A rate and term refinance allows you to change your interest rate or your loan term. When interest rates drop, it's a good idea to look into a rate and term refinance loan to see if you could lower your own interest rate or reduce the time left on your mortgage loan. Both Conventional and FHA loans can be refinanced this way.
