Taking the Stress Out of Refinancing a Home

This post is created in partnership with Refily, a new home refinance lender comparison tool with the goal to take the stress out of home refinance

Taking care of our home is not only an important investment in our family’s health and well-being on so many levels (which we talk about here all of the time!) but managing the investments in our home has always been a key part of our family’s overall financial strategy.

As I’ve written in several of my books, the decisions you make for (and in) your home can have a remarkable impact on your health and stress levels. We’ve owned seven (and now eight!) homes since we were first married. Whether we were remodeling, buying, selling or obtaining a new home loan, we have always tried to be conscientious of the decisions we make and consider how each one would impact not only the quality of our day to day life but our future.

Earlier this spring we thought we were going to be staying in our home for at least a couple more years. It seemed like the least stressful option at the time, so we decided to check into the possibility of refinancing our mortgage to take advantage of the low interest rates. But getting started on the refi process was so overwhelming!

Taking the Stress Out of Refinancing a Home

We knew that we might not stay in this home forever, so I just wanted to make sure we were making the right financial decision and would be saving the most amount of money short and long term. Unfortunately I found it extremely stressful and confusing to not only navigate decisions that were best for us, but to be able to find and compare all of the rates and options and offers across lenders. Wow, was that ever difficult! I would abandon the search for weeks at a time because it was just too frustrating.

We eventually decided to just move instead of refinancing, ha! While moving is always a stressful experience, the refinancing process was right up there! It shouldn’t be so difficult.


I recently learned about a new option for homeowners who are interested in refinancing. Refily’s goal is to take the stress out of home refinance. That’s exactly what I needed, I sure wish it had been available when we were going through this process! If you’ve thought about refinancing but aren’t sure of the best way to get started, Refily will help simplify the lender comparison process. They will get you set up with all the tools, information and lender matching technology you need to feel confident that you’re able to research and compare multiple lenders, as well as making the most informed decision for your family and finances.


  • They are not your traditional lender comparison marketplace.
  • Utilize their calculators to get a clearer picture and better understand your potential savings.
  • Fill out their questionnaire for curated lender recommendations.
  • Their innovative matching algorithm runs the submitted information in their lender marketplace to find the perfect match for you.
  • You have the power to compare estimated rates, as well as additional information, with up to 2 additional lender matches.
