I'm on a 5/1 ARM that will change in July 2012. With rates being low, I decided to ReFi and move to a 30 year fixed. I was quoted a rate of 5.25 with no points on my non-conforming loan, overall it looks good. Now, my current lender suddenly reached out to me, and is willing to switch me to a fixed at a rate of 5.375, without the need for a ReFi. This means no ReFi fees, the interest I've paid is already being applied to my current loan, and I'm now on a 27 year loan. So my question: I'm having a tough time gauging which is the right way to go - should I ReFi or stick with my existing lender? BTW, already spoke to my existing lender, they're unwilling to negotiate on the rate they've quoted.<br/><br/>Thanks in advance!!<br \><br \>6 replies Thu, 13 May 2010 15:55:00 GMT http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/ReFi-or-go-with-rate-change-from-existing-lender/349717/ 2010-05-13T15:55:00Z what do i need to do to list my own home? http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/what-do-i-need-to-do-to-list-my-own-home/198129/ I am a licensed CA <a href="http://www.zillow.com">real estate</a> broker, but I have not been in the business for a few years now.

I really like casual places that don't skimp on creativity and are walkable, or near parking.
