Consolidate your debt. Save on interest.
Get cash out.
If you want to get out from under high interest rate charges from credit cards, student loans, or other forms of debt, then a cash-out refinance might be the solution for you. Consolidating your debt by refinancing allows you to put existing debt into your mortgage—typically at much lower interest rates. The result is a single interest rate and single monthly payment. Generally, you’ll end up paying less each month than you do now, paying all the bills separately.
How much can you increase cash flow by consolidating debt? An example.
Although every debt consolidation refinance is different, here’s an example to give you an idea of how much you can save.
|Tom and Nancy bought their first home for $753,000 using a first and second mortgage. To make room for their growing family, the couple plans to move to a larger home within the next five years. To maximize their selling price when the time comes, Tom and Nancy invested $55,000 in renovations – which they paid for with their credit cards. Although enjoying the earned frequent flier miles, they have now maxed out their
The couple, whose home was valued at $1.1 million in the current market, turned to Guarantee Mortgage to see if they could consolidate the debt, eliminate credit card balances, and open up monthly cash flow.

|(10 year, interest-only 6.25%)*||(5/1 adjustable rate, 3.25%)*|
|First mortgage: $676,000||$3,521||$2,794|
|Second mortgage: $77,000
(30 year, fixed, 7.05%)*
|Credit card debt: $55,000||$ 989||$0|

Did they take the loan? You bet! Tom and Nancy knew they’d be moving within the next five years, so they were comfortable with both the five-year, fixed-rate period as well as the terms of the adjustable rate cap should it take a bit longer to sell the home.
What mattered was eliminating the credit card debit and maximizing monthly cash flow. The refinance allowed them to accomplish both goals.
