What are the benefits of refinancing a mortgage?
Generally, you can refinance a mortgage to obtain a lower rate, which will decrease the amount of finance charges for the remainder of your loan. You can also shorten the original loan term and build home equity much quicker. To see if refinancing is your best option, call RBFCU’s Mortgage Resource Center at 1-800-580-3300 to speak with a mortgage lending representative.
How long does it take to refinance a mortgage loan?

Should I refinance my mortgage?
If you're trying to determine whether you should refinance your mortgage, use our mortgage calculators to determine what your monthly savings might be at different rate points. A typical rule of thumb is that if you can reduce your current interest rate by 0.75-1% or higher, then it might make sense to consider refinancing move. If you have questions about whether refinancing your mortgage may benefit you, our loan officers can assist you in reviewing the benefits of refinancing.
Can I refinance my mortgage even if I owe more than my home is currently worth?
Yes, but you would need to pay the difference between what is owed on your mortgage and your home's current value at closing.
