With so many cash-rich buyers in our California and Texas markets, we want to remind everyone that “Delayed Financing” is sometimes a great option for buyers.
Delayed Financing is a conventional financing provision that allows “all-cash” buyers to immediately do a cash-out refinance after an all-cash purchase closes.
The advantage for buyers of course is that they can make far more competitive all-cash offers and then still take advantage of very low-rate mortgage financing after close.
There are two caveats: (1) the cash for the all-cash purchase must come solely from the borrower’s own funds (no loans of gifts); and (2) the Delayed Financing must close within 180 days of close of escrow.
If buyers use “gift funds” for an all-cash purchase, they have to wait 180 days before they can refinance.
In addition, buyers should know that delayed financing transactions are subject to “cash-out” guidelines, with slightly higher interest rates and loan-to-value ratios typically limited to 75%.
Delayed Financing Is Subject To Cash-Out Guidelines
A cash-out loan is the refinancing of an existing mortgage into a larger mortgage that not only changes the interest rate and the terms of the loan, but also advances cash to you. You can use the cash-out for anything of course, including home improvements, tuition, and debt consolidations.
Loan-to-value restrictions and credit standards are tighter for cash-out loans and interest rates are usually higher. You also need to make sure you have sufficient equity to meet cash-out guidelines, but our experts are happy to assist with this determination with our free home valuation estimates.
