Debt Consolidation Frequently Asked Questions

How much equity can I borrow from my home when I refinance to pay off debt?

  • Most homeowners: The FHA underwriting guidelines allow borrowers with good credit to cash out up to 85% of home value, while Freddie Mac and Fannie Mae guidelines allow up to 80% of home value.
  • VA home loan rules allow military service members, veterans, and spouses to cash out up to 100% of home value.

Your credit history influences how much you can borrow. If you have credit dings, your cash-out limit may be lower. Call 888-966-9044 to talk to a Debt Consolidation Refinance Professional about how the rules apply in your specific situation.

How do debt consolidation refinance mortgage rates compare to purchase mortgage rates?

They're typically a bit higher. The interest rate you pay can also be influenced by how much equity you cash out of your home. 15-year fixed rates are usually lower than 30-year fixed rates.

How will my total monthly payments change when I refinance my home loan to pay off debt?

Our refinance professionals can give you an exact answer, or you can use our debt consolidation calculator to get a rough estimate.

In general, when you refinance to pay off credit card debt or other high-cost debts, your monthly payment goes down. Depending on whether you stick with your current mortgage payoff date or go for a longer term, you may be making those payments longer.2

Want to pay off your mortgage faster? Our Refinance Professionals can show you how fast you’ll pay off your home loan if you apply some of your monthly savings toward your principal each month.

Our prepayment calculator shows you the savings.

Can I refinance and consolidate debt with bad credit?

We offer mortgages to people in a big credit spectrum.

VA and FHA don't have official minimum credit scores. We consider your whole credit picture and not just your credit score.

I want to refinance my home to pay off debt, but I don't want to start my 30-year mortgage again. Can I keep my same payoff date?

When you use the equity in your home to pay off debt, you can choose the same or different loan terms. Pick a shorter, a similar, or a longer payoff date.

For example, if you have 20 years left to go on your 30-year mortgage, you can go with a 20-year mortgage, speed up your payoff with a 15-year loan term, or extend the life of the loan back out to 30 years to get the lowest possible monthly payment.3

What are closing costs? Do I have to pay them myself?

When you refinance and consolidate debt, you can finance your closing costs or pay a higher interest rate and get a credit to cover them.

How is refinancing my mortgage different from the home loan I got to buy my home?

The biggest difference: With a refinance you get the money to pay off or pay down your existing debt (instead of bringing money to the closing table, like you did when you bought a home). Your payout will come four business days after you close (because you get three days to change your mind and unwind any home loan refinance).

You typically won't have to pay for home inspections other than possibly a termite inspection if you go with a VA cash out refinance and termites live in your part of the country (Alaskans, you're off the hook).

Other than that, the home loan process is pretty much the same.

What is the VA Funding Fee when I refinance my home to pay off debt?

Type of Veteran First VA loan Have prior VA loan
Regular Military 2.15% 3.30%
Reserves/National Guard 2.40% 3.30%
Borrowers with Service-connected disability 0% 0%

For manufactured home loans not permanently affixed to a foundation, add 1%

The relative benefits you receive from debt consolidation will vary depending on your individual circumstances. You should consider that a debt consolidation loan may increase the total number of monthly payments and the total amount paid over the term of the loan. To enjoy the benefits of a debt consolidation loan, you should not carry new credit card or high interest rate debt.
