VA Cashout Refinance Loan
Uses for a VA Cash Out Refinance Loan
The VA cash out refinance loan is a great way for National Guard members or veterans to refinance their existing loan to consolidate debts, make home improvements or just switch loan types to a VA loan. The VA allows for you to utilize the equity in your home up to 100% of the value with a VA cash out refinance loan.
If you have credit card, school loan, medical or any other kind of debt that needs to be consolidated, using a VA cash out refinance loan and your home’s equity is an easy way to consolidate debt payments each month. A VA cash out refinance debt consolidation loan could save you thousands in interest and provide you with additional tax benefits (please consult a CPA).
A VA cash out refinance home improvement loan can be used to make additional improvements to your home with your home’s existing home equity. Use the cash to renovate your kitchen or bath, build an addition or even make energy efficiency improvements. What you can do is up to your needs and your imagination!
Switching to a VA Loan
You can use a VA cash out refinance loan to change your existing loan type to a VA loan even if you do not want to utilize the equity in your home for cash to consolidate debt or make improvements. Using a VA loan can help you save money each month by eliminating monthly mortgage insurance or just by lowering the existing rate of your conventional, Jumbo, FHA or USDA loan. VA loans are available in 15, 20 , 25, 30 year terms and can sometimes even be refinanced for the number of years remaining on your existing loan.

VA Loan Limits
VA loan limits are determined by the Federal Housing Finance Agency (FHFA) and $453,100 is the VA cash out refinance limit for most counties in the United States. However, some counties have an adjusted higher loan amount due to higher housing costs. The Veteran’s Administration will provide a loan guarantee up to 100% LTV for counties with higher loan amounts. To check your county’s VA loan limit, please visit the VA’s Home Loan Limits page. You can cash out the equity in your home above the VA’s loan limit amount, but specific conditions must be met. Please contact us for assistance in determining your specific requirements.
