Many people don’t know that you can refinance from a non-VA loan into a VA loan. This is done frequently.
VA Streamline IRRRL
The VA has created a program called the Streamline Refinance or otherwise known as IRRRL, to provide a way for current VA homeowners to lower their interest rate with absolutely NO out-of-pocket costs. These loans do not require your traditional information and are a lot faster than a typical loan.
This Refinance allows you, the borrower, to refinance your current interest rate to a lower rate than you currently have. This program is only available to veterans who are refinancing their ORIGINAL VA Home Mortgage and utilized their original eligibility to get a lower rate with another Lender.
The term “No Cost” Streamline refers to you not having any out-of-pocket expenses. There are costs always associated with refinancing, but these are simply added to the loan. One way to lower your closing costs even more is to let the lender pay the costs in exchange for a higher interest rate. If you would like the absolute lowest rate possible you can obtain a market rate, or buy down your rate, and roll the closing costs into the new loan.
