How soon after buying a home can you start the re-financing process?

Help the community by answering this question:


You can start the Re-finance process as soon the deed and existing mortgage have been recorded.

I sugguest you contact a reputable lender to confirm the costs and determine if it is cost effective to do so. However, if you have renovated or made other significant improvements that have improved your equity there may be a good solid reason to re-finance so as to eradicate PMI for example.

Good Luck.

If it is a cashout, you have to wait 6 months to refi with a conventional loan. You can do cashout up to an 80% Loan to Value(LTV) with no mortgage insurance.

The answer to that question depends on the type of mortgage (if any) was used to purchase the home. If a mortgage was obtained for purchase then you would need to ask your mortgage institution that question. If cash was used to purchase depending on which company you use for the refinance the time of ownership of the property may range from a miniumum of 1 to 2 years

Right away depends how much loan to value you want.

Your loan after closing is refi and not a purchase. There are rules about how much you can do and that you will pay a higher rate for any PMI.

Contact a mortgage professional WAY in advance for details on your particular situation.
