It’s common to refinance home mortgages in 2021, so this video covers the ways that refinancing can help you achieve your goals, and the things you should be aware of. What type of investments should you use from a cash-out refinance? What type shouldn’t you? There’s times when a cash out refinance is advised, and other times it’s not – and I’m here to tell you the truth!

All right matt the mortgage guy here i’m excited  about today’s video and the reason i’m excited   about today’s video is because we’re going to  talk about the pros and cons of a cash-out refund   a video that i did three and a half years ago when  i was just out there putting videos on youtube   to help educate people on a mortgage

I wasn’t  trying to hack the youtube algorithm i didn’t   care how many people watched it but for whatever  reason this video really resonated with people   it’s got near 100 000 views now i’ve got tons of  positive feedback on that video so obviously it   helped people it was important to people so here  we are three and a

Half years later pros and cons   of a cash out refi revamped revisited improved  2.0 whatever you want to call it i’ve got three   and a half more years of experience three and  a half years of serving thousands of clients   with cash out refinances you know regular rate  and term refinances purchases all that stuff so  

Hopefully i can give some insight based on all  the experience that i’ve accumulated over the   last three and a half years and make this video  even better so without further ado i’m going to   jump into it if you like straightforward real  estate mortgage and investing advice consider   subscribing to the channel smash the like

Button  for the youtube algorithm i want this video to   surpass that last video and i’m going to give  it to the end of the year to pass up that last   video that got 100 000 views so with your help  i should be able to do that so pros and cons   of a cash out refinance cash out refinance in  2021 is as popular as ever as

You can imagine   are really low so that leads us into our first   pro you can get a lower rate and even though a  cash out refinance has a slightly higher rate   means paying off your old one no cash out   if that slightly higher rate is still lower than  your current rate you’re in good shape meaning you   can

Take out 40 50 000 pay off credit card debt  remodel the house whatever it is students you know   college education for your kid whatever the heck  it is but it only makes sense and it’s only a pro   if you’re lowering your rate in my opinion if  you’re taking a three percent interest rate you’re   doing a cash out refinance into

A four and a half  percent to pay off 20 000 in credit card debt that   lands on the con side the higher interest rate  because what happens is if somebody calls me   they say hey matt i owe 273 on my mortgage but  it’s worth 500 000 i’ve got equity to pull out   i’ve got 19 000 in credit card debt i want to pay  off well

If you’re going to take a low mortgage   this is going to you know be evergreen content   it’s it’s going to be like this where you’ve   got a three percent from the year 2020 or 2021  and in 2024 a cash out is four and a half percent   that’s something you would not do because you’re  gonna pay not just the four and a half

Percent   on the credit card debt you’re paying off but  on that whole 273 that you paid off and that’s   where i tell people don’t pay an extra percent  and a half go from three to four and a half on   um that whole mortgage balance of 273 000 because  rough math that’s four thousand dollars a year in   interest that

You’re paying you’re paying over 300  a month in interest extra on that mortgage balance   for paying off that credit card debt and that’s   another point that i don’t know if i made it in  the last video but i’ll make it in this video   if you’re taking out a small sum of money in a  cash out refinance i usually advise don’t do

A   cash out refinance eight thousand dollars to pay  off credit card debt eleven thousand dollars for   a roof fourteen thousand dollars for whatever  it is plastic surgery um you probably would be   better off doing what’s called a rate and term  no cash out and get the better interest rate on   your mortgage and then

Find alternative financing  you know home depot credit card or something else   to fund because you don’t pay an extra quarter   on the whole 300 000 or the whole 400 000 when  only 10 000 of it is needed for that project   to lower your rate and you’re going from 375 to   three and a quarter and you’re taking cash out 

And you’re you know doing something constructive   with the money that’s a pro if you’re raising  your rate and by raising let’s let’s clarify   cash out to three and a quarter but you’re   paying off 44 000 in credit card debt that’s at  18 percent i’m okay with that i’m not okay with   taking out 10 000 to pay off a high

