Florida Home Refinancing
By Wendy Croix
Florida real estate markets remain strong while interest rates still remain low. Florida home owners who can knock a couple of percent points off their interest rates should consider refinancing.
The Florida Real Estate Market
Florida homeowners should know the fair market value of their homes. Getting market information in Florida is relatively easy, so owners can get an idea of the selling prices of homes similar to theirs in their neighborhoods.
The NAR website Realtor.com offers a gateway to local market information. By scrolling down to "About the National Association of Realtors," clicking on "State & Local Associations," and selecting "FL," owners can find real estate sales information on a county-by-county basis.
Local Florida Refinance Markets
Local refinance is driven both by local real estate markets and the owner's FICO scores. Owners with stellar credit can wheel and deal for the lowest mortgage rates available.
Like other refinance seekers, Florida owners can shop online and compare mortgage ratesregardless of their credit ratings. Nobody should say yes to refinance without comparison shoppingespecially in today's active and competitive refinance market.
