Debt consolidation refi loans reduce your debt sooner by lowering the interest rate on your principal. So for the same amount you are paying now, you can trim years off your payment schedule. At the same time, you can further reduce your mortgage costs by finding low rate refinancing.

Cashing Out Equity Can Save You Money

By securing your debt consolidation loan with your home’s equity, you qualify for some of the cheapest financing available to you. So you can trade in your double digit credit card rates for single digit mortgage rates. To get the most out of your cash out refi, decide if you want one or two mortgages. By refinancing your original mortgage, you qualify for lower overall rates. But if you have good rates now, it might be better to take out a second mortgage. Even with higher rates, having separate mortgages could be cheaper for you.

(Best Syndication) While most people worry about their credit card information falling into the wrong hands, there is a more ominous problem out there: Identity. Your identity is a collection of information that your doctor, insurance company, bank, credit card companies, employer and others have on file. These companies and people will have your social security number, your address and your date of birth. One misstep by any of these entities and you could be in big trouble.

Once a crook gets your identity, they will usually want to add a new address to your credit. This way they can get the bills for their new credit cards sent to them and not you. They can use your identity and sign up for credit cards without you even knowing it. This was done once to me when they purchased a cell phone in my name.
