What is a Cash-Out Refinance
This is the only FHA option that allows borrowers to get cashback from a refinance. Borrowers get a larger loan amount than their current mortgage amount and get cash for the difference between the new loan amount and the amount owed on the home.
This loan is dictated by FHA guidelines but can vary by lender. Borrowers must have at least 20% equity in their homes and they must be the borrower’s primary residence. Borrowers must also be current on their mortgage payments for at least 12 months before qualifying for a refinance. Since the refinance loan amount is based on the home’s value, a new appraisal is required.
