How to refinance a mortgage?
Refinancing your mortgage is a lot like the process you went through to initially acquire your mortgage loan. It required you speaking to a mortgage professional and doing a loan application along with the lender running your credit to see if you qualify for a loan. In addition, you had to provide tax returns, w-2’s, bank statements, etc….. In order to refinance, you are going to go through a similar process and provide the exact same documentation.

You also have to consider how much it’s costing you to go through the refinancing process and how long it will take you to pay off that cost with the monthly savings you would be getting with the new loan.
