What is Mortgage Refinancing?


Mortgage refinancing is the process of replacing an existing mortgage with a new one. The main goal of refinancing is to obtain a better interest rate or more favorable loan terms. Refinancing can help homeowners lower their monthly mortgage payments, shorten their loan term, or free up equity in their home.


Here are the steps involved in mortgage refinancing:

  1. Determine Your Goals: Before you begin the refinancing process, it's important to determine your goals. Do you want to lower your monthly payment, pay off your loan faster, or access your home equity? Understanding your goals will help you choose the right refinance option.

  2. Shop for Lenders: Once you know your goals, start shopping for lenders. Get quotes from at least three different lenders to compare interest rates and loan terms.

  3. Submit an Application: Once you've chosen a lender, submit a refinance application. The lender will review your credit score, income, and other financial information to determine your eligibility.

  4. Appraisal: The lender will order an appraisal to determine the current value of your home. This is necessary to determine the amount of equity you have in your home.

  5. Underwriting: Once your application is complete, the lender will underwrite your loan to determine if you qualify for refinancing. This may involve verifying your income and employment, reviewing your credit report, and assessing your home's value.

  6. Closing: If you are approved for refinancing, you will need to attend a closing meeting where you will sign the new loan documents. You will also need to pay closing costs, which can include appraisal fees, loan origination fees, and title insurance.

  7. Start Making Payments: Once you've closed on your new loan, you will start making payments to your new lender. Be sure to make your payments on time to avoid late fees and penalties.

In summary, mortgage refinancing can help you lower your monthly payment, pay off your loan faster, or access your home equity. To get started, determine your goals, contact a Parada Mortgage Loan Officer, and submit a refinance application. With the right preparation and guidance, refinancing your mortgage can be a smart financial decision.

Refinance to lower your interest rate, lower your monthly payments, debt consolidation or to cash out.


There are many reasons people refinance their mortgage but the most common ones are to save money on their monthly bill or over the life of their loan. That said, some people also take advantage of refinancing to shorten the length of their mortgage or to get some of their equity out of their home to cover other expenses.

Regardless of why you’re thinking about refinancing, it’s important to weigh all your options and come up with a strategy that makes sense for your personal financial goals.

Are you held back by high-interest rate debt? Get debt-free sooner and immediately increase monthly cash-flow by consolidating all your debts into one lower interest rate!

Why pay high-interest rates on your bank's credit card debt when you can add that debt to your mortgage and pay a much lower interest rate! One important part of a strategy is knowing "good debt" from "bad debt". A well-planned mortgage can help you turn those bad debts into good debts and get them out of the way.

  • Consolidate high-interest rate credit cards to one lower rate.

  • Save money and increase cash flow.

  • Reduce stress knowing that your financial situation is now manageable.
