COVID-19 has many of us scrutinizing our budgets, trying to keep some cashflow and ahead on high interest debt.
Many mortgage lenders have re-introduced the cash back mortgage, to help buyers and current home owners at a time when people need it the most.
This type of mortgage product pays up to 3% of the mortgage amount to the benefit of the homeowner upon the closing of the sale or the switching/transferring of a current mortgage. The amount of funds received depends on the size of the loan and the percentage of the cash back chosen.
Some great reasons to use a cash back:
- If you are purchasing a home and don’t have enough funds for closing costs.
- If you are purchasing a home and want to or need to pay down high interest debts.
- If you have a current mortgage, you can switch to a lender offering this product and use the funds to pay off debts or free up cashflow.
