The more information you can provide, the more accurate your estimate will be.

Loan Amount

Enter the remaining balance of your current loan, and the balance of your new loan. The new loan balance can be lower or higher if you'd like to pay down the principal or take cash out.

Interest Rate

The calculator includes a sample rate. However, your actual rate will vary based on factors like credit score and down payment.

Term

Your term is the length of time you choose to pay off your loan (e.g., 30 years, 20 years, 15 years, etc.). Enter the term of your current loan, then choose a new term for your new loan.

Origination Year

Enter the year you got your current loan. Our refinance calculator takes into account the year that you would have paid off your original loan to better calculate your savings over time.

Refinance Fees

Like all home loans, a refinance loan requires closing costs to pay for things like the loan origination fee, title, and appraisal. You can roll the fees into the new loan in the advanced options.

Cash Out

If you have enough equity in your home, you may be able to take cash out during a refinance. You can enter the amount you want to take out under "Cash out" in the advanced options.
