How Much Can You Save with a Home Refinance?

Ever since the Federal Reserve dropped interest rates in 2020, there’s been a new wave of hype around getting your mortgage refinanced. And for good reason too.

Last year, the annual average mortgage rate was between 2.61–3.11%—an all-time low. With the Fed saying it won’t raise interest rates until 2023, even more folks are wondering, “Should I refinance my mortgage?”

This is a question you should be asking yourself as well.

Lower interest rates are great and all, but what do they really mean for you? And what does a lower interest rate mean for your wallet?

Saving with a Home Refi

What would you do with an extra $300 each month? Treat yourself to some new clothes? A fancy dinner? Or maybe pay off some bills?

Right now, more than 15 million Americans are in the “sweet spot” to refinance their mortgage and save an average of $300 per month. That adds up to more than $4.5 billion (with a “B”) that homeowners could save.

You could be one of them. And you won’t be alone.

Nearly two-thirds of all mortgage applications this year are for home refinances. Some of that has to do with a strong real estate market and low inventory of home listings to purchase. But it’s also because Americans are taking advantage of historic low rates and refinancing their homes.
