What is refinancing, and when should I consider it?


Refinancing is the process of replacing an existing loan with a new one, typically to secure better terms or lower interest rates. You should consider refinancing when interest rates drop significantly, as it can potentially reduce your monthly payments, save money on interest over the life of the loan, or shorten the loan term to pay off debt faster. Additionally, refinancing may make sense if your credit score has improved since you originally obtained the loan, as this can lead to more favourable terms. However, it’s essential to weigh the costs associated with refinancing, including application fees, and closing costs, against the potential benefits to determine if it’s a financially sound decision.
