What is Cash Out Refinancing?
If you aren’t familiar with cash out refinancing, a cash out refinance is where you take equity out of your home in the form of cash. In other words, you refinance and get cash back, reducing the amount of equity you have in your home. You can use the cash you get back for any purpose, such as debt consolidation, home improvements and repairs, or investments. While it does add to the amount you owe on your mortgage, refinancing is a good way to get long term financing at a very low interest rate.

When is the ‘right time’ to refinance?
In our post 4 Ways to Make Refinancing Work for YOU!, we explain how you as a homeowner can take advantage of refinancing opportunities. From lowering your monthly payments to paying less interest, there are a number of reasons why it’s smart to refinance. However, that still leaves the question of when to refinance. In this post, we’ll go over how to know the right time to start on refinancing your mortgage!
The best way to determine whether or not it’s time to refinance is to do some quick math. While refinancing at a lower rate can certainly save money over time, there are still fees associated with completing the process. So, we can illustrate the payback period with a quick equation like this:
(Fees associated with refinancing)/(Expected monthly savings) = Number of months to payback
In the equation above there are three components:
- Fees associated with refinancing: When refinancing, there are a number of costs that need to be covered ranging from inspection and appraisal to application and closing fees.
- Expected monthly savings: This one is more or less self-explanatory. This is the difference between your current monthly payment and your monthly payment at the new, lower interest rate.
- The number of months to payback: This is the number of months you’ll need to keep the home to break even on the refi. If you don’t expect to be there longer than it takes to offset the cost of the refi, you’ll be wasting time and money, even at a lower interest rate!
