What is a VA Cash Out?
Put your home’s equity to work for you with a VA Cash Out Refinance. If you want to lower your rate, but also get cash to pay bills, consolidate high-interest credit card debt, improve your budget or make home improvements then you may want to opt for a VA Cash Out Refinance. This type of refinance is different than a VA Streamline Refinance (IRRRL) as it allows you to tap into the equity in your home to access cash. Qualified home owners can refinance up to 100% of their home’s value for mortgage debt. VA homeowners can also refinance a lower percentage and use the cash to cover debt payments and other needs.

Other benefits include:
- Closing costs and funding fee can be rolled into the entire loan amount

- Lower rate or better terms

- No money out of pocket
