Don't Work With the Wrong Lender
Are you trying to access the equity in your home, but lenders are saying you can only get a loan up to 80% of the home’s value? If you have equity in your home, but lenders are restricting the amount of cash out you can receive, it’s easy to get frustrated and discouraged.
If you don't receive enough cash out, you might not be able to:
UNLIMITED CASH OUT
Some big banks will limit the amount of cash out to $250k or $500k. We do not limit how much cash you can receive up to the program LTV requirements.
UP TO 95% FINANCING
Unlock your home equity with up to 95% total financing with a cash out refinance plus a post-closing equity line.
MORE WAYS TO QUALIFY
We have several programs that do not require tax returns so you can get approved and close on your cash out refinance loan.
What Our Clients Have to Say:
"Before working with Andrew Tamajon I applied for a mortgage with another lender but later got denied. Getting denied for a mortgage was unexpected and defeating. Looking back, I should have realized that most loan officers out there just don't understand self-employed income. Andrew Tamajon knew right away what I was going through and his experience working with other business owners gave me the confidence I needed to move forward. I am happy to say I am now a proud self-employed home owner and I owe it to Andrew Tamajon. I'd recommend him to anyone who is self-employed!"
"I was concerned that I would not find any reasonable options catering to my self-employed situation. I was able to get approved and close on my home because Doug Adler thoroughly guided me through all options and found one that best suited my needs. I would absolutely recommend Doug Adler and his team!"
Christian and Michelle B.
"I am a successful freelancer who after a few years of major growth decided I was ready to take the next step and buy my dream home. The problem was I was told by multiple lenders I could not get a mortgage because of my tax returns which made me feel stressed and overwhelmed. I thought all hope was lost until I scheduled a consultation with Andrew Tamajon. He completely understood my situation and guided me through options I didn't know I had. Ultimately, Andrew and his team helped me close on my dream home. I would absolutely recommend Andrew Tamajon and his team to anyone, especially if you are self-employed!"

What is a cash-out refinance?
A cash out refinance is a home loan that replaces your existing mortgage with a loan that is larger than what you currently owe on your home. The difference will be paid directly to you in cash which you can use for home improvements, debt consolidation, investments, or other purposes. The rates and terms on your new mortgage will be re-negotiated during closing.
Is cash-out refinance taxable?
No. The cash that you take out during a cash-out refinance is not considered as income, so you will not need to pay taxes on it.
What are the benefits of a cash-out refinance?
Here are a few of the potential benefits:
- Get lower interest rate than your current mortgage
- You can use the cash however you want
- No maximum amount of cash out
- Interest may be tax deductible
- It could eliminate high-interest debt
- You could increase your home’s value with home improvement
- Can save you thousands of dollars in interest over time
Who is a good candidate for a cash-out refinance?
A cash-out refinance can offer a lot of financial benefits. Here are some of the most common scenarios in which a cash-out refinance is a good option:
- Pay For College: A low interest 15-30 year mortgage can be a good option for someone who needs to pay for higher education, especially when compared to high interest student loans with shorter terms. There are a few factors to consider so be sure to consult with a loan officer first.
- Home improvements or renovations: If you’re looking to make some upgrades to your property, a cash-out refinance can be used to cover those costs.
- Secure a lower interest rate: If you have any monthly bills that carry a high interest rate, that may cost you thousands of dollars of interest over time. The interest rate on your cash-out refinance will generally be lower than the rate on high-interest debt like credit cards. You can use your home equity to pay off your debt and save money on interest over time.
- Debt consolidation: Making multiple payments each month can be challenging. You can use a cash-out refinance to pay off student loans, auto loans, or other debts and streamline your payments into one convenient sum, and save money on your monthly payments.
- Investments and savings: Freeing up cash to put toward retirement or other savings accounts can be a smart financial move, especially if you are transferring money to an account with compounding interest.
Is there a limit to how much you can cash-out?
Most banks will restrict you to 80% of the value of the home, we go to 85%.
We provide a post-closing HELOC for another 10%, which brings total up to 95%
Some banks will limit you to 250k-500k, especially on jumbo loans. We don’t have a limit, including on Jumbo loans.
Can I get a no doc refinance?
Yes, at LoanBud we offer no doc refinances using only bank statements and allow you to take cash out up to 85% of the value of the property.
Can I see an example of a cash-out refinance?
Let’s say that you need $60,000 to do a large renovation on your home that you purchased for $500,000. Let’s also say that: You put $50,000 down initially. You have paid off an additional $50,000 by making monthly payments. Currently, you owe $400,000 on your home, which means that you have 20% equity. In order to secure the $60,000 that you need for your renovations, you can do a cash-out refinance and take out a $460,000 loan. The initial $400,000 will go toward paying off your first mortgage and the remaining $60,000 will go straight to your pocket. Now, your monthly payments will go toward paying down the principal balance and interest on the $460,000 that you borrowed.
Can I get a mortgage if I haven't filed a tax return?
Yes, if you are self-employed you can get a mortgage with unfiled tax returns. Since you are qualifying using 12 - 24 months of bank statements, and not using tax returns, we do not verify whether or not your tax returns have been filed.
