Cash-Out Refinance

A cash-out refinance takes advantage of the equity you’ve built in your home and gives you money back by refinancing into a larger mortgage. In other words, you are able to borrow more than you owe on your current mortgage and pocket the difference.
 

What you need to know about cash-out refinances

A cash-out refinance can help you feel financially empowered by allowing you to use the equity from your home to get cash back. You can use the money received to do whatever you'd like, including paying medical bills, consolidating or paying off debt, or even going on your dream vacation.

Cash-out refinances are ideal when the overall value of your home has increased. However, cash-out refinancing can also be done if you have paid a good amount of your current mortgage down and have built a significant amount of equity. A cash-out refinancing increases the principal owed on your mortgage.

If you do not need cash back and want to refinance to reduce your monthly mortgage rates, a rate-and-term refinance may be the answer.

If interest rates drop significantly, you may want to investigate refinancing. Most experts agree that if you plan to be in your house for at least 18 months and you can get a rate less than your current one, refinancing is smart if you do not pay more in fees than you will save in the time you will live in the house.
The qualification requirements for a refinance can vary depending on what mortgage you have. Generally, your name must be on the title of the home for a minimum length of time and your credit score must fall within the required guidelines.

If you have questions about whether you can benefit from a refinance, speaking with a local Loan Officer is a great place to start.
