When back to school expenses and your summer vacation leave you strapped for cash.
Now may be the right time to review your overall financial situation and discuss the possibility of consolidating your debts with your mortgage. Obviously, it is not a good idea to refinance your home in order to pay your shopping, vacation, clothing or grocery debts. However, it makes more sense to add your current debts to your mortgage than to continue paying 19% on your credit cards.
A standard mortgage in today’s market will only cost you less than 6.00%. Ideally, you can refinance your home to pay off all of your high-interest debts and then make a budget that will prevent you from ever going into debt again. Household debt is a major problem in North America. If you need to start afresh, the first step is to reduce your debt payments. Then, create a budget that you will follow, so you will never be in a position where you are forced to sell your home to pay off your debts.
