Lowering Your Payments
Is your refinance primarily to lower your rate and monthly payments? In that case, a low, fixed rate loan may be your best option. Perhaps you now hold a higher rate fixed rate mortgage, or maybe you hold an ARM — adjustable rate mortgage — in which the rate of interest can vary. Unlike the ARM, your low fixed-rate mortgage will stay at a certain low rate for the life of the mortgage loan, even if interest rates rise. If you are expecting to live in your home for at least five more years, a loan with a fixed rate may be a particulary good fit for you. But if you do expect to move more quickly, you will need to consider an ARM with a low initial rate to get lower monthly payments.

It could be you're dreaming of a cruise; you have to pay tuition for your college-bound child; or you are planning some home improvements.

Consolidating Your Debt
Maybe you'd like to cash out some of the home equity (cash out) to use toward other debt. If you have the equity in your home for it, paying off other high interest debt (like car loans, credit cards, student loans, or home equity loans) means you can possible save hundreds of dollars a month.
Paying it off Faster
Are you planning to fatten your equity faster, and pay off your mortgage loan sooner? Consider refinancing to a short-term loan, often a 15-year mortgage. Your mortgage payments will likely be more than with the long-term mortgage loan, but the pay-off is: that you will pay quite a bit less interest and will build up equity quicker. But, you may be able to switch without a higher monthly mortgage payment if your longer term mortgage was closed a while ago, and the balance remaining is low. You may even pay less!
