Home is a place where a person lives, spends much of her time, or feels generally comfortable with. While a house (or other residential dwelling) is often referred to as a home, and is home to many people, the concept of "home" is broader than a physical dwelling. Home is often a place of refuge and safety, where worldy cares fade, with things and people you love becoming the focus. Home is central to one's life, primarily emotional, and partially physical.

Refinancing A Home Mortgage Can Be A Great Way To Realign Your Resources
By Abigail Franks
Refinancing real estate is a big business. You may have heard the term "conforming" and wondered what a loan would conform to? The answer is that loans that have certain characteristics and are of a certain type of considered confirming and can be sold into the stock and bond market. As a typical mortgage holder, this buying and trading is almost invisible to you and with the exception of possibly a letter saying your loan was sold, everything about the loan stays the same.
Refinancing a mortgage is much easier than applying for a completely new one. There are two major type of refinancing options. Those where you are simply refinancing to gain a lower interest rate and new loans where you are looking to take out some of your equity in cash.
The first option, that of lowering your interest rate may at first seem like a good deal. Remember however that during the first few years of a loan, the huge majority of the payments all go to interest. By doing a refi, you are able to lower your payment and get a lower interest rate
but you also start all over on that 30 year mortgage. So you pay a little less money per month but pay it for a longer period of time. Be certain to check and see if even with the lower interest rate which way actually costs you more in the long term.
Another thing to consider is the cost of the loan. If you're NOT a long term type or homeowner and plan to move within the next 3-5 years, does refinancing a mortgage make sense when all the costs and fees are considered?
Taking out equity from your is another popular reason to consider refinancing a mortgage. In this scenario, a homeowner isn't as concerned about lowering their monthly payments but wants cash for a variety of reasons. Once again however, a new mortgage may not be the best solution. Consider a 2nd mortgage. Seconds are typically for 15 years and they have the benefit of preserving your great interest rate on your primary mortgage. There are several types of loans that are essentially a second mortgage on your home.
Anyone considering a mortgage refinance should look at all the options before making the decision. Know and understand your situation and if you plan on being in the long term. (>5years). Check out the available options and make the right decision for your situation. Refinancing a mortgage can make a lot of sense given the right circumstances.
