Shorter-Term Refis Can Save Big Money

August 16th, 2010

In a time when saving money is on everyone’s mind, unfortunately some methods of saving money can be easily overlooked. Take a look at the below article by Stephanie Armour. Those that can take advantage of the extremely low mortgage rates now will be in an amazingly rare position that will probably never happen again in our lifetime.

Shorter-Term Refis Can Save Big Money
Shorter-term loans are gaining favor as rates continue to fall.

On average at today’s rates, a borrower refinancing their 6.5 percent loan would save $70,000 over the life of a $200,000 20-year loan vs. a 30-year loan.

These kinds of refinances are particularly popular among people who are approaching retirement, said Peter Iche, president of Carthage Federal Savings and Loan Association in Carthage, N.Y.
