Some common reasons people do a refinance include:
To lower interest rates by at least .5%
To switch to a fixed interest rate
To shorten the life of their loan
To tap into some of the equity you’ve built up in the home
To get better terms based on an improved financial situation (i.e. better credit, debt picture, etc)
Because they’re nearing retirement
To consolidate or change the terms of a second mortgage
Because they’re getting a divorce
Truthfully, it’s hard to be one hundred percent sure that you’re taking the right step, but there are things to consider that might help you decide.

Having identified your motivation for refinancing, it’s time to figure out what loan will help you reach that goal. In short, if you want to lower your monthly payment, pay off your loan faster, or save on interest over the life of the loan, a rate-and-term refinance may be the best option for you.
