Refinance Loans

Refinance Loans are a great option if you are looking to take cash out, get a lower interest rate or change payment terms. These loans give you an opportunity to utilize the equity in your home. They also help you reset payment terms if you’re having trouble keeping up.

When refinancing one’s existing loan, it is possible that the consumer's total finance charges may be higher over the life of the loan.

What Is a Refinance Loan?

When refinancing one’s existing loan, it is possible that the consumer's total finance charges may be higher over the life of the loan.

A refinance loan allows you to replace your old mortgage with a new one. Your lender will have to reevaluate your creditworthiness as well as the equity in your home before deciding whether you qualify. The biggest changes that will take place if you refinance will be in the interest rate you pay and your payment schedule. The three main uses of a refinance loan are as follows.

Take Cash Out

When refinancing one’s existing loan, it is possible that the consumer's total finance charges may be higher over the life of the loan.

A cash-out refinance allows you to liquify your home's equity in the form of cash. Many people use this option when they need cash for a large expense. This option is usually only available if you have at least 20% equity in your home. 

Get a Lower Interest Rate

When refinancing one’s existing loan, it is possible that the consumer's total finance charges may be higher over the life of the loan.

Interest rates change with the flow of the economy. If those interest rates drop below your mortgage interest rate, refinancing your mortgage could be a good idea. Refinancing may be able to save you money and reduce your monthly payments. However, if the closing costs of the new mortgage are higher than your savings, then you’ll need to revaluate.

Change Payment Terms

When refinancing one’s existing loan, it is possible that the consumer's total finance charges may be higher over the life of the loan.

If you are having trouble keeping up with your monthly payments due to a change in your income, refinancing may be able to help. Mortgage refinancing means you are essentially getting a new mortgage and that also means you get to set new terms. You’ll have the ability to choose a longer repayment term, which may be able to help reduce your monthly mortgage costs.

What Are the Eligibility Requirements?

  • Generally, you should have held the title on your home for a minimum of 6 months (oftentimes more) before you refinance.
  • You need a credit score of at least 580, but some lenders will want it to be closer to 620.
  • You should have at least 20% equity in your home if you want to receive favorable terms. 
  • Proof of income.
  • Your debt-to-income ratio should be no more than 50% and preferably lower.
