Which is the best for you – home equity loan or a cash-out refinance?

If you’re looking to access your equity with a lump sum payment, we can help you determine whether a home equity loan or a cash-out refinance might be best.

  • A cash-out refinance replaces your original mortgage with a new first mortgage.
  • The difference between the current loan amount and the new loan amount is available then as the “cash out.”
  • Factors to determine the best solution include your current mortgage rate, closing costs and your financial goals.
