    Refinance & Home Equity

    Refinance & Home Equity

    Refinance

    A homeowner can choose to replace their current mortgage loan with a new one through refinancing. Reasons to consider a refinance are to get a lower interest rate, change the loan amount, or the term of the loan.

    You do not have to refinance with the lender who holds your current mortgage, and working with a broker will save you time shopping lenders and rates because we do it for you.

    THERE ARE THREE TYPES OF REFINANCE LOANS:

    1. 1. Rate and Term Refinance – This is for borrowers who only want to change the loan term (length of the loan) and the interest rate.
    2. 2. Cash-out Refinance – In addition to a change to the rate and loan term, a cash-out will allow for an increase in the loan amount
      enabling the borrower to walk away with cash.

      Example: The original loan on the property was $350,000, but the borrower requests
      a loan amount of $375,000. The borrower receives a check for $25,000 at the
      closing of the new loan.

    3. 3. Cash-in Refinance – A loan option for homeowners who want to reduce their interest rate, change the loan term and
      pay down the existing loan.

    Home Equity loans

    A home equity loan product differs from a refinance because it is a new loan on the property in addition to the existing mortgage. A homeowner is borrowing against the value of the property minus the existing mortgage loan.

    THERE ARE TWO TYPES OF RFINANCE LOANS:

    1. 1. Home Equity Line of Credit (HELOC) – This is for borrowers who only want to change the loan term
      (length of the loan) and the interest rate.
    2. 2. Home Equity Loan – Often referred to as a second mortgage, a home equity loan is a fixed-term loan that is paid out in full to the
      borrower at closing. Like a mortgage, the borrower makes monthly payments for the term of the loan.

    Interim and Multi-Property Financing

    For owners of residential and commercial property who need the flexibility of interim financing while multiple properties and
    being bought and sold.

    • Bridge Loans – Also referred to as a swing loan. It provides flexible, immediate financing to bridge a period
      between the sale of an existing property and the purchase of a new one. The term of a bridge loan is shorter than most loans,
      typically 6-18 months.
    • Cross-Collateralization Loans – Allows the borrower to use equity from a property currently owned towards
      the purchase of a new property. The lender will combine the two loans (existing and new property) into one payment
      as long as the amount is less than 75% of the total loan amount.
    • Investor Lending Programs – Commonly called a hard money loan. Borrowers often utilize this type of loan for buying and flipping
      real estate assets. Upfront fees and Interest rates are usually higher than a permanent, conventional mortgage.
