At what point does it make sense to refinance or do a IRRRL?  I'm currently at 3.75%.

Another day, another heap of praise for Jon, Bri, and the rest of the team at Trident.  Slightly unsual situation for me -- looking to refi a first and second mortgage consolidated into a single jumbo loan under the VA. House purchased in 2007 and FINALLY to the point where the house value was worth more than the outstanding notes.  Jon fully understood my situation, and gave me mutliple options to consider, and  got me a fantastic rate for a jumbo within days of the initial discussuion. I looked into the situation with several other lenders, and none came close to the rate Jon got me or the way he treated me -- most were half a percent higher or more, were barely familiar with the VA process, and treated you as if you were wasting their time.  Not Jon!  ALWAYS available to take a call or get back to me quickly when I had a question.  Even called me a few weeks before the original Closing date to see if I could support SPEEDING UP the closing to an earlier date because he was concerned that some new rules for VA loans starting next month may affect my situation.   I always felt he was looking at for me the way a squadron bro would.

Bri and the rest of his team were on the spot and 4 steps ahead of the game on getting everything ready for Closing.  The result?  Closed on a refi within 30 days of when I originally contacted Jon, with a new consolidated jumbo loan that is saving me $1100 / month (yep, over $13K / year!)

Couldn't be happier with the whole process I experienced using Jon and his team at Trident.  Do yourself due diligence, and if looking for a lender check out at least a few places.  But do yourself a favor as well and make sure Jon and Trident are one of those places.  Pretty sure he'll beat any and all others you look into on price, service, and all around experience.  And I'll give him the ultimate compliment -- when / if my own kids look into purchasing a home (they're all in the 20s, so it will be soon) I'll simply hand them Jon's phone number, because a Dad always look out for his kids....

Just depends...you have to go down by .5% at a min to do an IRRRL.  If it's a cheap refi state we've done 3.25% no cost IRRRLs so you don't have a break even and you just save money.  If it's a more expensive state or you're paying the cost then I'd run a break even analysis off the costs and saving then compare it to how long you're planning on staying in the house to see if it makes sense.  If you're PCSing or selling in the not too distant future typically only the no cost IRRRLs make sense.  Best thing is just to do an app on our website or call me so I can run the numbers and see if it makes sense.  If we have an app in and I have talked to you then I can also hold it and watch the market for you then auto lock when we hit the right numbers.  You're never committed to anything on a refi  until 3 days after you close so there isn't any downside by locking or exploring your options.  If rates drop then we just cancel the first lock and set you up with a new lock so the first lock is just a hedge.

Thank you, Sir!  It was definitely a pleasure to work with you!  Helping good people save a ton of money is the best part of this job.  I have 4 kiddos so your Dad compliment definitely means a lot.  Enjoy the upcoming wedding and please let me know if you need anything in the future.

Have a great weekend!
Jon

Two mortgages on the SAME house (which I currently live in), because at the original purchase a single jumbo loan wasn't available to me.

@PilotWife2 how are refi rates looking on 15 yr VA loans?  I'm currently 2.7 yrs into a 30 yr VA loan from you at 3.75%.  Wondering if it makes more sense to refi on a 15 yr vs sell back the 2.7 yrs I'm already into the 30 yr.

I once again have nothing but amazing things to say about Jon and Trident Home Loans. I noticed that rates had improved dramatically since I bought a house in Florida last December. Jon called my up and offered me a fantastic refi deal. Thanks to him and the team at Trident, I had a quick and easy closing a few months later and am all set to save a ton of money!  I can't recommend them enough. They know the aviation side of things and helped me tremendously as I transitioned from Active Duty to the airlines while simultaneously buying a house. Awesome job guys!

Thank you!  Always enjoy helping a fellow Southwest guy save some money!  Even better with a lender credit to pay for everything without you having to come out of pocket or roll anything in.  I'll pass along the compliment to my processors.  

If anyone else wants to look at numbers just email:

Property address (let me know if it's your current home or a rental property)
Type of loan on it (VA, Conventional, FHA, etc)
For VAs - if you have VA disability or not
Current rate
Amount currently owed
Estimated credit score

Cheers!

Huge props to Jon and Trident on my VA refinance! Got 3.375 on a jumbo VA with a $1500 lender credit. We bought the house in December of 2018 and I got 4.625, when the market was near its peak. Jon reached out to me a few months before I was eligible to refinance to let me know I was on his radar and we worked a game plan to pull the trigger as soon as I met the VA time requirements.

The whole process was simple and cost me nothing but a couple emails and an hour at the title company. I also got to skip a payment and I should also get a refund of my escrow. Our monthly payment went down from $3260 to $2890, obviously a huge win!

I have used the guys at NBOKC for two previous loans and refinances and they have done a great job in the past. However, for this house, I have used Jon for the initial loan and the refinance and NBOKC couldn't touch their rates. When I reached out to NBOKC for the refinance initially, they offered 3.75 with zero points, or at 3.5 they wanted me to pay half a point. When I told them that Jon was offering 3.375 with a credit they simply said "nice!"

Overall I have had two positive experiences with Jon, and I will continue to use him in the future. I'm also a licensed real estate agent in Virginia, Maryland, and DC, and based on the results/rates Jon has delivered, I will continue sending any client I have to Jon.

Thanks Steven!  Glad we could get you a great deal and save your growing family some money!  It's always a pleasure to work with you! 

If any of you guys are looking for a great realtor in the DC area definitely get in touch with Steven!  He's a solid guy that I've worked with a few times now, father of 3 kiddos, former B-1 WSO and a AF reservist in DC.  He's on the #1 realtor team (Keri Shull) in the DC area so you're getting great service and working with professionals.  They also match or beat the realtor credits/incentives that USAA used to offer (they just ended it) and Navy Fed still does (for now at least).  

Hit me up if you want his personal contact info or I'm sure you can PM him on here.

Cheers!

Anyone have a good experience with a lender for an IRRRL loan...other than Trident or NBKC?

I used NBKC two mortgages ago and have had real issues with getting a return calls from them. Currently going through the process with Trident.....but they seem overwhelmed and not very interested in letting me know what/when the process will be complete. I really think that I need to "shop" them and see if I can get a better deal. Wife and I both have 750+ credit scores and no late payments.

Thanks in advance for any feedback or suggestions.

Sorry to hear you didn't receive the customer service expected at NBKC Bank.  I am known for my follow up and would love to help. I'm on vacation this week, but can connect you with another loan officer I helped mentor who has A+ customer service skills as well.   PM me if you would like her info.  Amy

Not sure who this is or what the issue is but feel free to give me a call anytime.  We are busy because of our great rates/service but not overwhelmed.  I'm always available to answer any questions.  We shoot to close our refi's towards the end of the month to save you on prepaid interest/closing costs and maximize your savings.  IRRRLs are mostly hands off loans so not much for you to do except save money.  I always have my cell but haven't got any calls regarding this.  Sorry...I'm standing by for you call.

Cheers!
Jon

Thank you Amy! A couple of years ago, I spoke with the NBKC VP of sales during my initial mortgage application and he assured me that my experiences with their two customer loan officers was atypical. He asked me if I wanted him to personally handle the matter or to pass it on to someone else. I asked that he handle it. An hour later I received a call from a loan officer that told me he was now assigned to my account. I asked what happened to the VP handling it personally....and was told he was too busy. Moved on to a different mortgage company.

Despite that experience, filled out an IRRRL online inquiry about a week ago.....still no return call.

Thank again for the offer of help.
