Reasons to Refinance Your Mortgage:
If you've built up equity in your home, you may be able to obtain extra cash during the refinancing process to use for any purpose.
Switch Loan Types
If you have an adjustable-rate mortgage, you might be able to lock in a favorable rate with a new fixed-rate loan.
A shorter-term loan can help you pay off your debt more quickly, potentially saving you thousands in interest charges.
Mortgage Refinancing FAQs
You can shorten your term to 15 years, and pay your mortgage off early, or you can keep your payments low with and keep the 30 year term. We have no prepayment penalty, so you can have the best of both worlds with a 30-year mortgage but just pay extra on the principal each month. We'll work with you on structuring the loan.
Texas law says that your cash-out mortgage refinance must be limited to 80% LTV (loan-to-value). That means if your mortgage balance is 60% of your home value and you have earned 40% in home equity, the state of Texas will allow you to cash out 20% of your earned home equity.
You can use that equity for a lot of different reasons - debt consolidation, home improvements, financing a large expense and more. Talk to us about a Home Equity Line of Credit (HELOC) if you're interested in accessing your home's equity.
There is a 12-day cooling off period on all HELOCs and a three-day right of rescission after closing before the funds may be disbursed.
