The 5/5 & 5/1 Adjustable Rate Mortgage

Mortgage Refinancing

In some instances, refinancing your current mortgage loan can help you lower your mortgage payment. Borrowers can borrow against the equity built up in their home at a lower cost than they can from other sources. Like most mortgage interest, another benefit to mortgage refinancing is that if you pay off credit cards, the interest you pay will now be tax deductible.
