Current financing: 3.62% on a 30 year loan, 306 months (25.5 years) left on current balance of 264,000. Current payment is $1,313 a month with total payments to be $401,909. Home located in Chicago Suburbs
Called my local broker who I originally got the loan through and this was his offer on current rates:
Proposed New Mortgage Amount $264,000.00
- Proposed 30 Year Rate 3.000% --new payment would be $1,113; Total savings: $1,217
Proposed 25 Year Rate 3.000% --new payment would be $1,251 ; Total savings $26,334
Proposed 20 Year Rate 2.875% --new payment would be $1,447 ; Total savings $54,468
Proposed 15 Year Rate 2.625% --new payment would be $1,775 ; Total savings $82,247
Are these rates good? I haven't shopped around yet and wondering if I should.
