“Refinancing is a No-Brainer”

“Refinancing is a No-Brainer”



You assisted my wife and I when we purchased our home. Currently we have a rate of 4.25% and we are 6 years into the loan. The value is around $350,000 and the current mortgage balance is $200,000.
Here is our issue, we have a little over $60,000 in credit card debt. We have made very little headway over the last few years paying down these obligations.
My question is this, should we go after a home equity line to pay off these debt or refinance? Let me know your thoughts.

Their current monthly obligations, including the mortgage payment is $4,312. The numbers will blow your mind. I am doing a new mortgage in the amount of $265,000 at 3.25% for 25 years. The new mortgage payment, including taxes and insurance is $1791, a savings of $2600 per month. They are considering reducing the number of years to 15 or 20 years. No matter what, that is a ton of monthly savings.
