VA Refinance

If you currently have a VA loan and are looking to refinance you are able to refinance with a VA IRRRL/streamline or cash-out loan.

The streamlined version lowers the mortgage rate of an already existing VA loan, normally for less than the current principal and interest rate. Which doesn’t require a credit check or appraisal. The cash-out option involves a credit check and appraisal.
