Frequently Asked Questions


How can I calculate my refinance savings?

Take your closing cots into the calculation. This includes title, escrow, and origination fees. You also need to make sure you are looking at your interest savings, not payment savings.


How does a no-closing cost refinance work?

You still have closing costs, you just don’t pay them upfront. You can either finance them or choose a higher interest rate.
