First-Time Home Buyer Checklist

Having a checklist to guide you through the home buying process will ensure that you know where you are in the process and allows you to know what to expect.

A cash-out refinance is a type of mortgage refinance that takes advantage of the equity in your home and gives you cash in exchange for taking on a higher loan amount. In other words, with a cash-out refinance, you borrow more than you owe on your mortgage and pocket the difference.

Cash-out refinance is not a second mortgage, you pay off your old mortgage and replace it with your new mortgage.

For example, let’s say that you bought a home for $280,000 and you’ve paid off $80,000. You still owe $200,000 on your home, but you have $60,000 worth of medical bills that you want to payoff.

With a cash-out refinance, you can use the equity in your home to payoff all of those medical bills. By borrowing the $60,000 you need for medical bills, in addition to the $200,000 that you currently owe, your new mortgage will be $260,000 plus any applicable closing costs. Your lender gives you the $60,000 in cash a few days after closing.

By switching to a fixed rate loan, rates and payments remain constant. Monthly payments are predictable for the life of the loan. Stability makes budgeting easier.

There are certain cases, an ARM makes sense. It can offer a less expensive monthly payment to borrowers who don’t plan on staying in their home long term. It has lower rates and payments early in the loan term and allows borrowers to take advantage of falling rates without refinancing.

You can refinance to shorten the term of the mortgage. This offers two advantages: (1) you may build equity faster and (2) pay far less in total interest over the life of the loan.
