Need a Cash Out Refinance Loan?
A cash out refinance loan can be a great tool to solve some of your financial issues if you have enough equity in your property and if it makes sense to do so. Basically how this works is that you refinance your existing mortgage balance plus whatever cash you need on top of that into a new first mortgage. Your original mortgage gets paid off in the transaction and you start over with a new loan and new terms but you get your cash in hand when you make settlement. Usually cash out refinance loan transactions can be done within 30 to 45 days.
