Subject: Should I refinance this ARM?
We currently have a 10 year lock interest only ARM that will adjust in 2017. We planned on refinancing between now and then. We currently have an offer to refinance to a fixed 30 at 4.875, We are currently at 6.875. The problem is the closing costs are close to $15,000, including over $3000 for mortgage insurance up front, along with $90 a month. My gut tells me no right now. We are paying a little principal every month. Our credit scores are over 700. I hate paying mortgage insurance, this is an FHA loan also. Looking for some advice on this. Thanks 19608

Those closing costs sound high; I can offer a 5% 30 yr. fixed for 1 point plus about $2500 in closing costs. Mortgage insurance is mandatory for an FHA loan. You can get rid of it by going conventional at the same rate IF you have 80% loan to value.
What is your loan amount?

Jack, we can somewhat assume the amount of the mortgage is about 170k.

How can anyone even charge 15k in closing costs! Ridiculous! That is Section 32 High Cost.

I think you should refinance now. Someone will be able to lower the closing costs. Jack says he could. I know I could so find a better lender to do it.
