In 2022 Cash (Out) is King

Nothing lasts forever… Including tremendously low interest rates. Even if it is ever-so-slightly, in 2022 interest rates are expected to rise. Over the past few years though, home values have appreciated at an incredible pace. For the refinance sector, these factors draw the majority of consumers away from rate and term refinances and point them toward a cash-out focus instead. Most current homeowners have built up quite a bit of equity, which should theoretically make qualifying for a cash-out refinance fairly easy for most. So is it the right move for you? We’ve laid out the most common uses for this type of refinancing so you can explore the possibilities. Like always, your team at Cambria Mortgage is here to help and support you in your home financing journey. Don’t hesitate to reach out with any questions or to begin the process. Read More
