All Time Low for Interest Rates
The good news is that interest rates are still at an all time low. If you have equity and would like to restructure debt, there may be a way out with a cash out refinance.
When it is mentioned to you that you need to do a `cash out refinancing’ it means that you need to borrow off the equity you have established in your home all these years. This is when you basically refinance your home and get some cash back in the way of a lump sum at the closing table.
Borrowing off of the equity in your home is done by many people and used for many different things.
Such as, home improvement projects, new cars, college expenses, family vacations, etc.
Of course, just like everything else in life, the process isn’t one of the easiest of things to do in the world. But if you take your time, do your homework, and find the right lender and loan officer, the task in front of you will be a lot less painful.
The mortgage industry is a very competitive one, so be sure to shop around and look for the deal that is best for you.
If you are not interested in doing the shopping around yourself, consider finding a mortgage broker to do the shopping for you.
A mortgage broker is a person who works as a liaison between the customer and the lender. It is the job of the mortgage broker to shop lenders for the consumer to find the mortgage program that best fits their needs and budget.
Most cash refinances are tax deductible and make sure you run it with your accountant during tax time.
