Real Estate Refinancing

Real Estate refinancing is the replacement of the present mortgage secured by the property with a new mortgage using the same property as collateral.

Real estate refinancing can be used to take some built up equity out of the property, to replace the existing mortgage with one having a lower interest rate or to move other debt that is not tax favorable to the mortgage which does have tax advantages.

An alternative to refinancing to take some equity out of a property is to take out a second mortgage.  A second mortgage is subordinate to the first mortgage and usually has a higher interest rate than can be had with a new first mortgage.

A second mortgage offers the advantage of not altering the original mortgage and usually involves less scrutiny and paperwork.  The advantage is that it is an easy way to move high rate credit card and other non-secured debt to a lower second mortgage rate with tax advantages.

A second mortgage can also be structured in the form of a credit line.  In this type of second mortgage the loan amount is in place but interest is only charged on the amount of the credit line being used.  It also has the flexibility to be used, paid down and used again.

In conclusion, if your objective is to reduce the interest rate on your first mortgage or you wish to use the lowest rate available to pull equity out of a property, then real estate refinancing is for you.  However, if you just need a quick, easy way to access some equity to pay off some credit card debt or use equity as a credit line, then a second mortgage might better fit the bill.
