What Is Cash-Out Refinancing?

Turn a portion of your home’s equity into cash.

Cash-out refinancing lets you turn a portion of your home’s equity into money you can use however you want. It can be a solution to finally paying off credit cards, consolidating debt, affording college or remodeling your home.

How does it work?

Equity is the difference between your home’s value and how much you owe on your loan.

If your home’s value is $300,000
And you still owe $200,000
Your equity equals $100,000

With cash-out refinancing you can receive a portion of the $100,000 in cash. For example, if you choose to take $25,000 of this equity in cash, your refinanced mortgage will look like this:

Equity you turned into cash: $25,000
Plus what you still owe: $200,000
Your new mortgage: $225,000

It’s important to remember your new loan will be greater than your current loan. However, even with cash-out refinancing, it’s not uncommon for borrowers to receive a lower interest rate, or a shorter term, both of which offer opportunities for new savings over your current loan.

You can use the money however you like.
