You may own a house, which you have bought with a lot of efforts in the process – mortgages, credits, insurance. Surely, the volume of the bills always grows up – both qualitatively and quantitatively. But, there must be a way to stop this increasing pressure of bills, other than shifting on to a better job. Here is a good alternative that you can use. In fact it is more sensible if your ultimate motive is to save money in long run by paying your bills and controlling other expenses judiciously.
What you can do here is, refinance your mortgage, and use the extra money that you get from your house in paying off any outstanding or dues that you have accumulated and not getting the money to shell out the bills.
In bank or loan terminology, it is known as “Home Refinance with Bill Pay” or “Combo Loan”. House and property are two of the best friends that can help you as the day progresses. More often than not the valuation of a property or house is bound to increase over time. Refinancing is done when you are getting a lower interest rate than your previous rate, and thus saving some money, on the way. A good refinancing is the one when the new rate is at least 1.5% lesser than the earlier one.
What happens in the refinancing is that the Financing Company, from which you are taking the loan, pays off your mortgage and also gives checks to the creditors to which you are liable. Such companies also have cash back policies, which are not too favorable most of the time for you. What you have to remember is that you are saving money a lot by the help from such companies, but they also know you are in a position to pay off your debts, which you are about to incur from them.
For example, suppose there is a couple, who bought a house 8 years ago. The house needed a lot of repair, so the price they paid was low. It was a two-storied house. They removed all the torn and old wallpapers that were in place, and decorated those with new papers. They repaired the whole of the insides with colors of their choice. Re-roofed the porches. They also added some new appliances and sold; they also sold the garage. All the remodeling cost them some money and they also saved some from the garage sale.
Now as they will go to refinance the house and they will find out that the refinance price is more than the price they had to shell out when they purchased it 8 years back. The duo now can use that money to pay off their various debts they incurred over the years. In fact they can receive the price of a much newer home.
Thus with a simple refinancing, the business loans can be paid off, credit card bills cleared, some debtors can also be given their payments and still you can save some money to keep in the bank.
