We are opening up the mailbag today to answer some listener questions about the mortgages and refinancing. Alice asks whether there is a difference between getting a mortgage for one home versus a second home? They are going to look at a lot of the same things: income, credit, and debt ratio. But you want to be aware of new interest rate regulations and your debt ratio.

Are home equity loans better than a cash-out refinance option? A home equity loan is a second mortgage option. A cash-out refinance is an adjustment to your first mortgage. Peter is wondering if he can get a new servicer without refinancing? Unfortunately, you can’t request a new servicer and these complaints are usually rare. But if you refinance you could go to a new servicer. Join us today as we take an in-depth look at these questions on today’s podcast.
