Refinancing after Divorce.

I finalized my divorce 30 days ago and with the rates going down I finally need to refinance my home. My current loan was closed January 2010, and my rate is 5.03. I want to change the rate because it's high...I know the rate for 30-year-fix is now 4.65. The loan is 80/20 and I owe $629k on the first mortgage and I owe $299k on second. My home value is appx. $1,310k right now. I have about $380k in cash. I had no interaction when my x-wife purchased the home in 2010. I need to understand what my options are. Your professional recommendations/suggestions, I would greatly appreciate. by ywhail590 from Woodland Hills, California. Aug 14th 2018 Reply

In short you can refinance. More info would be needed regarding terms. Equity position looks good as well as assets. Must meet high balance or jumbo guidelines depending on which loan structure would best fit your needs. Feel free to contact me locally at 562.254.5616 or you can schedule a call as well:
