What is Cash-Out Refinancing?
With a cash-out refinance loan, you refinance your current mortgage for more than you currently owe, then cash out the difference.
Why Cash-Out Refinance?
Cash-out refinance loans provide the flexibility and variety so that individuals can meet a diverse range of needs, such as:
- Obtaining cash for home improvements or major purchases
- Paying off high interest rate debt (credit cards, auto loans, etc.)
Moreover, all related closing and financing costs and prepaid items can be rolled into the new loan amount, enabling greater cash flow potential for the borrower.
In addition to all the above-mentioned features, cash-out refinance loans may also be customized to allow the borrowers in special circumstances to use the proceeds of the refinance transaction to buy out the equity of a co-owner.
How to Get a Cash-Out Refinance Loan
Cash-out refinance loans are quite common these days for the number of advantages it offers. Individuals seeking a cash-out refinance loan are advised to pre-qualify before applying. This helps them understand how much they can borrow and pre-qualification is usually done over the telephone or online via the Web.
