FHA Refinance loans offer a few different options for refinancing your loan. FHA refinances can be done as a “streamline” to simply reduce your interest rate or loan term. FHA refinances can also be done as “cash out” to use the equity in your home to pay off other debts or pull cash out. Generally speaking both transactions can be done with very little effort and minimal documentation required. For complete details on the FHA streamline refinance program or FHA cash out loan see below.
