VA Loans help active military and veterans qualify for homeownership, and if you already have a VA loan, now is a great time to refinance at today’s low rates.

There are two programs that can be used to refinance an existing mortgage: VA Streamline Refinance or a VA Cash Out Refinance.

LEARN MORE

What is a VA Cash Out Refinance? This particular loan allows borrowers to pull cash out of their home’s equity, even if they are currently in another type of loan such as an FHA or USDA. With a VA Cash-Out, you could even pull out cash up to 100% of the home’s value, including the funding fee, as long as you meet the requirements set by VA, which is known as net tangible benefits. The cash that is pulled out of your home’s equity can be used to take care of paying off debt, paying for tuition, or making necessary home improvements and repairs. It can also be used to refinance a non- VA loan into a VA loan.

What is a VA Streamline Refinance? This loan also known as the Interest Rate Reduction Refinance Loan (IRRRL), it is the best option for homeowners who already have a VA loan and would like to refinance the loan into a lower interest rate and lower their monthly mortgage payment.

What are the VA Home Loan Requirements? VA Loan qualifications typically require one of the following:

  • 90 days of service during wartime
  • 181 continuous days of active service during peacetime
  • 6 or more years of service in the National Guard or Reserves
  • Being the un-married, surviving spouse of a service member who died in the line of duty, or because of a service-related disability

What are VA Home Loan Benefits? Since VA loans are approved by the government, VA loans provide access to special benefits, including:

  • Lower interest rates: VA loans generally offer interest rates lower than conventional loans.
  • No monthly mortgage insurance premiums: MI payments can cost borrowers hundreds of dollars every month, an expense you'll never have with a VA loan.
  • No prepayment penalty: With a VA loan, you can sell or refinance at any time without having to pay a penalty.
  • Ability to finance the VA funding fee: The funding fee can be rolled into the entire loan amount and the total loan with the funding fee cannot exceed your appraised value.
  • Less than perfect credit usually accepted: You don't need to have perfect credit to qualify for a VA loan.
  • 100% cash out refinance, including the funding fee :Use your home's value and pull cash out to pay off debt, make repairs to your home, remodel, or spend any way you wish, as long as you meet requirements set by VA known as net tangible benefits.

MBS Week Ahead: High Gear nCov Fear Pushing Rates Toward All-Time Lows

Posted To: MBS Commentary

Coronavirus (or nCov for short) made more disconcerting headlines over the weekend and has generally proven itself to be far more capable in that regard than its long lost cousin, SARS. When the nCov market narrative first emerged in mid-January, the comparison to SARS was still unknown. Now that the virus is unequivocally spreading faster, farther, and killing more people, markets are free to express more panic. But why panic? It's not as if nCov will kill more people than the flu does each year, right? So what's the big deal? In short, the big deal is that everyone is used to dealing with the flu. There are well-established figured on how many people will probably get it and how many of those will die. There's also a vaccine that is occasionally effective and that may at least...(read more)

Controller, LO Jobs; Compliance and Servicing Events; Coronavirus Dominating Markets

Posted To: Pipeline Press

With the coronavirus driving worldwide markets and politics dominating the headlines, who doesn’t like “easy?” Easy: Krispy Kreme is launching donut delivery. Thank you to Ken S. who passed along this report, brought to us by our friends at the NAR (or is it just “NAR”?), on the easiest places to buy a house this year . Surprisingly, many of the “easy” places are along the coast, with the harder places inland. What isn’t easy is paying out a $3 billion fine, like Wells Fargo did last week for its fake account scandal, or shifting/closing/pausing an entire division like Quicken Loans did with its One Reverse Mortgage . Another thing that isn’t easy is keeping track of trends with 139 million housing units, and servicing the loans on many...(read more)
