    Delaware FHA Loan Changes – Max LTV going to 85% for cash-out on April 1st

    John Thomas March 16, 2009 Tags:

    FHA loans will currently let you take cash out of your home up to a maximum of 95% loan to value.  The guideline changed on January 1, 2009, to require you to have two appraisals for cash-out above 85% loan to value.  Now the guidelines will change again on April 1, 2009, so that the maximum loan to value for cash-out refinances in Delaware for FHA loans will be 85%.  If you get your FHA case # assigned before April 1, 2009, you can still go to 95% on your loan.  So you don’t have to close by April 1st.

    So if you have been considering refinancing to do debt consolidation then you need to hurry up because debt consolidation is considered cash-out.  If you have questions or need help with an FHA loan, please call me at 302-703-0727 or APPLY ONLINE
