Helpful Auto Refinance Information

Aug 17, 2007
Auto refinance is where you take out a new loan to pay off your current auto loan. When you do this you will normally look to get a better loan. This generally means getting a lower rate of interest which makes the loan cheaper. You may also look to extend the term of the loan to reduce the amount required to be paid each month. This does not reduce the cost of the loan but will make the monthly payments more manageable.

If you have a low credit score for example one that is around 600 or lower then you will need to shop around to get a good loan. You will have to undertake research and the best way to do this is use the internet. It is usually a lot cheaper and quicker than calling individual auto finance or auto refinance lenders. If you find a loan you like then you can normally apply on line and get a response within a few days.

You can search for companies that specialize in auto refinancing. There are many out there who will give a good deal to those who pay on time. The specialist auto finance and auto refinance sites often have calculators that allow users to compare payments for loans of different lengths and at different rates of interest.

Auto refinance calculators will often require you to input the details of your current auto loan so it is usually a good idea to have the paperwork to hand. You will normally need to specify the amount required to pay off the loan and the number of months left on the current loan. When calculating the outstanding balance on your auto loan pick a day 10-14 days ahead. This allows a week or two for the auto refinance loan to be granted.

While calculators are useful in giving the user an indication of the cost of the loan, it should always be remembered that there are other factors to take into account when looking for a loan. So if you are going to take out an auto refinance loan, read the terms and conditions. Pay particular attention to those which cannot be mathematically calculated and therefore do not get taken into account by the calculator.

If you are looking to get an auto refinance loan then you may look at getting a personal or unsecured loan from a financial institution such as a bank. Banks are often stricter than other lenders when it comes to the criteria for qualifying for a loan. However, if you already have a relationship with a bank, such as a current account, checking account or saving account, then it can help enormously and give you a better chance of obtaining a loan.
