What do I need to know about refinancing a house and debt consolidation?


Answer by  matt80 (142)

Prior to refinancing a house, if you're only planning on staying in the house another couple years, it may not be worth it. Debt consolidation can hurt your credit score.

A second mortgage is used to consolidate your loans and get a lower interest rate. However, this means that you can lose your home if you do not pay on debts that were caused by over-spending. If you declare bankruptcy on credit card debt, they have no recourse. If the debt is against your house, it could be sold.


Answer by  timeismoney (994)

Mortgage refinancing is usually a good idea when (1) the difference between your current mortgage interest rate and the new one is 2 or more points, and (2) you plan to be in your home for at least 3 more years. Credit card debt consolidation decisions depend on ever changing rate and fee differences when comparing credit cards.
