How will refinancing help me?

Refinancing can help meYou have probably heard the word 'refinance'; in many different settings but may not have a clear understanding on it. That's okay! When you go to a dealer to refinance your auto loan, you are essentially renegotiating the terms of your loan. There are three main reasons why you may decide that refinancing is the best option for you:

  • If you've improved your credit recently, refinancing could help you lower the high interest rates that you had to take because of your bad credit.
  • If you've become or are close to becoming upside down in your loan, refinancing can give you the chance to change your payments so you're not paying more than the vehicle is actually worth at that time.
  • To reschedule your payment plan. Perhaps you had a shorter loan term, but that means larger payments. By changing your loan to a longer schedule, you can greatly lower how much you pay each month towards your loan.
