FHA Streamline Refinance

This simplified refinance option is for homeowners with an existing FHA mortgage. It requires less documentation than typically required and is usually completed quickly. 
 

What you need to know about FHA Streamline refinances

Do you have an existing FHA mortgage? The FHA Streamline refinance program may be the answer for you. This program gets its name because it allows homeowners to refinance their FHA loan to a lower rate more quickly than a typical refinance. The amount of documentation required is reduced and you often do not need an appraisal done, saving you time and money. 

It's important to note that you won't get more than $500 cash at closing, so if you are looking to get more cash back you may want to look into a cash-out refinance. Speaking to a Loan Officer about your goals is a great place to start.

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.
 
Homeowners rarely need to make a down payment when they refinance their home loan.
