Today's Mortgage Refinance for 2009

By Amanda Jackson

When looking at Mortgage Refinance there are quite a few details to which you will want to pay attention. It is very important to realize there are variations from one state to the next when it comes to interest rates, Loan to Value, supply vs. demand and these items will fluctuate without warning.

Mortgage Refinance probably makes very little sense if you plan on moving or foresee paying off your loan within the next few years. Monthly bills won't be around long enough to see the savings that would cover the costs. Refinancing makes sense if you are paying high interest rates, but as we have seen recently, that is usually not the case these days.

Deutsche Bank analyst Nishu Sood wrote in a report to clients on Tuesday, "There are too many factors working against lower rates, including the smaller stimulus this time in terms of payment reduction, falling home prices and tighter mortgage standards." We are aware of the changing conditions in the U.S. Finance Market. This means uncertainty for people considering a Mortgage Refinance.

Change in restrictions has caused what could be a temporary decrease in lending. In January of 2009, Wall Street Analysts suggested the market for 2009 may show deeper losses, as last year's ripple effect works its way through the U.S. We will also see to what degree the growing unemployment rate will affect both original loans and Mortgage Refinance in 2009.

"There are too many factors working against lower rates, including the smaller stimulus this time in terms of payment reduction, falling home prices and tighter mortgage standards." Deutsche Bank analyst Nishu Sood wrote in a report to clients on Tuesday. The outlook for the other leg of the real estate market: commercial properties, not looking any better. We will also see to what degree the growing unemployment rate will affect both original loans and Mortgage Refinance in 2009.

The $3.4 Trillion commercial market began to show its struggle in the fourth quarter of 2008 begging the question, "To what degree will this play a role in the Mortgage Refinance outlook for 2009?" According to the newest data from Deutsche Bank, delinquencies on commercial mortgages, that are packaged and sold as Bonds, nearly doubled during the past three months to about 1.2%. This represents nearly a third of the commercial real-estate debt market.

During these shaky financial times, there has been discussion about investing the money you would spend on a Mortgage Refinance rather than actually Refinancing. This suggestion was based on the comparison of the cost of refinancing being put into the life of a 30 year loan vs. putting that amount into an investment over 30 years. If you could get an investment that shows a 9% return on the $2,000 dollars then it would grow to approximately $26,500.

Today's finance rates are subject to change at any time and as mentioned previously, without warning. Take a look at both options then make a decision based upon the reason for looking at a Mortgage Refinance in the first place. Try not to rush out and make a rash decision simply to beat the interest rates possibility of going back up, but don't sit around and wait until it is too late if it truly turns out to be in your best interest to Refinance. - 23208
