You’ve surely heard of refinancing, but what exactly does it mean, and why would you want to do it? To put it simply, refinancing means that you are looking into options that will allow you to pay off one loan with the money you receive from another loan using the same property as collateral. There are a couple of different ways you can refinance, commonly known as refi (short for refinancing) and cash out refi.
Refinancing is a big step and should not be taken lightly. However, if your particular situation calls for it, you wouldn’t regret it in the slightest. There are several reasons you should consider refinancing, including:
- If you find a new loan that has lower interest rates than the one you currently have
- If you have an unstable ARM loan that can be changed to a fixed-rate loan
- If you have two mortgages and you would like to consolidate
- If your current situation renders you unable to meet your current mortgage payments
If you meet any of these conditions or believe that refinancing will relieve your currently stressful situation, refinancing may be the best option for you. It could potentially save you a world of emotional anxiety and financial hurt.
Cash Out Refi
A cash out refi is a great option if you really need some extra cash for a specific purpose. It allows you to refinance your current mortgage for an amount higher than you currently owe and then keep the difference in cash.
Sounds too good to be true, right? Well, it’s not as difficult to attain as you might think, but there are some conditions. Your bank probably won’t give you cash out just because you want to go on a shopping spree, and they certainly won’t give it to you if you have bad credit. In order to do a cash out refi, you need a good reason, such as:
- Home improvements that will increase the value of your home
- Pay for college tuition
- Pay off student loans
- Pay off credit card debt
- Buy a second home
- Fuel an emergency savings account
- Pay for medical bills
Any of these situations require a good chunk of money, and they provide a designated place for your money to go, which is what your bank is going to need in order to grant you the money.
