A VA cash-out refinance gives you the flexibility to use your home’s equity to access cash for home improvements, emergencies, high-interest debt repayment, or any other expenses.
An IRRRL, or interest rate reduction refinance loan, is a quick way to refinance with fewer requirements than a cash-out refinance. You must have an existing VA home loan to be eligible for this program’s benefits.
Earned VA Loan benefits provide qualified homeowners with an effortless way to take advantage of lower rates and decrease their monthly mortgage payment. Additionally, military homeowners can get cash back on a VA refinance and use the proceeds for a variety of needs, such as home improvements or paying down high-interest debt. Current low interest rates make it a great time to invest in your home or use equity to pay off other expenses.
