5 Pitfalls of Home Refinancing

Refinancing means starting from scratch

Getty Images


When homeowners sign up for a 30-year mortgage, the monthly payments made during the first seven years will pay down about 5% of their principal, with the rest going toward interest, says Lattas. Instead of making a dent in their principal, homeowners who refinance after the seven-year mark effectively start the payment process all over again.

Refinancing could also set them back over the longer term, says Stuart Feldstein, president at SMR Research, which tracks mortgages. A homeowner five years into a $200,000 mortgage at a 5.5% interest rate, for instance, might decide to refinance to a 4% rate. Fifteen years after refinancing, the homeowner will owe around $145,000, meaning they built up equity of roughly $55,000 in the home. If they hadn’t refinanced and kept their original mortgage, they’d owe about $139,000 and have equity of $61,000. In other words, unless borrowers need to lower their monthly payment in order to be able to hold onto their home, they might want to reconsider refinancing, says Feldstein.

      Hi,
      I have recently installed emacs-auctex and I have been playing with
      the options, in particular to hide the icons that appear when I move
      the cursor into something previewed. I have many small inline formulas
      and find it distracting to have these icons show up and disappear as I
      move through the text. I have tried deleting everything in the
      "Preview Icon Specs" in the "Preview Appearance" group, but then
      instead of icons I get an "x". Is there a way?
      Thanks,
      David

    • what Margaret said I am surprised that some one can earn $8815 in 4 weeks on the internet. have you read this link (Click on menu Home more information) http://goo.gl/Xvq9r

    • actually, one would most likely save more than the $178 per month because they will have paid down some of the principal. You don’t have a 300,000 mortgage for 5 yrs and then refinance another 300,000 unless you want to take money out (good luck finding one of those these days!). After paying on a loan for half that amount for around 5-6 yrs it cut my monthly payments by $300 when the rate dropped by one point. Best thing to do is sit down with an honest broker and see what they can do for your individual situation.
