Why are interest rates important?

The importance of interest rates is sometimes a misunderstood concept. But when thinking about refinancing it’s the single most important factor in making a good decision for your finances and peace of mind.

Simply put, the interest rate is the percentage-based fee your lender charges to make the loan to you. Your payment is made up of both principal, or the amount you borrowed, plus the interest charged. The Annual Percentage Rate (APR) is also a percentage, but it also includes all the costs of financing, including any fees and charges that you have to pay to get the loan. The APR for a given loan is typically higher than the interest rate, but your monthly payments are based on the interest rate, not the APR.

Why do interest rates go up and down?

Interest rates move up and down depending on a number of factors including the strength of the economy, the lender’s costs, and your personal credit score. Base rates are established by the Federal Reserve bank in Washington D.C., which is constantly monitoring the growth of the economy. Individual lenders construct their interest rates based on the type of loan and other risk factors. While you can’t influence the base rate, you can definitely benefit by working to build and maintain a high credit score.

Even if you have less than perfect credit, there are loan types that can help you save money and get out of debt faster.

Debt Consolidation

Sometimes consolidating high-interest loans into a single, lower interest rate loan makes the most sense. If you own your home, chances are you have built up equity which you can borrow against in a Cash-Out Mortgage Refinance solution.

But don't worry, there are debt consolidation options available even if you don't own your home. If you find yourself in this situation a personal loan might be your best option.
