30-Year Fixed Refinancing Rates
The current average interest rate for a 30-year refinancing is 3.15%, down 1 basis point from this time last week. (A basis point equals 0.01%.) One reason to refinance to a shorter-term 30-year fixed loan is to lower your monthly payment. This makes 30-year refinances good for people who are struggling to make their monthly payments or just want a little more breathing room. However, keep in mind that interest rates are typically higher compared to a 15 or 10-year refinance, and you will pay off your loan at a lower rate.
15-year fixed rate refinancing
The average rate for a 15-year fixed refinancing loan is currently 2.41%, down 1 basis point from a week ago. With a fixed 15-year refinancing, you have a larger monthly payment than a 30-year loan. On the other hand, you save money in interest, because you pay off the loan earlier. The 15-year refinancing rates are typically lower than the 30-year refinancing rates, allowing you to save even more in the long run.
10 year fixed rate refinancing
The current average interest rate for a 10-year refinancing is 2.40%, down 3 basis points from a week ago. A 10-year refinance typically has the highest monthly payment of all refinancing terms, but the lowest interest rate. A 10-year refinancing can be a good deal because you can save on interest in the long run. But you should confirm that you can afford a higher monthly payment by evaluating your budget and overall financial situation.

How to find the best refinancing rate?
When searching for refinancing rates online, it is important to remember that your particular financial situation will affect the rate you are offered. While current market conditions will be a factor, your specific interest rate will depend largely on your application and credit history.
To get the best interest rates, you typically need a high credit score, a low credit utilization ratio, and a history of consistent and timely payments. To get your personalized refinancing rates, speak with a mortgage professional, as the rates you qualify for may differ from the rates advertised online. Also, don’t forget to factor in possible fees and closing costs.
You should also know that in recent months many lenders have set stricter requirements when it comes to approving loans. As such, you may not qualify for a refinancing — or a low interest rate — if you don’t have solid credit.
Before applying for a refinancing, make your application as strong as possible to get the best rates available. If you haven’t already, try to improve your credit by checking your credit reports, using credit responsibly and managing your finances carefully. Also, be sure to compare offers from multiple lenders to get the best price.
When to transfer a mortgage?
Most people refinance because the market interest rate is lower than current rates or because they want to change the term of their loan. While interest rates have been low in recent months, when deciding whether a refinancing is right for you, you should look at more than just market interest rates.
A refinancing may not always make financial sense. Consider your personal goals and financial circumstances. How long do you plan to stay in your house? Are you refinancing to lower your monthly payment, pay off your home sooner — or for a combination of reasons? Also keep in mind that closing costs and other fees may require an upfront investment.
Note that some lenders have tightened their requirements since the start of the pandemic. If you don’t have a solid credit score, you may not qualify for the best interest rate. If you can get a lower interest rate or pay off your loan earlier, refinancing can be a good move. But first, carefully weigh the pros and cons to make sure it’s a good fit for your situation.
