Types of VA refinance loans

When considering a VA refinance, there are two options: a streamline refinance or a cash-out refinance

  • VA streamline refinance: True to its name, this program, also known as the Interest Rate Reduction Refinance Loan (IRRRL, pronounced “earl”), involves little paperwork.
  • VA cash-out refinance: With a VA cash-out refinance, you can refinance your current mortgage — regardless of whether it's a VA loan or a conventional loan — and get cash by borrowing against your home’s equity.

VA refinance pros and cons

VA loans can be a strong option for qualifying borrowers, but there are also downsides.

Pros

  • No down payment or private mortgage insurance (PMI) requirement
  • More flexible credit underwriting
  • Refinance options such as an IRRRL

Cons

  • A VA funding fee that can be between 0.5 percent and 3.6 percent, depending on the kind of refinance
  • Specific service requirements — this isn’t a drawback if you meet them, but it means you won’t qualify for VA loans if you don’t
