Reducing Your Monthly Payments
Are your refinance goals to lower your rate and consequently your mortgage payments? If so, the best option could be a low fixed-rate loan. Perhaps you now have a fixed-rate mortgage with a higher rate, or maybe you hold an ARM — adjustable rate mortgage — where the interest rate can vary. Even when interest rates rise, a fixed-rate mortgage loan will stay at the same, low interest rate, unlike an ARM. If you plan to stay in your home for about five more years, a loan with a fixed rate may be an especially good choice for you. However, an ARM with a low intitial payment may be a wiser way to lower your payments if you plan on moving within the near future.

Getting a Shorter Term Loan
Are you hoping to fatten up your home equity faster, and pay your mortgage off sooner? Then, you'll want to look into refinancing to a short term mortgage - for example, a fifteen-year loan. You will be paying less interest and growing your home equity more quickly, even though your mortgage payments will generally be bigger than you have been paying. But, you could be able to switch without a higher monthly mortgage payment if your longer term mortgage was closed a while ago, and the remaining balance is small. You may even make it lower!
