Uses For An FHA Cash-Out Refinance Loan

If you are thinking about applying for a cash-out refinance loan, you likely have some ideas about what you want to use the money for. FHA Cash-Out refinance loans allow the homeowner to convert equity built up in the home and take it out in cash. The amount of cash back is determined once the original loan and the closing costs of the new loan have been dealt paid.   How to use the money? Some want an FHA cash-out refi to do home improvements with no restrictions on how the cash gets used. These loans don’t have the same restrictions on how the funds are used when you compare them to the FHA 203(k) Rehabilitation loan which allows a refinance and improvements to be made using loan funds.

Intro To FHA Refinance Loans

The year 2020 has brought with it historic low interest rates on conventional mortgages and FHA home loans alike. Those low rates have many more homeowners thinking about their refinance loan options and how they can take advantage of some of the lowest interest rates in recent history.

Refinancing can also result in cash back to the borrower once the original loan has been paid off and the associated closing costs dealt with. Not every refinance loan offers this, but FHA loan programs do include cash-out options. If you need to refinance your home loan because you want cash out, your loan will | more...

 
Conventional Loan Interest Rates Make History, FHA Loan Rates Still Incredibly Low

Refinance Loan Options: Choose Wisely!

Mortgage loan interest rates have been on a wild ride in 2020. Coronavirus, incredible lows for rates, market volatility, and much more have all created an environment that feels as unpredictable as mortgage rates have seemed. And the rollercoaster isn’t over yet. Finance blogs are still reporting as late as June 1, 2020, that refinance loan demand has actually grown larger than the demand for new purchase mortgages. That isn’t shocking in an era where rates have, at least on paper, dipped below the three percent range at times (your experience will definitely vary). Those with the ability to refinance into a lower interest rate save money over the course of the mortgage, assuming these borrowers pay on the mortgage over a long period of time.

FHA Mortgage Loan Issues: "Identity Of Interest"

FHA Purchase and Refinance Loan Interest Rate Trends And Your New Home

FHA home loans have a low minimum required down payment of 3.5%, which makes them perfect for both experienced homeowners and first-time homebuyers alike. With an FHA mortgage it’s possible to purchase or refinance a fixer-upper (with an FHA 203(k) rehab loan), buy or refinance a condo, mobile home, existing construction houses, and you can even apply to have a home built for you on your own lot with an FHA One-Time Close construction loan. As we head into the second month of 2020, we are reminded that 2019 was the best year for mortgage loan interest rates in almost a decade and the trends that kept rates low last year continue to exert some influence as new issues also conspire to push mortgage rates lower.

FHA Refinance Loans And Current Interest Rates

FHA Refinance Loans And Current Interest Rates

Is your mortgage payment too high? Need to refinance to bring down the monthly cost? Recent headlines about mortgage loan interest rates have contained the word “refinance” a lot lately; world events including the Wuhan virus, impeachment proceedings, and other news have conspired to help push mortgage rates lower. Those things themselves do not directly influence mortgage loan interest rates, but investor behavior DOES. And because of that investor behavior, we have seen FHA loan interest rates move significantly lower. Some writers refer to that move in terms of historical context. “Mortgage Rates At Three Year Lows!” screamed some headlines in early 2020. One consequence of those low rates? A surge in refinance loan applications as consumers rush to take advantage of the lower interest rates to save money on | more...
