Cash-out Refinance Mortgages
Use cash out for a variety of purposes
Whether your borrowers are looking to receive cash out from the increased value of their home to use for debt consolidation, or for any other purpose, Freddie Mac's cash-out refinance mortgage options could be the solution.
Our cash-out refinance mortgage offers flexibility and variety so you can meet a diverse range of borrower needs: obtaining cash for home improvements, reducing a rate and monthly payment, paying off a purchase money junior lien used for any purpose, or paying off a leasehold interest. Plus, all related closing costs, financing costs and prepaid items can be rolled into the new loan amount, further maximizing your borrower's cash flow potential.
In addition, our special purpose cash-out refinance mortgage allows borrowers in special circumstances to use the proceeds of the refinance transaction to buy out the equity of a co-owner. With the special purpose cash-out refinance mortgage in your product line, you can now offer your borrowers another option to meet their specific needs.
