The process of refinancing a home means taking out a new loan to replace a current one. Homeowners who are currently paying off a home loan can apply and be approved for refinancing.
By refinancing, you can access the equity of your home through a Cash-Out Refinance option. You can also refinance to obtain a new, lower interest rate through a Rate & Term Refinance option. Refinancing also allows homeowners to pay off their mortgage more quickly if they desire to do so by changing their loan term from a 30-year mortgage term to a 15-year mortgage term.
If you’re a homeowner and find it difficult to make high mortgage payments, refinancing might be something to consider.
We often recommend refinancing to our clients who have good credit scores or sufficient income / home equity. The higher the score, the likelier you will be approved for a new loan. Once you have been accepted for a new loan, try to avoid using your credit cards excessively to help prevent your credit score from changing while your application is being reviewed.

Leif Boyd – Did a great job with one of my buyers that I referred to him so they could finance their first home. Through the entire process he was there to answer their questions and keep things moving. I would recommend any first time buyer that is looking for a FHA loan to call him because he is one of the few lenders that I have met in the past 2 years that actually cares about the client more than himself.Tim Taggett
