Los Angeles, CA (prHWY.com) April 23, 2010 - If the yield on the ten-year bond changes, so will the interest rates on home mortgage refinance loans. Taking into account the fact that this means mortgage refinance rates will soon be moving up again, there is likely no better time than now for a home mortgage refinance.

The main points to consider when you decide if you should get a home mortgage refinance at these all-time low mortgage refinancing rates are how long you intend on living at your home and how much you currently owe on your home mortgage. Refinance loans in this environment may be the most beneficial route for most homeowners. Some people just won't qualify because of bad credit or other issues.

Your home's equity is one of the most important factors to consider when planning a home mortgage refinance. Whether you plan on getting cash out of your home at the time of the mortgage refinance or not, you will need to have equity. This is why you will need to closely examine the mortgage refinance package that is being offered to you by the bank or mortgage company. Some lenders will add in closing costs and points to your mortgage. Some lenders will cover these costs. However, others will include these fees in your refinance, which can mean you will wind up with a much bigger balance on your mortgage, which in turn will decrease your equity.

A lot can also depend on the area where you live and the real estate market trends in the in your local. Some areas may have experienced an increase in property values, while many others have had a decrease in value. This means your equity in your home may have gone up, thus meaning you could be in a better position for a mortgage refinance. In a situation where the property values have gone down, you may no longer have enough equity for a home mortgage refinance loan. Many lenders look for 20% equity or more.

For example, say you have a $400,000 mortgage on a home that was worth $440,000 twelve months ago. You apply for a mortgage refinance but the new appraisal indicates the values of homes in your area are now only $420,000. Since your equity is now well over 90 percent, the chances of being able to refinance will not be good. Finally, mortgage refinance rates can also be affected by the amount of equity that you have in your home.
