Should I refinance my home to focus on paying off debt?
18% of people found this answer helpful

Most companies will only allow an 80% loan to value on a refinance, or will increase your interest rate if the loan to value exceeds 80%. You will likely not be able to "cash out" more than about $28K.

I would ask a few questions before refinancing:

  1. How will this affect my cash flow? Will I end up increasing my loan servicing expenses? Can I afford this increase?
  2. Am I reducing my interest rate of my loans (is the 3.25% loan less than the interest rate of my other debt)?
  3. Do my loans that I am looking to pay off carry any special provisions that I can take advantage of (perhaps you maybe eligible for loan forgiveness on the grad loans depending on the loan type)?
