If you can afford higher monthly payments, you may want a refinance mortgage to build equity in your home quickly.
You can do this by refinancing for a mortgage with a shorter term. You may refinance a standard 30-year mortgage for a 15-year mortgage, for example. You still will pay toward your interest on the loan, with the rest going to the principal. But with the shorter loan term, you will have a higher payment. A larger portion of the monthly payment goes to the loan amount.
