San Antonio Mortgage Refinance

What is the Purpose of your San Antonio Mortgage Refinance

San Antonio Rate & Term Refinance

Mortgage refinancing simply means replacing your existing mortgage with a new one with better terms. There are many reasons to refinance a loan. You may want to lower the interest rate of your current loan, decrease the length of your mortgage, lower your monthly payment, or a combination of them.

For FHA-insured loan holders, the primary reason is to eliminate the mortgage insurance premium (MIP). Many borrowers who took FHA loans mainly refinance into a conventional loan after getting enough home equity.

What is Rate & Term Refinance?

A rate & term refinancing agreement is a refinancing product that replaces your existing loan with another loan. This new loan has a better interest rate and monthly amortization. This mortgage is called “no cash-out refinancing” because borrowers won’t get cash from the mortgage. The aim is to cut the borrower slack by agreeing on favorable terms. 

Rate and Term Refinance Basics

Refinancing is done to restructure debt. You can refinance to obtain better loan terms and change interest rates. For example, you can refinance to switch from an adjustable-rate mortgage to a fixed-rate mortgage if the mortgage rates are expected to rise soon.

A typical scenario of rate & term refinancing occurs to borrowers who took conventional conforming loans with less than a 20% down payment. Under the terms of the loans, if your down payment is less than 20%, you must carry private mortgage insurance (PMI) on top of the principal and interest payment. Once borrowers have obtained enough equity, they can refinance the loan and eliminate the mortgage insurance. This is typically true for current FHA loan homeowners. They must refinance to a conventional conforming loan to eliminate all FHA loans’ Mortgage Insurance Premium (MIP) that all FHA loans carry.

Other borrowers also refinance due to financial difficulties and setbacks. In this case, borrowers refinance to extend the loan term to get lower monthly amortizations. Borrowers recently discharged from Chapter 13 Bankruptcy may refinance but are subject to the strict requirements of the lender.

Requirements for Rate & Term Refinance

There are different kinds of refinancing products offered today. You choose conventional refinancing, which can be more affordable if you have a good payment history and a decent credit score. 

A score of 620 is necessary for conventional refinancing. For FHA refinancing, the credit score requirement is 580. For VA loan borrowers, it’s 620, but you can get an interest rate reduction refinance loan or IRRRL with a required credit score of at least 580.
