Should I refinance my mortgage?

If your property is located in Pennsylvania, you might be a good candidate for a mortgage loan refinance. Consider these factors to help you decide if refinancing is right for you:

  • Current mortgage rate – Lowering your rate can have a significant impact on your monthly payment.
  • Mortgage term – Depending on how many years you have left on your current mortgage, refinancing can enable you to shorten the term to 20, 15 or even 10 years, saving you in interest paid.
  • Cash out – You may be able to tap into your home’s equity when you refinance. You could make home improvements or pay down debt with the equity from a cash out refinance.
  • Current loan – Do you have an Adjustable Rate Mortgage (ARM)? Refinancing to a fixed-rate loan at a low rate would offer the security of knowing your exact payment amount every month.
  • Eliminate Private Mortgage Insurance (PMI) – You may be able to eliminate PMI depending on the equity in your home at the time of refinance.

Our mortgage Process

After you submit your application, a PSECU Mortgage Consultant will review it and answer any questions you may have. During the process, our Mortgage Consultants will request more detailed financial information from you. After closing, we’ll service your loan through the life of the mortgage. On average, it takes 45 – 60 days from application date to closing date.
We lend to properties that are: 
  • Located in the state of Pennsylvania
  • Recorded with PSECU listed as first lien holder. The property secures your mortgage loan.
  • Titled after purchase in the name(s) of individual(s), not a trust
  • Owner-occupied homes, vacation homes, or residential investment properties with one, two, three, or four units
  • Condominiums or residences within a Planned Unit Development (PUD) that meet certain criteria. Please contact our Mortgage Consultants for more information.

We do not lend to properties that are:

  • Single-wide manufactured homes
  • Timeshares
  • Not in acceptable marketable condition
  • Residential investment condo or manufactured homes
  • Located outside Pennsylvania
Fixed Rate:
When applying online, you will have an opportunity to lock your interest rate. If you choose to let the rate float, the interest rate will not be locked until you notify us that you want to lock it. Some mortgage products require the assistance of PSECU staff. If that's the case with your mortgage application, you'll have the opportunity to lock your rate when you speak with us. We do not offer rate locks on Pre-Approval applications.

Adjustable Rate:
You will receive the lowest rate in effect from the time of application up to the time of approval.

 


You may request to waive an escrow account if the loan-to-value (LTV) is 80% or lower, taxes and insurance have been paid timely in the past, and you have the ability to pay them on your own.
