FHA Cash Out Refinancing Gets Tougher Tomorrow!

FHA cash out refinances reduce to 85 percent April 1 2009If you're in want of a cash out refinance, the most liberal cash-out program in town is about to make qualification more difficult.

Effective tomorrow, April 1, 2009, the FHA is reducing the maximum loan-to-value on cash-out refinances by 10 percent, dropping the loan size limit from 95% of the home's value to 85%.

In its official press release, the FHA says it's making the change to "limit its exposure to undue risk".

It also lists the following cash-out requirements:

  • With less than 12 months since the purchase date, a home's value cannot exceed its original purchase price -- even if home improvements were made.

  • A homeowner must be current on his mortgage payments to qualify

  • A second, verifying appraisal may be necessary, depending on loan traits

  • Co-signers may not be added to the mortgage note in order to qualify

The last day to register a FHA 95% cash out refinance is Tuesday, March 31, 2009. The loan does not need to be "locked" -- only registered.

So, if you know that a 95% cash out FHA refinance is in your future, talk to your loan officer today about registration.

I have been reading your site since a week. I greatly enjoyed looking through your site and found some informative pages on finances as well as mortgages. I also have few finance related blogs and sites having more information regarding various finance and mortgage related problems and its solutions. I think it might be of interest to your readers.

So, I think it would be beneficial for both of us if we join in a community together which will definitely help both of ours blog/site in getting more Google values. We would certainly appreciate your site. Please feel free to contact me with any questions at my email id.

If you want we can also write articles for each others site on any finance related topics (guest post). I have been writing articles for various finance related sites and blogs.

Waiting for your earliest response.
