Tips on Mortgage Refinancing

Apr 24, 2008
Due to the current state of the economy and home foreclosures reaching alarming numbers, the time has come to consider refinancing on your home mortgage loan. The Internet has made it easier and more convenient to compare multiple refinance companies and locate the agency with the best potential for helping you. Research is imperative to ensuring you are getting what you need and only what you need.

In the past, the only way to research mortgage refinancing was to do the legwork yourself. This required making endless phone calls and setting up meetings with various refinancing experts for a one-on-one consultation. Again the Internet has come to the rescue. Researching refinance companies for the best rates is as easy as a few clicks of your mouse. Many websites offer to do the comparison-shopping for you.

LendingTree.com is one such company. The website uses the information entered on the site to make a comparison of a maximum of four potential refinancing agencies. The entire process is now convenient and less time consuming. The ability to have several options in front of you makes comparison-shopping a breeze.

The free online mortgage calculator will help determine how much is currently being paid in taxes and interest while comparing multiple refinance options to determine the amount of savings to be expected from the company you choose to work with.

The standard refinance company will run a credit check to enable them to assess your financial situation and credit worthiness. You are entitled to one free copy of your credit report annually. Use this benefit to be aware of potential negative reports that the underwriters at the refinance company will see and question, before they see it. Just because you are considering online mortgage refinancing does not change the rules. Your credit report always plays an integral part in any refinancing endeavor.

Before deciding on a mortgage refinance company, discuss your situation with friends and family who have already been through a refinance process. Their experiences may provide insight into which company is best for you. Many companies are competing for your business. Some are bound to be disreputable agencies. Let common sense prevail. Well-established companies have a proven track record and are usually the best option based on their stability. Smaller lenders should not be overlooked because they may be able to offer more personalized services.

Searching for online mortgage refinancing can be as easy or difficult as you make it, but by using the tools that are available, the process can be simplified tremendously. Don't take anything for granted. Read everything no matter how detailed it might be and if you do not understand something, be sure to ask for clarification before signing on the dotted line.

Remember: Asking for help doesn't make you stupid, getting yourself stuck with a bad mortgage refinance loan does!
