Refinancing essentially means that you’re applying for a loan all over again. However, this time it comes with some benefits. When you refinance, you will be saving money on your monthly mortgage payments which can lift some burden off the homeowner if they’re having trouble paying the loan. If an owner decides to change from a 30-year mortgage to a 15-year mortgage, the could be possibly saving hundreds or even thousands of dollars of interest over the duration of the loan.

If a homeowner decides to refinance an adjustable-rate mortgage into a fixed-rate mortgage, this can provide the security of an interest rate that is locked down and stays the same over the loan term. Also, their new monthly mortgage amount will stay the same as well over the duration of the loan.
