Hi Simon,

Here is the breakdown on my first home purchase that I am not living in (rent both floors out right now):

- 2 Family Home purchase of $280,000 at a 3.5% down payment.
- Current outstanding mortgage balance = $253,000
- I generate roughly $800 profit/rental income from the home.
- Current appraised value = $415,000

With all that information, do you think it is still worth refinancing, if so, please help me paint a vivid picture.

All in all what is your advice. Is it all worth it?

Thanks in advance for your help!
