Refinance

Apply for a new mortgage with more favorable terms. You can refinance to get a lower interest rate, to get a different type of loan without mortgage insurance payments, or to change the number of years to pay off your loan. It’s also common to get cash out of a refinance to consolidate high-interest debt, fund home improvements, or have cash for other needs.

  • Refinance to a conventional, FHA, or VA loan.
  • Access your home’s equity for home projects, college costs, or to pay off high-interest debt.
  • Shorten the length of your term to pay off your loan faster.
