Time is right to purchase or refinance says NVRmortgages.com
Toronto, ON, Jan. 17, 2001 - The recent decision
to reduce interest rates may prompt consumers waiting for a drop in interest
rates to obtain a mortgage or refinance a current mortgage.
Lower interest rates increase consumer buying power. The
decision to lower interest rates is prompting more consumers to refinance a
current mortgage - especially if they obtained the mortgage in the last 24
months - or purchase a home. In fact, we have experienced a surge in inbound
traffic within the last week.

A drop in rates boosts affordability
As interest rates drop, home affordability rises. First time homebuyers
and move-up buyers can see their home affordability increase by thousands with a
slight downward shift in interest rates.
When and why to refinance
Lower rates also spark interest in refinancing and generally bring to mind the
old rule-of-thumb that refinancing makes sense only when consumers can save
2% or more on their current rate.
Today's homeowners refinance for a variety of reasons and don't
always hold out for the 2% difference. This holds especially true for homeowners
with adjustable rate mortgages who may want to switch to a more stable fixed
rate, or those who wish to tap into some of the equity in their home.
Refinancing may also shorten mortgage term
Many homeowners may also want to refinance to shorten a mortgage term. In some
cases, with a lower interest rate, the mortgage term length can be reduced for
about the same payment the homeowner is presently making. Even saving 1% on
a rate can make sense, if the homeowner plans to stay in the home for more than
a few years. In many cases, the closing costs resulting from refinancing a loan
to 7% from 8% can be recovered in less than two years.
