A lot of homeowners in places like Orange County, Los Angeles County, Riverside County, and throughout San Bernardino, Ventura and San Diego County, took out Home Equity Lines of Credit (HELOCs) during the recession. Many of these equity lines were interest only loans for 10 years. However, at Summit Lending, we've been getting a lot of calls from homeowners who are now seeing their interest rates skyrocket on these loans, as they adjust into fully amortizing loans. For homeowners who have large Home Equity Lines of Credit, payments have been increasing hundreds if not thousands of dollars each month.
So, what can you do if your Home Equity Line of Credit has adjusted, and your monthly payment has increased?
The options will depend upon your unique situation. But in some cases, it may make sense to refinance your loan now, before interest rates increase.
With a stronger economy, comes an increase in goods and service, which is why interest rates have been climbing a bit lately. But the increases are incremental, rather than drastic. All the same, in order to get the best mortgage rate for your refinance in Southern California, it may be in your best interest to speak with a top-rated and top-reviewed SoCal mortgage broker today. Refinancing now, before rates go up may not only decrease your monthly payments, but also save you money in interest over time.
