3 Tips for Preparing for a New Baby: Financially

Do you have a long “To-Do” list preparing for a new baby? If getting a cash-out to refinance is one of them, read on to discover the advantages and what you can do with this type of home loan.


#1 Remodeling for Baby & Increased Equity


  • Add a nursery to your home instead of moving to a larger place, an extra 300 to 500 square feet can make a small home much more livable.


  • Remodel your existing home to make it more kid-friendly. Consider opening the floor plan and possibly adding an extra bathroom.



  • Ensure your laundry room is large enough and has an efficient floor plan. You’ll be washing lots of clothes and linens!


#2 Lower Your Payment for Better Cash Flow


Whenever you’re considering refinancing, whether you’re getting cash-out or not, it’s great to snag a lower interest rate and save money.

If you’ve had your loan longer than a few years, there’s a good chance you could get a lower rate. Ask your Homestead loan officer for your options.


#3 Eliminate PMI to Save Even More


If you still have private mortgage insurance on your loan, that’s another good reason to refinance. By getting a new mortgage that doesn’t require PMI, you could save $100 or more a month.
