Half of HECM homeowners have over 50% or more of their net worth in their home’s equity!
As provided by HUD, it makes sense to refinance if there is a net benefit to the mortgagor. For example, this could include a lower interest rate or a mortgagors principle limit exceeds the total cost of the refinancing by the amount equal or great than 5x the cost of the transaction.
Rhonda has a HECM loan with an initial principal limit of $120,000. Rhonda just learned she’s eligible for a new principal limit of $200,000, which represents an increase of $80,000 ($200,000 - $120,000). With closing costs at $5,000, your refinance benefit factor would be 16 and would make sense to consider the refinance.
If Rhonda had the same principal loan limit, but was only eligible for a principal increase of $20,000 (bringing the new principal limit to $140,000), it would not make sense for her to refinance.
Dylan has a mortgage on his house. He has a 30 year fixed mortgage with an interest rate of 5.00%. He is currently in year 2 of payments. After speaking with the team at MortgageRewind.com, Dylan is offered a new 30 year fixed loan with an interest rate of 4.00%. The savings alone will help Dylan pay off the loan faster and pull a little cash out for his son's 529 education fund. It makes sense for Dylan to refinance.
Dylan is wise beyond his years.
Timothy has a HECM loan with an initial principal limit balance of $350,000. Timothy has just learned he's eligible for a new principal limit of $400,000, which represents an increase of $50,000 ($400,000 - $350,000). With the closing cost of $11,000, your refinance benefit would be a benefit factor of 4.5 and would not make sense to consider a refinance.
If Timothy had the same principle limit increase, and the fixed interest rate would drop from 8.99% APR to 5.99% APR, it would make sense for Timothy to refinance.
Solveign has a mortgage on her house. She currently has a 30 year fixed mortgage with an interest rate of 4.5%. She has been paying off the loan ahead of schedule and would like to utilize some of the equity in the home she has built up to build her dream kitchen. Additionally, Solveig saw that interest rates were at historic lows. Finally, she wanted to move to a 15 year fixed loan. Because she is lowering her interest rate and terms, it does make sense for Solveig to refinance.
Solveign is very smart.
When a borrower is married to someone who is younger than 62 years of age, there are several provisions that will protect the younger spouse. As long as they follow some guidelines, non-borrowing spouses are allowed to stay in the home, even after the borrower passes away.
