Learn How To Lower Your
Mortgage Payments Today

Let's get started

You may be able to reduce your monthly payment through a mortgage refinance

Get a Competitive Mortgage Rate And Start Saving

There are a number of ways to lower your mortgage payment. Helping you choose the most competitive loan program that meets your unique financial circumstances, using our extensive loan portfolio, is our specialty.

We will start with looking at your current interest rate to see if lower rates are available. If so, we will help you determine whether you qualify for the lower rate.

Did you also know that “buying a lower rate” by paying discount points is another effective method for getting an even lower interest rate?

Extending your loan term is another option that may lower your mortgage payment. Perhaps an ARM (Adjustable Rate Mortgage) loan or an Interest Only (IO) loan might suit your goals. You can learn more about ARMs or Interest Only loans here.

Our advisors at American Pacific Mortgage will help you choose from the available loan options, knowing your goal is to lower your monthly payments. We will show you how each loan program compares to the others, so you know that you are choosing the loan that makes the most sense for your financial circumstances. Then, we will guide you through the refinance process so you can get to the finish line with confidence and ease. Find an advisor and get the answers you need.

Change Your Terms and

Lower Your Payment


Extend Your Loan Term

Did you choose a 15-year Fixed mortgage in order to pay off your mortgage as soon as possible? Extending the terms of your mortgage from a 15-year Fixed to a 30-year Fixed is just one way to reduce your monthly payment. In most cases, you can still pay your loan off early even if you extend your terms. Compare the monthly payments options with your American Pacific Mortgage advisor to see if extending your term is the right way to lower your payments.

Refinance Your Adjustable Rate Mortgage

Has your Adjustable Rate Mortgage recently adjusted upward? ARMs typically offer a very attractive interest rate for a fixed period of time. Once this period is over, it may make sense to refinance into a different term, like a Fixed Rate or even another ARM, to keep your rates and payments low. You can learn more about ARMs here.

Is IO The Way To Go?

With an Interest Only (IO) loan, you can pay just the interest for a preset period of time, which can range from 5 to 10 years. This program doesn’t make sense for everyone, so it is important to discuss your short-term and long-term goals with your loan advisor before selecting an IO loan. For those who want to flip a “fixer-upper” and quickly get it back on the market, the Interest Only option can be a powerful financial tool. You can learn more about Interest Only loans here.

The Loan Process

1.

Get
Pre-Approved


This is the time to get in the know. A pre-approval will give you an advantage when you find your perfect home. We can tell you what you need to get pre-approved, so you know the exact loan amount you qualify for, what your monthly payment will look like, and how much taxes and insurance will be. With a pre-approval, the loan process will be smoother and your offer will be stronger.

2.

Select Your
Loan Program


Fixed rate? Adjustable? FHA? There are multiple loan options that may fit your unique needs, and we can help you choose. Are you looking for the consistent rates and payments that a fixed rate loan can provide? Do you want the short-term benefits of lower rates that an adjustable rate loan can bring? Our extensive portfolio of loan options means you have more options available to get just what you need.

3.

Loan
Application


Your application will provide a complete picture to loan investors of your assets, debts and what you are buying. You will need to provide documentation, including a photo I.D., pay stubs, proof of income, tax returns, employment history, and information on all debts, assets, and sources for down payments. Don't worry, we will let you know exactly what is needed for the loan application so you can be fully prepared.

4.

Processing and
Underwriting


Your loan has specific investor guidelines that must be met, and an underwriter will review your documents to be sure that you meet them. While an underwriter reviews your file, an appraisal will be ordered on the home. Additional information may be requested, so don’t panic if you have to turn in more documents. That’s just the underwriter working hard to get your final approval.

5.

Loan
Approval


Before your loan is approved, you will receive pre-approval and a list of closing conditions that need to be met. These conditions can include verification that your employer is current and proof that homeowner’s insurance has been obtained. Once closing conditions have been satisfied, the underwriter issues a clear to close. Congratulations, your loan has been approved!

6.

Close
the Loan


With an approved loan, you are on the home-stretch towards closing. The lender will send closing documents to a title company that draws up paperwork and arranges for signing of documents. Once the documents have been signed and funding conditions have been met, the title is recorded and the process is complete. You are a proud owner of your new home, and the keys are yours!
