Find out your current interest rate.
Since the purpose of refinancing is to lower your interest rate, it is essential to find out what the current rate is on your loan. You can do this by checking the information on your loan documents or by asking your lender.
Check your credit score.
It’s important to have your most up to date credit score when starting this process. If you have been paying your bills on time, it is possible that your score may have increased since you initially took out the loan.
Start your applications.
It is best to apply to more than one refinancing company so you can compare different rates. Be sure to submit all applications within a 14 day time period to minimize any negative impact on your credit score.
Evaluate your offers.
In order to ensure that you’re receiving the monthly payments you desire, you should take the time to run the numbers to verify what your payments will be.
Decide your loan term.
You will need to choose the length of your loan term. Shorter term loans will offer lower interest rates, but the payments will be larger. Longer term loans will provide smaller payments, but in the long term you will end up paying more in overall interest.
It’s important to make sure you choose the offer that works best for your situation.
