensive way to borrow money, and people regularly refinance to help them pay for renovations, purchase vehicles, reduce higher interest debts and more.
