Your next step is to complete a full application.
This refinance loan lowers your interest rate and principal payment by using your current FHA mortgage. Because of this, you don't need to get an additional appraisal, bank or asset statements, or credit report. Your lender's underwriters can use all of this paperwork from your initial FHA loan. The reduced amount of paperwork makes this loan "streamline" and quick.
An FHA Streamline refinance allows for reduced interest rates. Your loan is refinanced into a mortgage loan which insures that you will receive the lowest interest rate available to you.
Because you are essentially starting your mortgage over, you will add some years to your loan term, but lower your monthly payments.
An FHA Streamline Refinance loan does not require another appraisal or credit check which not only makes the refinance process quicker, but also cheaper. You may be eligible to pay no money out of pocket at all.
An FHA Streamline Refinance loan is only available to homeowners with a current FHA home loan. This means that you've had an FHA loan for 210 days and have made at least 6 on-time monthly payments.
