Altogether, you may find that the Streamline program is a simpler and easier way to refinance your loan.
Important Facts About the Streamline Program
The Streamline program is ideal for many homeowners, but it is not the right solution for all borrowers. For example, this program does not allow you to take cash out of your home, so if you need to tap into your home equity, you will need to apply for another program. The rates for this program are highly competitive, and most people who apply for this program do so to reduce their monthly payment through rate and term refinancing, lowering their interest rate or a combination of both. Typical refinance terms apply, regarding loan-to-value limits, credit score requirements and more, and you can learn more about these when you contact MortgageDepot for information.
