Looking for Owner Occupied Refinance Programs?
As interest rates drop, you may be in the market to refinance your home loan. Be aware that owner-occupied refinancing is a little different from second-home or investment-home refinancing. Generally speaking, owner-occupied refinance rates are lower and,theyare exempt from some of the fees and points imposed on second-home and investment-home refinancing.
When you apply for refinancing, the application form will ask if you intend to live in the house or not. Saying that you will use the home as a primary residence will allow you to get a lower interest rate. However, if you say that you intend to use the home as your primary residence you will need to:
1) move into the house within 30 to 60 days after the closing date; and
2) live in the house for at least a year.
Failing to do the above will land you in trouble for committing fraud against the lender (occupancy fraud, mortgage fraud, bank fraud).
