No cash-out refinances are extremely
common and popular. These are generally referred to as a
rate and term refinance. The reason a no cash-out
refinance is called a rate and term, or rate/term,
refinance is because generally you are refinancing
because you either want to try to better your interest
rate or you want to change your mortgage loan term. With
a no cash-out refinance you can still generally obtain
up to the lesser of $2,000 back, or 2% of your loan
amount, and it is still considered a no cash-out
refinance, or a rate and term refinance.
A No Cash-Out Refinance is a transaction in which the new mortgage amount is limited to the sum of the remaining balance of all existing mortgages, closing costs (including prepaid items), and any discount points.
A no-cash out refinance means you are only changing the Rate and Term of your loan.
Quite often a NO-cash out refinance loan can be used to strategically shorten the term length and save even more money.
You are allowed to receive a maximum amount of $2000 during a No Cash-Out Refinance.
You are only allowed to receive $2,000 or 2%, whichever is the lesser, of your loan amount back in a rate and term refinance, also known as a no-cash out refinance. No cash out refinances are done for many reasons. One reason is to lower the rate and or term of your loan. Lowering your rate can save you money from your monthly mortgage payment and lowering your term can cut the time it takes you to pay off your mortgage saving you tens of thousands (possibly hundreds of thousands) of dollars of mortgage interest.
Another reason to do a no cash out refinance is because you currently have a 3,5,7 year fixed-adjustable rate mortgage and it is about to expire and start adjusting every 6-12 months, or you would like to get off the adjustable rate mortgage all-together and into a fixed rate mortgage before the market climbs into the 7% range.
An experienced mortgage broker often submits Rate and Term Refinance applications to the banks that currently hold the mortgage notes, because there is a good chance the homeowners qualify for "Streamline Refinance" programs, which offer reduced documentation and less settlement costs to the homeowners.
No Cash Out means different things to different lenders. If you are looking for a mortgage that is non conventional then the rule of thumb is 1%. That means you cannot have more then 1% cash in hand for a non cash out refinance.
Many people will do a no cash out refinance to simply lower their term from 30 years to 25 or from 20 years to 20 years, etc... By lowering your term you will save a substantial amount of mortgage interest. Cash out refinances can also be done for the opposite reason: A borrower may be on a 15 year mortgage and something happens at work or an unexpected expense comes up and it may be necessary to increase your term back up to a 30 year mortgage instead of the 15 so that you can free up some money each month.
One of the most popular reasons to refinance with no cash out is to switch from an adjustable rate mortgage, or ARM, into a Fixed Rate Mortgage. In most cases, your closing costs can be rolled into a no-cash out refinance with no penalty or increase to rate.
