What can you do with your home equity?

Homeowners often refinance an existing mortgage to obtain a lower interest rate, but there's more to refinancing than just lowering your rate. 

Here are a few possible benefits of refinancing1

•    Switch to a fixed rate loan — Change from an adjustable rate mortgage (ARM) to a predictable fixed rate mortgage.
•    Reduce your loan's term — Shorten the term of your loan to pay off your loan more quickly.
•    Cash out — Use equity in your home to take cash out for home improvement projects.
•    Remove mortgage insurance — A new loan program may not require monthly mortgage insurance.

Interested in a cash out refinance2? You can access your home equity to: 

  • Finance home improvements to increase the value of your home
  • Help cover the cost of education
  • Consolidate or pay off other debt
  • Take a once in a lifetime vacation
  • Buy a second home or investment property