Interest debt  and raising the rate from three percent to four   percent on four hundred thousand dollars because  then you’re paying that extra percent on all that   money hopefully that makes sense and realize when  i when i talk about rates i’m just throwing random   rates out there this video is going to be out  there for

Eternity so in 2027 rates might be   debt consolidation i’ve seen people use this   beautifully and they’ve got a 600 000 house they  only owe 230 000 on it and for whatever reason   to college they racked up credit card debt   if they’ve got 37 000 in credit card debt   and they’re paying 18 interest and just month 

After month seven eight hundred dollars and   they just can’t get this balance to come down you  do a cash out refinance and do debt consolidation   seven five to three percent you might pull forty  thousand out and barely see a change to your your   payment the really smart thing would be to realize  you’ve been paying five six

Seven hundred a month   towards this debt consolidation maybe we run some  figures and we show you pay off all that debt   your new mortgage is 150 more but you’re used to  paying 500 600 more what if you apply that to the   new mortgage paid off all your debt and then by  paying those extra payments you’re paying towards  

Credit cards towards your mortgage now you’re  paid off in 21 years or 19 years something like   that that’s cool okay this is the con of that  exact scenario you pay off the credit card debt   and you repeat the cycle you reload it back on  that is definitely a con because let’s be honest   us as americans we are consumers and

To be uh you  know uh i’m gonna i want to say this nicely uh i   don’t know some people would say you know you’re  contributing by by going out there and spending um   you don’t have to do that you don’t have to go out  there and spend recklessly on on random things but   credit card debt and then 18 months later  

You’ve got 46 000 because all of a sudden you’ve  got all this room on credit card to go ham you   wouldn’t want to do that so that’s a con is you’re  human beings okay use equity for investment this  i put it on the pro side because i’ve seen really   cool stuff i’ve seen taking out you know sixty  thousand when you owe three hundred

And your house   is worth eight hundred it’s just that five hundred  thousand dollars just sitting there some people   will call it debt equity some people who are a  little bit more or less risk averse and and trying   to put their money to work for them would go crazy  seeing all that money other people who are very  

Conservative feel really uneasy taking it out so  again it’s personal preference but if if you do it   in the right way let’s say you take 80 000 out you  know 300. now you owe 380. the house is worth 800.   you’re still 50 uh loan to value or less you’ve  got a comfortable fixed rate mortgage you can   afford it’s not stretching

You and you take that  80 000 and you start the business you’ve always   wanted to start what if that business generates  a hundred thousand dollars a year that could be   a humongous pro right and i’ve seen it it works or  you take that 80 000 invested another property you   got a great screaming deal on a property that you 

Know your cousin bobby joe is is selling and and   you’re going to get a great deal and the thing’s  going to kick off four or 500 a month in cash flow   that down payment for that that could be a pro   the con to that exact scenario is over leveraging  yourself equals more risk and so i’ve i’ve seen   this as well and i’m

Not going to sugarcoat things  you’ve got a property that’s worth 400 000 and you   owe 200 you say matt i want to pull out the max  whatever i can go to max which is 80 if you if you   live in the house so you pull all that cash out  you up your loan amount to 320 and today’s rates   and today’s fixed rate mortgage it’s hard

Really  to to get yourself in trouble but you could if   you had a comfortable payment at you know what you  owed before now you pull it up to 320 and now your   mortgage payment went up by five or six hundred  dollars the investment went bad and now you’ve got   a higher mortgage payment and it’s a struggle you  you know 2020

Prove that there’s you know plenty   of surprises in store for all of us all the time  maybe you lose your job or something and now that   2400 or 2500 mortgage payment is really a stretch  and you get yourself in trouble where you might   not have been in trouble had it been 1900 like it  was before all right in closing they’re

Definitely   is talk to a mortgage professional that cares   about you walk through your scenarios talk through  your scenarios find out what the best game plan is   and when you have a clear game plan in mind then  it’s okay let’s do this maybe we don’t take out   this much cash maybe take out this much maybe we  just
