The Benefits of Refinancing into a 15-Year Loan
Have you considered refinancing your home loan to a shorter term to save money? When you switch to a shorter loan term, you’ll typically get a lower interest rate — often a full percentage point or more. And when you pay down your loan quicker, you are borrowing for a shorter amount of time, which means you’ll spend much less on interest over the life of your loan!
Calculations do not include property tax, mortgage insurance, or home insurance. Total interest calculation is based on interest rate, not APR.
If you want to:
•Lower your interest rate
•Pay less interest overall
•Pay off your loan sooner
•Build equity faster
•Anticipate higher income and/or less debt in the coming years
•Plan to retire within 30 years
•Look forward to a mortgage-free retirement
Then why not cut years off your loan and save thousands of dollars in interest? See how much you could save!

Note: By refinancing your existing loan, your total finance charges may be higher over the life of the loan. Always consult with a tax advisor concerning tax implications of your mortgage.
