A Financial Team Across All Divisions


Are you looking to save money on your home loan? Refinancing could be the answer you’ve been searching for. At Tanti Financial Services, we understand that your financial situation can change over time, and refinancing your mortgage may be a smart move to help you achieve your goals. In this article, we’ll guide you through the ins and outs of refinancing, so you can make an informed decision about whether it’s the right choice for you.

What is Refinancing?

Refinancing is the process of replacing your existing home loan with a new one. When you refinance, you take out a new mortgage to pay off your current loan, often with a different lender. People choose to refinance for various reasons, such as securing a lower interest rate, changing loan terms, or accessing the equity in their home.

Benefits of Refinancing

Refinancing your home loan can open the door to a world of benefits, including:

  • Lower monthly payments: By securing a lower interest rate, you may be able to reduce your monthly mortgage payments, freeing up cash for other expenses or financial goals.
  • Potential savings over the life of the loan: A lower interest rate can also mean significant savings over the life of your loan. Even a small reduction in your rate can add up to thousands of dollars saved in the long run.
  • Opportunity to switch from an adjustable-rate to a fixed-rate mortgage: If you currently have an adjustable-rate mortgage (ARM) and are concerned about potential rate increases, refinancing to a fixed-rate mortgage can provide stability and peace of mind.
  • Access to home equity: If you’ve built up equity in your home, refinancing can allow you to access those funds for home improvements, debt consolidation, or other financial needs.

When to Consider Refinancing

Refinancing can be a great option in several scenarios:

  • Drop in interest rates: If market interest rates have dropped significantly since you took out your original loan, refinancing could help you secure a lower rate and save money.
  • Improved credit score: If your credit score has improved since you initially obtained your mortgage, you may qualify for better loan terms and rates.
  • Change in financial situation: If your financial situation has changed, such as an increase in income or a reduction in debt, refinancing may allow you to secure more favourable loan terms.


As a general rule of thumb, refinancing is often worthwhile if you can secure an interest rate that is 1-2% lower than your current rate.

The refinancing process typically takes 30-45 days from application to closing. However, the exact timeline can vary depending on your lender and the complexity of your situation.

When refinancing, you’ll typically need to provide proof of income (e.g., pay stubs, W-2s), tax returns, bank statements, and information about your current mortgage and property.

Refinancing costs can vary but typically include application fees, appraisal fees, and closing costs. In some cases, these costs can be rolled into your new loan. We’ll help you understand the costs associated with refinancing so you can make an informed decision.

Whether refinancing is right for you depends on your individual financial situation and goals. If you can secure a lower interest rate, want to change your loan terms, or need to access your home equity, refinancing may be a good option. Our experienced brokers can help you evaluate your situation and determine if refinancing is the best choice for you.
