With RateGenius' auto refinancing services, individuals can replace an existing auto loan with a new one in order to take advantage of potential savings. Ultimately, RateGenius helps borrowers access a new loan with a lower rate, which can be used to immediately pay off an existing high-rate loan. While paying off the new loan over time, borrowers will accrue less interest than if they had kept their original high-rate loan. On average, customers who use RateGenius to refinance their loans see a $89 drop in their monthly payments.
In general, RateGenius refinances loans using a term length that’s equal to the number of months that remain on a customer’s existing loan. For example, if your existing loan has 48 months left, RateGenius will typically refinance your loan with a loan duration of 48 months. However, term lengths can be shortened or lengthened based on your particular needs.
Regarding offers provided by RateGenius, rates and additional fees can vary.
- Rates start at 2.99% APR.
- A title transfer fee is applicable when refinancing a vehicle and this fee is paid to your state.
- There is no application fee charged by RateGenius.
- A loan processing fee is charged by some lenders.
The amount you can borrow depends on the terms of your existing loan, which is information that you’ll be required to provide during the application process.
You can submit an application online or over the phone. You’ll be asked to provide basic information on your current loan, your vehicle and yourself. Then, RateGenius will work with its network of banks and credit unions to find the best financing options that are available to you. After that, the company will contact you by phone, email or standard mail (based on your preferences) to deliver the news.
Once you have an offer that you like, you can complete the refinancing process by reviewing and returning the appropriate loan documents either electronically or through the mail. After the completed documents are received, a check will be sent to your former lender and your vehicle's title will be transferred to the new lender.
