Recently Funded: $157,000, Single-Family Investment Property in Baton Rouge, LA

The borrower had purchased the property only six months earlier. She undertook a complete remodel. We were able to close a cash-out refinance on current appraised value and pull equity of the property.

Generally, lenders want to see that the borrower has owned the property for 12 months or more before funding a cash-out refinance on the current appraised value. Six months is the bare minimum.

Lenders also want to see borrowers put skin the game — money placed into improvements to justify the higher value so soon after purchase. A cash-out refinance will be based on purchase price plus documented improvements. Here, the borrower kept track of every dollar spent on the rehab, which helped bolster her position.
