Donít Forget the Costs of a Refinancing Home Loan

Refinance, refinance, refinance, that's what all the advertisements shout out to us. You've only got to open a newspaper and they jump out at you and grab you by the throat. With the mortgage interest rate being so low at present, everyone should take advantage of a refinancing home loan if it will save them money and lower their monthly repayments.

Searching for a refinancing home loan couldn't be easier. So many companies have recognised the demand for a refinance mortgage that they are spending millions of dollars advertising their low rates. You should always be aware that there are extra costs associated with changing your mortgage lender and you should always find out what these are.

Costs that need to be accounted for in choosing a refinancing home loan

These are the standard fees and charges that you would expect to pay when taking out a refinancing home loan. The cost of each of these will be unique to each lender.

  • Application fee
  • Attorney's fee for you and the lender
  • Title search
  • Appraisal fee
  • Local fees such as taxes and transfers
  • Credit check costs
  • Title insurance
  • Inspections
  • Document preparation

To get a handle on these refinancing home loan costs, approach the lenders that you feel you would like to do business with and ask them to set out the costs for you, as well as the mortgage interest rate, monthly repayments and mortgage amortization schedule. You should also contact your attorney and discuss how much they would charge.

Only when you understand the full costs associated with a home refinancing loan should you decide whether to submit an application or stick with your current mortgage. As the decision could potentially affect your financial obligations for the next fifteen or twenty years, it's not a decision that should be taken lightly.
