Lowering Your Payments
Are you refinancing primarily to lower your rate and monthly payments? If so, the best choice might be a low fixed-rate loan. Perhaps you are presently in a mortgage with a high, fixed interest rate, or a mortgage loan with which the interest rate varies - an adjustable rate mortgage (ARM). Even if rates rise later, unlike with your ARM, when you qualify for a fixed rate mortgage, you set the low rate for the life of your loan. If you expect to live in your home for at least five more years, a fixed-rate loan may be an especially good fit for you. However, if you do see yourself moving in the near future, an ARM with a small initial rate may be the best way to bring down your monthly payments.
Refinancing to Cash Out

Consolidating Your Debt
Maybe you'd like to cash out some of the equity (cash out) to use toward other debt. If you have the home equity for it, paying off other high interest debt (for example: credit cards, home equity loans, or car loans) means you can save possibly several hundred dollars in your monthly budget.
Building up Equity Faster
Do you want to build up home equity more quickly, and have your mortgage paid off faster? If this is your plan, your refinance can switch you to a loan program with a short, for example: a 15 year loan. Although your mortgage payment amount will usually be increased, you will be paying less interest; so your equity will build up faster. Conversely, if your current longer term mortgage has a small balance remaining, and was closed a number of years ago, you could be able to make the change without paying more each month.
