Is Mortgage Refinance The Best Option For You?

The Federal Government's debt is way out of control and the budget is out of balance. And to address this problem, they are considering about ending the Mortgage interest tax deduction to bring in more revenue, and balance the budget the government needs to both cut down on spending

The way things are right now, home owners can count the interest they pay on home loans of primary residences as an itemized deduction. This deduction usually puts them above the standard deduction levels and allows homeowners to save money on taxes.

With the recent failure of the government in housing market, thy have come to think that somehow subsidizing housing for every aspiring home owners is not a good idea. The said system is just encouraging people to have debts

With the end to the mortgage interest deduction, how people consider their home loans might change. So, without this mortgage interest deduction, there would be more reasons in which to pay home loans off since some investors refuse to pay properties off because they need the tax deductions.

Recently, mortgage interest rates are really ultra-low that if potential home owners qualify for a refinance, they can have a refinance up to 15 year mortgages for only a few hundred dollars more every month than their current 30 year mortgages. Although this may add to the monthly expense, a 15 year mortgage will allow them to save tens of thousands in interest, and ultimately lower down the term of the loan. Thus, a homeowner may be surprised to find out that he or she is already living payment free.

While the mortgage interest deduction is a nice way to save homeowners on taxes, eliminating it will actually be better for encouraging net worth in the long run. Homeowners will be more motivated to eliminate debt which will give them more disposable income to 'stimulate the economy' in the future.

It's a great time to refinance your Utah mortgage loans. If the government isn't going to reward you for paying interest, you might as well do all you can to get rid of it.
