What Is a Mortgage Refinance in Massachusetts?

Mortgage refinancing occurs when homeowners get a new mortgage to pay off an old one. If you live and own property in Massachusetts, consider refinancing your mortgage and finding a different, perhaps better option. An experienced attorney can help you sift through all the possibilities and understand the best way to proceed.

Reasons To Refinance Your Residential Mortgage

Residential refinancing mortgages might sound complicated at first. However, many homeowners throughout the U.S. successfully do it with the help of a trusted lawyer. You might be interested in refinancing your home for several reasons, including:

  • Adjusting the loan: If you’re dissatisfied with your monthly payments or total loan amount, a real estate attorney can help with modifications. You can do things like shorten or lengthen the loan term and change the payment schedule.
  • Receiving cash for paying debts: Over time, your mortgage payments will build up equity in your home. You could cash out and pay off debts by refinancing the mortgage.
  • Doing home renovations: Home improvement projects can be expensive. However, you can refinance your mortgage and use the home equity to pay for renovations instead of getting another loan.
  • Allocating funds to a retirement plan: Refinancing your mortgage could provide extra funds to contribute toward a retirement savings plan.

One of the main reasons to refinance is that you can get a new mortgage with a better rate or term. This can help you save money on the principal and interest. You will still need to consider origination fees and closing costs, though.
