Lowering Your Payments
Is your refinance primarily to lower your rate and monthly payments? If so, getting a low, fixed-rate loan could be a wise choice for you. Maybe you currently hold a higher rate fixed rate mortgage, or perhaps you hold an ARM — adjustable rate mortgage — where the interest rate can vary. Even if rates get higher later, unlike with your ARM, when you qualify for a fixed rate mortgage, you set the low interest rate for the life of your mortgage. If you are expecting to live in your home for about five more years, a loan with a fixed rate may be a particulary good choice for you. But if you do plan to sell your home more quickly, you should consider an ARM with a low initial rate to get lower mortgage payments.

Although your mortgage payments will probably be increased, you can be paying less interest; so your equity will rise up faster. But, you might be able to switch without much increase in your monthly payment if your long term mortgage was closed a while back, and the remaining balance is somewhat low. You could even pay less!
