In the meantime, the following will give you an idea of the variety of refinancing loan options available.

Rate-and-Term Refinance

  • This is a straightforward kind of refinance loan.
  • Besides the typical fees associated with the loan process (processing, underwriting, etc.), no actual money changes hands.
  • The amount of money you owe on your loan doesn’t change.


You receive better terms that should save you money (immediately or in the long run) on your loan.

Cash-Out Refinance

  • This loan increases the amount of money you will have to pay back on your loan.
  • You’ll receive cash at the end of the transaction for you to use as you please.
  • This type of loan only works when your home has increased in value during the years you’ve owned it.
  • This loan allows you to turn the equity (increased value) in your home into cash.

FHA Streamline Refinance

  • This government-backed refinance loan is only for borrowers who currently have an FHA purchase loan.
  • It’s typically a faster loan process than a conventional refinance.
  • It doesn’t usually require a lot of paperwork and it often allows borrowers to forego an appraisal, saving the borrower time and money.
