1. Reduced Interest Rates

HERO loans, known for their steep interest rates, often surpassing 8%, can be a heavy financial burden. By refinancing, you can take advantage of more competitive rates currently available, leading to significant savings over time.

2. Maximize Tax Benefits

Recent changes in the tax code have placed caps on the deductibility of HERO loans, potentially diminishing your tax advantages. Our refinancing solutions are designed to navigate these changes, ensuring you maximize your tax deductions.

3. Avert Potential Liens

Unlike government-backed loans, HERO loans can create a superior lien on your property, posing risks in the event of a default. Refinancing your HERO loan mitigates this risk, helping you maintain control over your property's equity.

Can I refinance a HERO loan?

It’s important to know that while refinancing is possible, eligibility will depend on adherence to current lending criteria. Recent FHA regulations specify that HERO loans must be settled before refinancing. We’re here to guide you through the qualification process – reach out to us for a consultation at NO COST.

What is a HERO loan?

The Home Energy Renovation Opportunity (HERO) program provides financing solutions for homeowners eager to upgrade to energy-efficient alternatives. From solar panels to HVAC systems, and even to roofing, HERO facilitates financing for various green home improvements. The program allows the loan to be affixed to the property, with repayment conveniently made through property taxes.

How Does Cash-Out Refinancing Work?

If your home has accumulated enough equity, cash-out refinancing could be a viable path. The FHA sets a maximum loan-to-value (LTV) ratio at 80%, while the VA offers a generous cash-out plan up to 100% LTV for qualified borrowers. Wondering if you meet the requirements? Contact us for a complimentary estimate.

What Are the Challenges Associated with Refinancing a HERO Loan?

A HERO loan’s unique structure, being tied to the property rather than the homeowner, can add complexity, especially when considering the repayment through property tax assessments. Understanding the implications of this type of financing is crucial, whether you’re planning to refinance, sell, or upgrade your home.
