The FHA Streamline Refinance program makes it easier for people with FHA loans to take advantage of falling interest rates. With a streamline refinance, you can replace a current FHA loan with a new FHA loan that has a better rate or better terms. There’s less paperwork and loan approvals are typically faster too! Freedom Mortgage customers who have FHA loans can enjoy additional benefits when they choose us for their FHA Streamline Refinances.
FHA Streamline Refinance eligibility requirements
One requirement for FHA Streamline Refinancing is there must be a "net tangible benefit to the borrower". That means people who want a Streamline Refinance must receive a benefit for the refinance transaction. In addition, borrowers must be current on the payments for their existing loan and cannot receive more than $500 cash as part of the refinance.
Advantages and disadvantages of an FHA Streamline Refinance
For many borrowers, there are no home appraisal or income requirements and the credit requirements can be more flexible too. You can also use a streamline to refinance from an adjustable rate to a fixed rate loan.
Keep in mind most borrowers will need to pay a new upfront mortgage insurance premium when they refinance to a new FHA loan. It may be possible to roll this fee into your new FHA loan, although doing this will increase your loan balance.
