Yes you can absolutely do a cash-out refinance up to 85% of the homes value (contingent upon county loan limits). Many of my clients have done this after purchasing a distressed property (foreclosure, short sale) being that the true value was much greater than what they purchased it for; just made financial sense. Please contact me at your earliest convenience so we can weigh out your options and determine which is most cost efficient.

It will depend on a lot of factors, but the first one is what type of new loan are you going to take cash-out with? For example, a freddie mac loan allows for 6 months removed from the initial loan. FHA will require a full year to base the new loan on the current appraised value.

We see a lot of clients refinance out of the 203k to avoid paying mortgage insurance. Some of them do that and then take out a home equity loan.

Bottom line is each scenario is specific, and I would need to know more about your situation to give you my professional answer. Best of luck. Feel free to reach out to me.

Yes it is typically one year. If you have more than 1 property you might be able to do portfolio loan.

It depends on the type of loan you apply for when doing the cash out. A conventional loan in my shop would require at least 12 monthly of payments being made which would translate to at least 13 months of ownership. But don’t narrow it down to something as constricted as a timeline, that isn’t the only requirement. Do you still live in the house? Why is there enough equity that soon to qualify for a cash out? What’s your blood type, just kidding on that one. But a cash out refi has a higher risk level therefore will warrant a very stringent review, not implying others don’t, just pointing out it is more complicated than continuity of ownership. Good luck,
