HUD 223(f) Loans and Cash Out Refinancing
Can you get cash out if you refinance a property with a HUD 223(f) loan? The answer is yes, but only under certain conditions. Specifically, HUD 223(f) loans only permit cash out when 80% of the property's value is greater than the existing debt plus any and all transaction costs. However, only 50% of the funds will be provided to the borrower at closing. The remaining 50% will be put in escrow until the borrower completes any important repairs. On top of that, the repairs must be inspected and approved by HUD before the funds are released.
Can You Get More Than 50% of Your Cash Out Funds at Closing?
Yes, but only sometimes. In some situations, a waiver may allow borrowers to reduce the amount of cash 'held back' to 25%. This provides borrowers with 75% of their cash out funds at closing.
