How to refinance a jumbo loan

Refinancing a jumbo mortgage involves virtually the same process as refinancing a conforming loan. Here are the key steps:

  1. Determine if it’s the right time to refinance. Most borrowers refinance to get a lower interest rate. If you can’t get a lower rate now due to the rate environment, your credit score or both, it might make more sense to hold off.
  2. Shop around for quotes. If you’ve decided now’s a good time to refi your jumbo loan, compare refinance offers from at least mortgage lenders. The lender of your current mortgage might provide special pricing on a refinance, but you don’t have to work with that lender if you’ve found a better deal.
  3. Check the requirements. Although you already have a mortgage, you’ll still need to qualify to refinance it. This includes meeting the lender’s minimum credit score and equity requirements, as well as ensuring you can afford the closing costs

Factors considered in jumbo refinance rates

As with the interest rate on any type of mortgage, jumbo refinance rates are based on a number of factors. These include:

  • Your credit score and finances
  • How much home equity you have
  • Prevailing market rates
  • Your location

The rates on all kinds of mortgages have trended upward, so you’ll likely pay more now to refinance to a new jumbo loan. One upside, however: Jumbo loan rates are still somewhat lower than conforming loan rates, according to Bankrate data — a recent trend that could give bigger mortgage borrowers a slight break on costs.

Should you refinance your jumbo loan?

As you consider whether it makes sense to refinance a jumbo loan, assess your current situation. Compare your current interest rate with the new rate you could receive on the jumbo loan. If the new rate is significantly lower, you might be able to save money each month by refinancing. Doing so can improve your cash flow and potentially mean you pay less interest over the life of your loan.

You could also refinance your jumbo loan to take advantage of the equity you’ve built up in your home with a cash-out refinance. Perhaps you’d like to remodel your home or meet some other important financial goal. With a cash-out refi, you could get the money you need at a more reasonable rate compared with a personal loan or credit card.
