Loan Type


Refinancing your home loan can be a smart financial move, whether you’re looking to lower your monthly payments, shorten your loan term, or tap into your home’s equity. At The Home Loan Expert, we offer a variety of refinance loan options tailored to help you achieve your financial goals.

Our refinance loans are designed to provide you with greater flexibility and savings. By refinancing, you can take advantage of lower interest rates, reduce your monthly mortgage payments, or switch from an adjustable-rate mortgage to a fixed-rate mortgage for more stability. Additionally, refinancing can allow you to access the equity in your home for major expenses, such as home improvements, education, or debt consolidation.

We offer several types of refinance loans, including rate-and-term refinance, cash-out refinance, and streamline refinance options. Our experienced loan officers will work with you to understand your specific needs and guide you through the best refinance options available. With our expertise and dedication, we make the refinancing process straightforward and hassle-free.

Refinance Options to Consider



A cash-out refinance lets you tap into your home’s equity by refinancing for a higher loan amount than you currently owe. You receive the extra amount as cash, tax-free. This option is ideal for paying off high-interest debts, funding home improvements, weddings, or college tuition. With typically lower interest rates than consumer debts, a cash-out refinance is great for debt consolidation. Plus, mortgage interest is tax-deductible, unlike most other debt interest.


Lower Monthly Payment

Refinancing can lower your monthly mortgage payment, making it easier to budget. By securing a lower interest rate, you save on interest over time. Eliminating private mortgage insurance (PMI), which adds 3%-5% to your monthly costs if you didn’t put down 20% at purchase, is another benefit. You can choose between a fixed-rate mortgage for stability or an adjustable-rate mortgage (ARM) for potential savings.


A New Term

Refinancing your mortgage lets you choose a term that fits your financial goals. Switching from a 30-year to a 15-year mortgage can help you pay off your home faster and reduce total interest. Shorter terms often have lower rates, allowing more of your payment to go toward the principal. Conversely, moving from a 15-year to a 30-year mortgage can lower your monthly payments, providing immediate financial relief and flexibility. Whether you aim to pay off your loan faster or reduce monthly expenses, refinancing to a new term can meet your financial needs.

What is your goal?

If you’re considering refinancing, start by asking yourself, “What is my goal?”
  • Are you looking to lower your interest rate?
  • Do you want to shorten your loan term?
  • Are you aiming for a lower monthly payment?
  • Do you want to consolidate debt?
  • Are you interested in pulling cash out from your home’s equity?
  • Do you have a second mortgage that you’d like to combine with your first?
  • Are you looking to switch from an adjustable-rate to a fixed-rate loan?
  • Do you need to remove someone from your current loan?
Identifying your primary goal will help you choose the best refinancing option to meet your needs. Our expert team is here to guide you through the process and ensure you achieve your financial objectives.

Lower Your Rate

Refinancing to a lower interest rate can lead to significant long-term savings and reduce your monthly mortgage payments. By securing a better rate, you can save money over the life of your loan, freeing up funds for other financial goals or investments.

Pay Off Debt

Consolidate your high-interest credit card debt with a cash-out refinance. By tapping into your home’s equity, you can pay off outstanding debts and enjoy a single, lower-interest monthly payment, simplifying your finances and reducing overall interest costs.

Lower Mortgage Payment

Reduce your monthly mortgage payment with a simple refinance. By adjusting your loan terms or securing a lower interest rate, you can save thousands of dollars annually, making your mortgage more affordable and easing your financial burden.

Refinance Steps to Follow

After determining the type of refinance that suits your needs, it’s crucial to select a reliable lender to ensure a smooth process. Start by inquiring about their availability, loan servicing, and the rates and fees they offer. Checking for customer satisfaction and reviews is also important. Additionally, understand the expected timeline for closing your loan to avoid any surprises.

  • Refinance Documents to Prepare Application

    Important documents to have on hand for your lender are:

    • Your two most recent pay stubs
    • Your two most recent W-2s
    • The most recent two months of bank statements

    If your spouse or someone else will be on the loan with you, they’ll need to provide these documents, too (so your lender can get the whole picture of your financial situation). Also, self-employed homeowners will need to provide a few more documents to demonstrate income. For example, your entire tax return may be required to determine the exact amount of cash in and cash out.

  • Refinance Application, Underwriting and Appraisal

    After gathering documentation, you will need to apply for the loan through your lender. Your lender will use an underwriter to check that all of the details on the mortgage application and supporting documentation are accurate and fulfill the necessary guidelines. The loan is only secured once the application is accepted by your lender, your appraiser provides an evaluation of the property’s value, and the investor of your loan (the institution that gives your lender the funds for your mortgage) approves. This part of the process typically takes one to two weeks.

    Once your mortgage application has been approved, you’ll have the option to lock in a mortgage rate for 30 to 60 days. While that should get you to closing, there is the possibility to extend the lock-in period should the closing date be delayed.

  • Refinance Closing

    Anyone who will be on the refinance loan should be at the closing. The closing may also be attended on the loan signator’s behalf by someone who is granted power of attorney. Additionally, it is typical to expect a representative from the title company to be at closing (some states require a witness to be present as well). However, these days, closings commonly happen virtually.

    The following are typically necessary at the closing:

    • Identification such as a driver’s license, government-issued photo ID, or passport
    • A cashier’s check to cover your closing costs (if applicable)
    • Your Closing Disclosure to double-check the final paperwork
    • A list of key contacts, like your agent or lawyer, in case any questions come up.
  • Refinance Expenses

    Keep in mind the costs and fees associated with a loan refinance:

    • Application Fee. This fee will be due even if your loan is denied.
    • Appraisal Fee: You will need to get a professional appraisal of your home to determine the home’s value for your lender. Some refinance options, like a streamline refinance, may be eligible to get the appraisal waived.
    • Inspection Fee: Certain inspections may be required based on the type of loan you’re getting.
    • Attorney Review and Closing Fee: This fee covers the costs of the lawyer who conducts the closing for the lender.
    • Title Search and Insurance: A title search is conducted to ensure there are no liens on a home and that a borrower is the rightful homeowner. Title insurance is a one-time cost that protects the borrower and the lender against any problems with the title that were caused by a previous property owner.
