How much can you take out on refinance?

We have options for just about all loan amounts up to $1,000,000.

Can you do cash out refinance on FHA loan?

Yes! FHA loans also qualify for our 85% cash out refinance program.

Are interest rates higher for cash out refinance?

Unfortunately, yes. Cash out refinances price out a bit higher than say a rate/term refinance.

What credit score do I need to qualify?

We require a 580 credit score or higher. If you don’t have a 620, we can offer advice on how to improve your credit score!

Are there any other qualifications?

Typically we require 6 months in the home and 15% equity.

Is cash out refinance considered income?

No. This is not ‘free money’.  You are basically trading your original loan for a bigger one and taking the difference as cash to use how you choose. Whether you put it back into your house in renovations or use it to pay of other debt, you will still be paying that money back to the new loan, with interest.

Do you allow cash out refinances on investment properties?

Yes! Give us a call today to find out more details!
