For Your Home Refinancing Needs, Look to Aloha Pacific FCU


Hawaii homeowners: Have you refinanced yet?

To those of you who answered “yes,” congratulations! You have taken advantage of historically low mortgage interest rates.

To those of you who answered “no,” we have another crucial question: Why not?

Now is the time to refinance, as mortgage interest rates continue to be at historical lows, but are slowly inching up. In fact, financial experts expect all interest rates to continue to rise as the Federal Reserve tapers its infusion of money into the American economy.

The mortgage specialists at Aloha Pacific Federal Credit Union are ready to help, with competitive rates and personalized service that’s second to none.

Aloha Pacific FCU’s experts can tell you if refinancing is right for you, and can walk you through the many steps to complete a refinance.

Why should you refinance?

• The lower your interest rate, the less you’ll be paying each month.

• The lower your interest rate, the less interest you’ll have paid over the life of the loan.

• If you currently have an adjustable-rate mortgage, in which your payments would eventually increase, you could refinance into a fixed-rate mortgage.

• You could potentially shorten the term of your mortgage by re-financing from a 30-year loan to a 15-year loan.

Keep in mind that refinancing does require certain fees, such as closing costs, loan points, escrow fees and insurance – all of which would affect the amount of your monthly mortgage. Some fees may be tax deductible; consult your tax adviser.

When you’re ready to refinance, APFCU’s mortgage specialists will be standing by to assist, always with your best interests in mind.
