We recently helped a family secure a 7-year loan against the equity in their home for debt consolidation and other personal reasons.
They’ve had the property for nearly 30 years and already owned it Free & Clear.
However, the family was in a situation where they needed cash to bring their property taxes current and also keep a large cash savings for future family and home expenses.
Through the refinance, the property taxes, homeowners insurance, and a small personal loan were all paid directly from the escrow company. The family also received the rest of the loan proceeds (cash-out) for their own savings.
- The title to the property was held in a family trust with multiple owners.
- Property taxes were delinquent.
- There was an urgency to close as quickly as possible.
- The property is located in a very desirable area and the home is in excellent condition.
- The property was owned free and clear with a lot of equity
- The requested loan amount was less than 25% of the current market value of the property. (Under 25% Loan-to-Value ratio) The family therefore kept approximately 75% equity in their property at the time of closing.
- Good overall credit history with no major debts outstanding.
This loan is expected to be paid off when the home is sold in the near future. (An exit strategy is how the borrowers plan to pay off the loan in full.)
