Research Your Options Before Taking the Next Step
Secure a lower interest rate, lower your monthly mortgage payment, or both.
If you already have a VA-backed home loan and want to lower your monthly mortgage payments, an interest rate reduction refinance loan (IRRRL) may be perfect for you. An IRRRL is one of the easiest loan products to apply and qualify for and comes with relaxed requirements compared to traditional mortgages. Refinancing allows you to replace your current loan with a new one under new terms, making your existing mortgage more affordable.
