Cash home buyers are the home buyers of choice for any home seller and home seller’s realtors.
- Cash buyers normally can get the winning bid on a property with multiple offers

- Most buyers do not want to tie up their cash on a home purchase
- However, many buyers do have the means of pulling the cash together to purchase a home cash
- Often they may want to do a cash-out refinance right after their purchase
In this article, we will discuss and cover the guidelines on cash-out refinance mortgages.
Waiting Period Requirements On Cash-Out Refinance
Many home buyers just assume that if they purchase a home with cash that they can turn around and do a cash-out refinance the next day.
- They often borrow money from family, relatives, or close friends and will pay them back right after they close by doing a cash-out refinance
- Unfortunately, after the major 2008 real estate market collapse, cash-out refinance rules and regulations have changed
- There are strict rules with regards to doing a cash-out refinance after a home purchase
- There are mandatory waiting periods to do a refinance mortgage
- This is for both Conventional and FHA mortgage loan programs
FHA Loan Refinance Mortgage
FHA loan programs have a 6 month waiting period for a rate and term refinance mortgage. The maximum loan to value on a rate and term FHA Refinance Mortgage is 97.75% LTV.
- To do a cash-out FHA Loan refinance mortgage, there is a 12 month waiting period
- The maximum cash-out loan to value on an FHA loan refinance mortgage is capped at 85% LTV
- The property cannot be listed on the market on any refinance loans
Conventional Loan Refinance
To do a rate and term, as well as a cash-out, refinance, there is a six month waiting period after a home purchase.
- The maximum loan to value on a conventional cash-out refinance is 80% loan to value
- Two appraisals may be required depending on the conventional lender
Fannie Mae Delayed Financing Mortgage Program: No Waiting Period For Cash-Out Refinance
Under Fannie Mae’s Delayed Financing mortgage program, there is no waiting period to do a cash-out refinance mortgage.
- A homeowner can do a cash-out refinance mortgage the next day after they close the home cash
- There are terms with Delayed Financing
- Maximum cash-out on refinance mortgage with the Delayed Financing program is 70% and the loan amount
- It cannot be greater than the actual purchase price
For example, here is a case scenario:
- if you purchased a home for $200,000 cash
- want to do a cash-out refinance a mortgage under the delayed financing program
- the maximum mortgage loan amount is $140,000
Here is a case study:
- purchased the home for $100,000
- did $100,000 worth of renovations to the home
- home is appraised at $200,000
- the maximum borrower can get a cash-out refinance is $100,000
- not $140,000 because loan amount cannot be greater than the purchase price
- on this case is $100,000
