How much credit card debt are you carrying?
Let’s look at some figures:
That means on a $5,525 balance, you’d be expected to accrue $515 in interest for the year.
Our estimation here is based on the average – in fact, rates can be even higher!
Here’s how a cash-out refinance can help you:
Cash out-refinances can help you prioritize paying off your high-interest debt and allow you to pay less total interest over time thanks to the lower interest rate of a mortgage compared to consumer debt – meaning credit cards, and personal loans.
Right now, rates run generally around…
That means that you’re looking at a potential difference of almost 15%-20% in terms of accruing annual interest!
To estimate how much you could take out in a cash-out refinance, take the amount of principal paid off out of the total of your mortgage loan. For example, you have a $400,000 mortgage and still owe $200,000. Potentially you could draw out $200,000 in a cash-out refinance as that is the amount of principal you have paid to this date.
With the cash from the cash-out in hand, you can do anything you want! That’s right – the cash from a cash-out refinance does not come with rules on how it can be spent. You could upgrade your home with fresh paint or flooring, redo a few rooms, put on an addition, or pay off credit cards, student loans, cars, or maybe even go on vacation!
Why take out a cash-out refinance now?
Year-over-year home equity has increased 32.2%,5 and the average homeowner gained approximately $64,000 in equity during the past year, according to CoreLogic.5
Now is the time to cash-out!
