Is it possible to refinance to a conventional mortgage from FHA and get cash out?

I'm looking to pull cash out, as well as get rid of my PMI. Is this possible? Loan closed in 2012 for $320k, and since my property has gone up by about $90-100K in value. I have good credit in the high 600's. by berlin.wan2824 from Garden City, Idaho. Oct 21st 2015 Reply

It's possible.. conforming guidelines allow you to go up to 80% Loan to Value when doing a cash out refinance.. so assuming your home is now worth $420K, then your maximum loan amount would be $336K. So you could do a cash out refi, but you wouldn't be able to pull out that much.. I'm a Broker here in Scottsdale AZ and I only lend in Arizona.

Yes you can refinance from FHA to conventional. Max LTV for cash out with conventional is 80%. For you, it will depend on how much your home appraises for. If the value comes in at $420K, the max loan for cash out is $336K, depending on how you pay for closing costs you won't get much back. Also your interest rate with a credit score in the high 600's will not be that great, especially after the cash-out hit. Best to speak with a local loan officer or two and see what your options are and if it will make sense or not.
