FHA Streamline Refinance: Requirements for 2024

If you currently have an FHA mortgage and you don’t have enough equity to refinance it into a conventional loan, the FHA Streamline Refinance is the easiest way to get a lower rate and monthly payment.

The FHA streamline takes your current loan, and can drop it down to the market rate, with limited loan paperwork required. With the streamline, lenders don’t have to verify your income and do not require an appraisal. Because of that, they close faster than other loans, and can have very low closing costs.

What is a FHA Streamline Refinance Loan?

It is a special government refinance program reserved for homeowners with existing FHA mortgages.
