Answer a few simple questions to get matched with a lender partner who will provide you with a competitive mortgage quote.

Why Refinance Investment Properties?

Generally speaking, refinancing offers successful investors an opportunity to expand or improve their portfolio. The best time to consider refinancing a rental property is when the value of the property is high and interests are low as this will allow you to negotiate favorable terms.

A few of the most common reasons that investors choose to refinance their investment property or properties are:

To lower your current mortgage interest rates

Currently, interest rates are relatively low for real estate investors. Even if they rise slightly, they are forecast to remain favorable compared to historic rates.

Tracking interest rates will help minimize costs when investing in a rental properties.

Get more financing to expand your rental portfolio

Money gained from refinancing can be used towards a downpayment on another investment property. This is considered a cash-out refinance when you take out a value against your mortgage to pay for something else.

Renegotiate terms and pay off your loan faster

Perhaps your current mortgage is 30 years long and you want to reduce that. Along with making your interest payments more predictable, switching to a fixed-rate loan lowers your overall monthly payments and interest rates. You may even be able to reduce your loan term significantly. You could reduce your mortgage from 30 years to 15 years, or from 20 years down to 10 years.

To upgrade or renovate current investment properties

Renovating a home can add tremendous value, but first, you need the money to do so. By refinancing, you can have access to more money to renovate. This is another example of cash-out refinancing.
