Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)
What's the difference between a cash-out and a HELOC?

A HELOC or home equity line of credit, is a mortgage in second position.  That means they are usually riskier loans and thus have variable rates or higher fixed rates.  They can also be closed at any time for any reason, and have loan to value caps.  A cash-out refinance pays off your old mortgage and gets you the cash for the difference.

How much cash do I get after refinancing?

The cash out amount is the difference between your appraised value, your payoffs of your old mortgage, any debts you are paying off and your closing costs.

What is equity?  How can it help me get cash?

Equity is your ownership stake in your home.  It is the difference between what your home would sell for, or the appraised value minus what you owe.  You can use that equity to consolidate high interest debt and thus lower your overall interest rate.

How much does it cost to refinance?  Do I pay costs out of pocket?

You will pay standard closing costs like any other mortgage.  However unlike when you bought your home, you can use your equity to pay these costs.  In general, the only out of pocket fee would be your appraisal.

Do I Qualify?

To qualify for a mortgage, lenders typically require that you have a debt-to-income ratio of "43/49." This means that no more than 43% of your total monthly income (from all sources, before taxes) can go toward your new mortgage payment, and no more than 49.99% of your monthly income can go toward your total monthly debt (including your mortgage payment). VA and FHA loans even allow for higher debt ratios on a case by case basis.
