Home owners can sell their house and acquire access to their equity, or they can apply for a cash-out refinance and borrow money from their equity. The method of cashing-out equity with a refinance involves applying for a new mortgage loan, taking cash from the equity and then rolling the borrowed funds into the new mortgage loan balance. Cashing out equity with a refinance will increase the mortgage loan balance, which can likely increase monthly payments. However, cash-out refinances can provide borrowers with immediate cash to pay down credit cards or renovate their home.
