How do I know when it is a good time to refinance?
The old rule of thumb on refinancing held that the interest rate would need to decline by at least 2% for the refinancing to be worthwhile. A more accurate measurement would be to consider the savings in monthly payment, the costs of the loan transaction, and the term of the new loan compared to the old term. The key is to determine whether the benefits of payment savings and/or term reduction exceeds the costs of the transaction.
