Yes, you can refinance your mortgage with a HUD Section 184 loan. The process for refinancing is very similar to applying for a new mortgage. Submit an application to get started, and a Mortgage Originator will contact you to discuss your options.
With a HUD Section 184 loan from Alaska USA, you have a low down payment, and you don’t need to purchase private mortgage insurance. That’s because HUD guarantees the mortgage loan when it’s made to an eligible borrower.
If you want to buy a home within the next few months, then it’s a good idea to get preapproved. Preapproval shows the seller that you’re serious about buying and you have the funds you need to make a purchase. If you’re searching for a home in a competitive market, preapproval makes your offer more attractive to sellers and gives you a critical advantage over other potential buyers.
While many lenders cancel their preapprovals after 90 days, there’s no expiration date on ours. If any of the documents in your credit approval file are out of date, we’ll offer you the opportunity to update them so that you can keep your preapproval in place.
Your credit score affects the interest rate you qualify for when you apply for a mortgage. With a higher credit score, you can usually qualify for a lower interest rate, which lowers your monthly payment and reduces the overall cost of your loan.
However, because HUD Section 184 loans are guaranteed, you may still qualify, even if you don’t have a great credit score.
