People also ask, can I refinance my conventional loan?
Refinancing a conventional loan can position you to reduce your current monthly expenses. According to MortgageAmerica, Inc., a conventional loan is any mortgage which is not guaranteed or insured by the federal government. A lender or mortgage broker can assist you with refinancing your conventional mortgage.
Beside above, can I refinance after 3 months? Depending on the situation, it's possible to refinance a mortgage loan immediately. If you want to do a cash-out refinance and gain access to some of the equity you have in the home, the waiting period can be at least six months after your current mortgage loan closed.
Also question is, why do you have to wait 6 months to refinance?
You can refinance with many banks/lenders right after you purchase the property using the purchase price. You won't be able to recoup any renovation money or use the appraised value, if you're using a Fannie/Freddie backed lender, for at least 6 months (that's the guideline) or a year (that's a lender overlay).
How much equity do I need to refinance to a conventional loan?
Equity Needed to Refinance a Conventional Loan Strictly speaking, you only need 5 percent equity in most cases to get a conventional refinance. However, if your equity is less than 20 percent, then you'll likely face higher interest rates and fees, plus you'll have to take out mortgage insurance.
