Bad Credit Mortgage Refinancing : Important Loan Considerations

Sep 14, 2007
This could happen to you. You own a home and you have a bad credit history, plus you have a credit card debt that has high interest. You also may have a home with considerable equity. So what should you do to be able to pay your mounting interest bills is this - you refinance your home and cash out the equity. You use the money you get from the equity to pay your high interest debt obligations.

Bad credit mortgage refinancing loans could be used to solve this problem. Refinancing with bad credit means that the owner of the home uses the cash from the house's equity to pay the bills. This process is called a debt consolidation loan. The only thing necessary to make this more effective is that the value of the home being refinanced should have increased so that the appraised worth of the house could entitle you to a larger loan. The amount of the loan therefore must be significantly high enough so the owner would be able to cover the closing cost of the loan and have enough money to pay off any debt.

Bad credit mortgage refinancing has some definite advantages. For one, the loan term would be a bit longer. The idea is that since a sub-prime loan usually carries a lower interest rate compared to a credit card with high interest, the payment therefore will be a lot smaller than the total cost of the old payment for the house and the consumer debt payments.

It is very important to be aware of the risks you may incur when you choose bad credit mortgage refinancing. If the owner of the home does not in any way change his or her behavior leading to his or her increase in debt, consequently and more so logically, more credit card bills with a higher interest rate could be accumulated. And because the equity of the homeowner is already "cashed out" the foreseeable alternative would then be - unfortunately - bankruptcy or foreclosure.

If you choose then a debt consolidation loan as the method of bad credit mortgage refinancing, make sure to use the cash money you have to immediately pay off any debts you have accumulated.

There is another important consideration with bad credit mortgage refinancing. If you had existing bad credit when you purchased a home, you may have taken out a sub-prime loan mortgage with high interest. After more than two years or so, you have then been able to pay your loan on time and so you have no record of bad credit. Now you think you could refinance your loan and receive a good interest rate.

Bad credit mortgage refinancing is not as easy as you may think. Though you may have more than two years of good credit history, you may still not be able to have a loan at a low interest rate. The loan that may be awarded to you still depends on a number of factors. Two of these factors include your current income as well as how much debt you currently have.

But under these circumstances, it is still a good idea to refinance a bad credit mortgage. This is if the following statements are present and true: the new loan acquired has an interest rate that is a point or two lower than the current loan you have plus the owner of the home has plans to stay in the house for a minimum of three years or more.
