Should you refinance now?

 

With interest rates steadily dropping, you may be tempted to hit the refinance button right now, but think before you commit.

 

By weighing out what you will save against how much the refinance will cost you, you may find that it is not worth it to refinance to lock in a lower interest rate right now.

If the rate is even a quarter percent lower for a fixed loan, it is definitely worth to refinance if you'll be staying in your home, just my two cents.

Why not look at the bigger picture.  With this market, it is time to look at moving up.  Now you can afford a bigger house at the same mortgage payment.  With the choices available today, it is worth checking into.

Each person should make sure it is a financial gain in the long run in regards to a refinance or not.  Thanks for your post.
