Cashout Mortgage Refinance

Cash-out mortgage refinancing
Cash-out refinancing involves refinancing your current mortgage for more than you currently owe and pocketing the difference. If you have been paying down your mortgage for some time, then the principal is likely to be substantially lower than what it was when you first took out your mortgage. That build-up of equity will allow you to take out a loan that covers what you currently owe.  You can take the difference and use it for home renovations, second-property purchases, tuition, debt repayment or anything else that needs a significant amount of cash.
With interest rates 40 years record low  you may be able to get a more favorable interest rate for your refinanced mortgage.

However, if the interest rate offered for your refinanced mortgage is significantly higher than your current rate, this may not be a sensible choice.

Typically, homeowners are allowed to refinance up to 80 percent of their property’s value.
